The Great Fisking!

In a great fisking Walmart takes on the New York Times.  It becomes obvious that Timothy Egan of the Times didn’t have a clue about what he was writing about. There are certain Institutions and Corporations the the leftist rally against.  It seems as if there is something they don’y like about the entity, every thing about them must be under attack.

The Great Fisking

Walmart didn’t address the comparison of Walmart with Costco.

What could change Walmart is growing public disdain for the company. A new poll by Lake Research Partners found that 28 percent of consumers surveyed have an unfavorable view of Walmart — almost five times the negative sentiment felt for Costco. Poor treatment of workers was cited most often as the reason not to shop there.

I seems as though It would have been fairer to compare Walmart’s Sam’s opertion to Costco rather than the whole of Walmart. But the New York times isn’t about being fair is it?

The same types of attacks are made against the Koch brothers .  Most are completely off the wall because:

  • They aren’t right wing extremist. They are Libertarians.
  • They have no more influence on elections than George Soros , the Kenedys or George Clooney.
  • They give money to organizations such as PBS’ NOVA and United Negro College Fund
