* For ''[[Franchise/TheMatrix The Ultimate Matrix Collection]]'', the filmmakers included two [[AlternateDVDCommentary Alternate DVD Commentaries]]: one by philosophers who liked all three movies, and one by critics who gave the original ''Matrix'' a good review and then gave poor reviews to ''Reloaded'' and ''Revolutions''. [[WordOfGod The Wachowskis say]] they did this to let viewers "triangulate their own position" between the two.

* In the first season of AmericanCrimeStory, OJ Simpson's defense team specifically hire Alan Dershowitz because they were sick of him trashing them on the news, and it was the only way to shut him up. Apparently this does reflect real life.

* ''Discworld/TheFifthElephant'': The Low King hands over the examination of the Scone of Stone to a rival claimant. When Vimes (who knows the Scone is a fake) doesn't see why the King just handed over the throne like that, the King tells him Albrechtsson is a noted historian... [[spoiler:and therefore is also aware that Scones don't last more than a few hundred years,]] and prefers having a king on the throne than another civil war (which involves murders in the dark and collapsed mine tunnels).

* The Tamul Empire from David Eddings's ''{{TheElenium/Tamuli}}'' likes to do this with revolutionaries who aren't too fanatical to be reasoned with. Clearly, there's some sort of problem, or else there wouldn't be revolutionaries. And since the revolutionary has made it their business to pinpoint the problem, clearly they're the person to fix it. How would you like a job as regional governor? As for actually punishing them for their rebellion, regional governor is such a lousy, unpopular job that the empire [[PromotedToScapegoat considers it to be punishment enough]].

* Pixar hired cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz to work on their upcoming movie ''Coco'', even though he has been critical of Disney in the past over their treatment of Latinos and Latino cultures.

Unfortunately, this actually caused many people to be angry at Lalo]], thinking he's been bought out.

* UsefulNotes/NeilDeGrasseTyson wasn't very happy about how the night sky in ''Film/{{Titanic}}'' [[SpecialEffectsFailure had been lazily mirrored]]. He ribbed Creator/JamesCameron about it several times, to the point that, finally, Cameron coolly replied, "Last time I checked, ''[[QualityByPopularVote Titanic]]'' [[QualityByPopularVote sold $1.3 billion worth of tickets, worldwide]]. [[SarcasmMode Imagine how many more tickets we would have sold if we'd gotten the sky right.]]" That deflated Tyson, but to his delight a few months later he was hired to provide a correct star map for the film's 10th anniversary DVD and 3D re-release.
