Walmart Edits the Times

by Ian Tuttle

Last week the New York Times published Timothy Egan’s attack on Walmart, the “corporate monolith” that, he charges, “is a net drain on taxpayers, [and is] forcing employees into public assistance with its poverty-wage structure.” Rather than pen an op-ed for the Grey Lady in response, Vice President of Walmart Corporate Communications David Tovar uncapped his red pen and had some fun. The editorial staff at the Times might take note.
