Wal-Mart buys ad space to defend self, expects us to keep straight face

Wal-Mart Turns to Ads to Address Its Critics (NY Times):
"Wal-Mart is working for everyone," read the headline on the ad from the world's largest retailer, quoting Lee Scott, Wal-Mart's president and chief executive. "Some of our critics are working only for themselves." The ad then went on to defend its treatment of its 1.2 million employees in the United States, saying it provided 'excellent advancement opportunities' and good pay and benefits.
