Bif. Zap. Zow. Another black eye for Wal-Mart
. An investigation is underway because a technician intercepted text messages and made unauthorized recordings of conversations between a New York Times reporter and Wal-Mart PR people. The technician has been fired. Wal-Mart says the tech operated independently. (Arch eyebrow here.) The U.S. attorney in Fort Smith is investigating. The NY Times,
presumably, is hot.
