Walmart hands NY Times' editors their own posteriors

I have never met David Tovar, Walmart’s vice president, corporate communications, but I’d like to shake his hand. In this brilliant response to a column by Timothy Egan of the New York Times, Mr. Tovar puts to shame the editors who worked on the Egan piece, literally taking a red pencil to the piece they deigned to publish, and showing them how to do their jobs.
As you can suss from this excerpt, the premise of the Egan column is that Starbucks (which dispenses expensive coffee to the type of people who work art the New York Times) is a good company, while Walmart (which offers low prices and improves the standard of living of the lower half of the income distribution) is baaaad. The obvious class bias here is something Mr. Tovar is far too polite to mention, but it is what sticks in my craw even more than the sloppiness with facts that makes the Egan column disgraceful.
The left in the United States, of which the Times is the leading media spokesman, needs villains in order to sell its political program, which, on its own, is unappealing. Witness the Obama re-election campaign, which relied on demonizing Mitt Romney as having magically caused a worker at a company his firm invested in to get cancer. Saul Alinsky, who dedicated his seminal work to Lucifer, taught them to isolate their targets, and they have learned well.

The left especially hates Walmart because its a private business that improves the lives of those less well off by selling consumer goods and groceries at the lowest possible prices.
And all of it without the “assistance” of the government.
And ass we all know, private enterprise is evil, while government is good, wise and benevolent.

Thanks for posting. I went to the WMT website to get the original on my Facebook page to counter those that show up regularly with the anti-WMT and anti-Koch Bros. screeds.
