Varney also asked if Walmart planned to fire striking workers and promoted Walmart's charitable efforts following Hurricane Sandy.

However, there was no mention of the workers' side of the story: low wages, bad working conditions and retribution by management.

Following the segment, Fox News ran a banner ad which said "this program is brought to you by Walmart," followed by an advertisement for Walmart's Black Friday, reports MediaMatters.org.
