FOX Joins Wal-Mart Attack Of Robert Greenwald's Documentary

Reported by Deborah - November 2, 2005

FOX joined Wal-Mart's attack against Robert Greenwald's new film, Wal-Mart - The High Cost Of Low Price
This morning on Fox & Friends Georgia Witkin, Fox psychological contributor, talked to Judge Napolitano about the massive offensive planned by Wal-Mart to discredit Greenwald. Interesting to note that the name of the movie was only mentioned once very quickly and Greenwald's name was never uttered. However, Napolitano made a rare reference to Greenwald's last film Outfoxed saying that this film was made by the same person who made," that awful movie, Outfoxed."

Georgia Witkin, a regular on Fox & Friends, wrote a book about stress so she has been the authority on the pain experienced by Katrina survivors. Today she was an expert on Wal-Mart shoppers claiming that "we shop with those that do the best for us." Witkin added that the PR firm plans to do a lot of polling to see if people really care that Wal-Mart workers have poor benefits and aren't treated well.

Napolitano reported that the documentary cost $2 million and the PR company plans to spend 10 times that amount fighting it. Witkins added that they expect 2 to 8 percent of Wal-Mart customers will be influenced.
