Wal-Mart Listens. (Culture War).
Referring to consumer influence on Wal-Mart's decision, the March 6th New York Times reported: "Maxim has been sold in Wal-Mart for the last three years, while FHM was added recently. The standards and general content of the magazines have not changed, but Wal-Mart ... has been under pressure from Christian groups in the past over its distribution of various magazines."
This decision will undoubtedly hearten those seeking to clean up the culture. A Wal-Mart spokeswoman told the New York Times that the decision was made after "listening to our customers and associates."
