Wal-Mart enlists bloggers, cue controversy :: blogging4business
It was only a matter of time before Wal-Mart tried to establish a foothold in the same forum that attacks it daily and has sprung to life such public advocacy groups as WalmartWatch.com and WakeupWalMart. And for this they should be congratulated. But I cannot help but think that much of Wal-Mart’s problems stem from its decades-long policy of closed-door PR, effectively creating a seal-tight vacuum of information around the company. I have been hung up on more times by a Wal-Mart PR in my journalism career than by any other company, bar none. Even with this trusty blog, I would doubt their policy towards me would change.Message to Wal-Mart PR: Listen to Bernhard's message.
