Days after banning the sale of the Pensacola News Journal from its stores because management disliked disparaging comments by one of its columnists, AP reports that Wal-Mart has relented and once again will allow sales of the paper in its stores and from newspaper boxes on its property. From AP:
"We did make an error in judgment by removing the papers from our stores," Wal-Mart Stores Inc. spokeswoman Sharon Weber said in an e-mail from company headquarters in Bentonville, Ark. "They should be available in our stores by the end of the week."
Market pressure wins out over censorship.
