Wal-Mart Informative - Walmart admits to fake blog
Stumbled upon this article today. Found it very enlightening the show the lengths corporations will go to for good PR.
"The Wal-Mart blog started as a travelogue by "Jim and Laura," who were traveling in an RV across country and stopping each night in a Wal-Mart parking lot, often posting lengthy and positive entries about the retailer following conversations with Wal-Mart employees. The bloggers were later revealed to be Ms. St. Claire and Mr. Thresher."
Apparently these "bloggers" were hired by Wal-mart to build good consumer buzz about the company. Funny how they shot themselves in the foot.
