WAL-Mart Outfoxed

Robert Greenwald who did Outfoxed announced via email he is now working on a new film:

I am pleased to let everyone know that the next film will be all about Wal-Mart, and I mean ALL. After working in secret for months, I am glad we can let you know what is going on and how you can participate and help. However, be aware that we are still keeping many of the specifics about the film quiet as we don't want the Wal-Mart attack machine knowing what we are uncovering. Here is a good article in today's New York Times introducing the film.

More than a film, the plan is for WAL-MART: The High Cost of Low Price to be the catalyst to ignite a movement bringing fairness to the marketplace and ensuring a vibrant future for every family -- not just the Walton family. This is a unique opportunity to unite people across the political spectrum -- extending from family business owners, to teachers, to ministers. Republicans from the midwest echo the sentiments of Democrats on the west coast, all set against the backdrop of gun racks, NRA paraphernalia, and countless American flags. This is a love song to America, a uniting cause for a new millennium.
