    is what the refutation of your ads is about. They contain enough truth-like substance to qualify as "not lies" but they sure arent a fair representation of your business. Yes, you correctly point out that walmart DOES give measly, nearly meaningless "bonuses" to its employees. But your ad is trying to convey some idea that walmart "shares the wealth" with its employees and communities, and that if we only knew the "real story" we'd all just conclude that all the criticism of Walmart is just unfair. You're hiding beneath a very thin veneer of truth which is perhaps just what good pr flackiness dictates but it isnt a very defensible position among people who see through you. Its like you are saying, we dont STARVE our people to death, they each get a slice of bread and a glass of water every day, so its not true to say we didnt feed them.
