    How disappointing to see Ben Heineman jump on the bandwagon criticizing Walmart without knowing the facts. "Wal-Mart appears to have operated like a compartmentalized criminal enterprise rather than a lawful global company.” That goes even further than the NY Times. As Heineman now positions himself as the conscience of the corporate world and sits in judgment, I have stopped listening. Has he never learned the lesson that the media pushes only one side of a story? I have now lost all respect for Ben Heineman.
