Truth-squadding Wal-Mart

December 22, 2013 - Harry Eagar
RtO has been here before, but since it had no effect -- and because I dislike murderous business owners -- we're going back.

According to the NY Times, Bangladesh is prosecuting some factory owners and managers who callously murdered 112 workers. Any rightwingers out there interested in disputing the proposition that without the despised MSM, that would never have happened?

However, that is not the subject of this post, edifying as the change may be (assuming that the prosecution will be honest, which is probably assuming too much).

The Times reports, blandly enough, that

"The fire also revealed the poor controls that top retailers had throughout their supply chain, since retailers like Walmart said they were unaware that their apparel was being made in such factories."

It's true that Wal-Mart said that. It isn't true, and no one who knows how Wal-Mart is run would fall for it. Wal-Mart does not even allow its store managers to turn the lights off and on at their stores. The idea that it does not know intimately how its suppliers operate is preposterous.

Wal-Mart just didn't care, as long as no bad publicity was involved.
