101 Dumbest Moments In Business: Walmart Hiring Edelman

CNN has put together a list of the 101 Dumbest Moments in Business and Walmart’s choice to hire Edelman PR took home the golden dunce.

Ahh, Edelman. From the flogs, to the bullshit promise to remove the Nazi T-shirts, to well, we think CNN said it best when they said:

By year’s end Wal-Mart suffers its first quarterly profit drop in a decade, sees same-store sales decline in November’s run-up to the crucial holiday shopping season, and suffers a series of public relations gaffes so stunning that it lands six spots in this year’s edition of the 101 Dumbest Moments.

Congratulations, Edelman. We know you’re just as sorry about this as you are about the racist guy you hired to chair Working Families For Walmart. Oddly, this all seems somehow related to the anime porn. Darn those “filtering issues.” They’re everywhere.—MEGHANN MARCO
