    Someone remember this the next time there is screaming and yelling about evil corporations.
    For every nice thing like this a big corp does, how many rotten things do they do?

    Would they have done this had this not happened? As it is, this donation is a bargain for them, so I am not so sure I would paint them as the heroes because of this donation.

    I have worked for a few rotten ones in my career.

    Would they have donated $30,000 to her medical expenses? I assume that was a rhetorical question. Do many companies spend their days trolling the internet for victims of pit bull attacks?

    I'm curious what the "bargain" is here for them. Someone made a false accusation against them, dopes on the internet jumped all over a lie and went on the attack, their employees have been getting threatened. How is this a "bargain"? Do you always donate money to people who lob false accusations against you? I sure don't.

    That was kind of my point.

    At the end of the day, it is buttloads of free advertising. It's all over the news. You think 30k would buy them that? They are no fools.

    Well, now that I think about it, it is good advertising. Good for them. I hope they gain something from this.
