English term or phrase: to tow a party line
"They did what their editors and proprietors wanted them to do. They towed a party line, they distorted, they perverted the truth, and they compromised."
Eugenia
se adhierieron/sometieron a la política (de la empresa)
Explanation:
Hello!

The only comment I would add is that "the party line" doesn't necessarily refer to a political party. It sounds more like it's talking about the rules and regulations of a company in this context.

El modelo político invitó a inscribirse para garantizar el pan nuestro de cada día. Así, ya no importó cuáles eran las órdenes que se recibían, sino la subordinación indiscutible a la línea del partido, lo cual habló de obediencia ciega a los jefes de la respectiva tolda.
