From Wal-Mart Watch...........

Dear Friend,

Next time you talk on the phone, you may want to say “Hello” to Wal-Mart.

After all, recent news stories revealed they've been wiretapping phone conversations between their own PR staff and a New York Times reporter. Think about that for a second: Wal-Mart can't even trust its own spokespeople to "stay on message" with the media.

What’s more, Wal-Mart spies also intercepted text messages from people with no connection to the company at all.

Who knows who else they're listening to?

America's news reporters need your help. Send a letter to the editor of your local paper, and warn them that if they talk to someone from Wal-Mart, someone else might be listening.

Wal-Mart has always been about control -- control of their employees, control of their suppliers, control of government officials, and control of their image. That's why they've assembled a massive corporate intelligence operation, headed by a former CIA official.

Why is Wal-Mart so paranoid? If they go to such lengths to monitor and control their employees, what are they trying to hide from news reporters?

Right now, other reporters are surely working on their own stories about Wal-Mart -- maybe even in your community. Make sure they know by warning your local newspaper about Wal-Mart's wiretapping.

Thank you for your help, and remember to be careful what you say. Wal-Mart may be listening.
