Online PDF: “In a Wal-Mart town, critical film draws crowd”
Wal-Mart has a complex, controversial history in Columbia, Mo. Not only have family members of the owners resided in the city and sent children through the University of Missouri, but Columbia is one of the most Wal-Mart-saturated cities in the U.S. Writing this story about Robert Greenwald’s film—which took a critical inside look at the corporation—required that I maintain a neutral tone. I had to carefully examine and balance the interests of those invested in the story, including the corporation, protesters, college students, parents, etc. My article met with the editors’ approval and was considered an effective portrayal of the premiere.
