Corporate takover -- the continuing saga

In fact, Nader says the real scandal is that the Smithsonian has sold out to corporate America.

“There's been more criticism of Catherine Reynolds [who wanted to buy the Smithsonian's name, rep, etc. for her idea of a museum dedicated to American achievers] than all these corporate contributors and donators and concessionaires that are commercializing the Smithsonian as never before,” says Nader.

But there are corporate sponsors all over the Smithsonian Museum [why "but"? that's what Nader is saying -- ed.]. The flag is sponsored by Ralph Lauren. The IMAX Theater was just renamed the Lockheed Martin Theater. The Insect Zoo is named after the founder of Orkin Pest Control. [gag]
