Walmart's Reply to the New York Times

Recently, the New York Times wrote a snarky editorial which was highly critical of Wal-Mart.  The retail giant is an easy target - it has been highly aggressive in its growth, predatory in its pricing, ruthless with its competition, and masterful in its logistics.  They have changed the retail landscape unlike any other company in history, save Amazon.  They're big, and they're easy to hate.

Unless, of course, you want to save some money.  In which case people love Wal-Mart.  Oh, they may not like the brand, per se, but they do indeed like the savings.

Hence, when the Old Grey Lady went after the Arkansas-based retailer, one expected society to "harrumph" along with the paper.  They know best, right?

Well, maybe not to the editing team at Wal-Mart, which passed along some suggestions (click for a full image):

I'm no fan of Wal-Mart.  As a competitor, they're a beast.  But I'm less of a fan of pompous, rich, white, old media, especially when they're looking down their noses at the rest of the world.  

Go try bullying someone else, New York Times.  You just got your ass kicked.
