It does not seem to be a big deal in Mexico, some air time months back and "poof" end of story.
That may be true, Tepetepan. But WalMart markets themselves in the US as being Red White and Blue, folksy and honest. It's just good honest business sense that they are owned by several of the richest people on the planet.
They are careful that most of their shady business dealings, not only with governments, but with their business partners, is poorly reported, or not at all.
The story may not have legs in MX. But if it gains them in the US, it will bode poorly for their chummy relationships with cities and states all over the country.
One can only hope, can't one?
