Wal-Mart Apologizes For Nazi Imagery in Ad
After a Wal-mart funded ad with an image showing a 1933 Nazi book burning accompanied by the headline, Should we let government tell us what we can read?" appeared in the May 8 issue of the Arizona Daily Sun, complaints began to flood in and now Wal-mart is apologizing profusely. The ad states Wal-mart's position against a ballot proposal that would prohibit its expanding a store in the Flagstaff area to include a grocery store.
Wal-mart Director of Community Affairs Daphne Moore said the ad was "reviewed and approved by Wal-Mart, but we did not know what the photo was from. We obviously should have asked more questions." Well, yes. People get all uppity about this stuff don'tcha know?
