Description

Wal-Mart was exposed for trying to influence public opinion, mostly the state and local politics. One couple, Jim and Laura, were compensated by Wal-Mart as they took a trip across the nation and visited each store on their way from Georgia to Las Vegas. Wal-Mart gave the couple free gas money and food as they talked to its employees at each store and discovered that all the workers were happy with their work and have a love for Wal-Mart. But there was a speculation that the couple's trip was put together by the people at Wal-Mart's headquarters in Arkansas.
