Is Wal-Mart editing their DVDs?

I've read somewhere that it was possible that they were doing so...I knew they were in fact editing their audio CDs, but after buying several movies from them, I never really noticed any scenes being altered. So my question is, are they really doing it?

I've never seen any info on it, but all edited CD's do say "EDITED" somewhere on them. I've never seen a DVD with that on.

No they don't edit their DVDs. The only thing they can do that comes close to "editing" them is choose to carry a Rated version when they have a choice to carry an Unrated cut vs. a Rated cut of a film.

The thing that still boggles my mind, is that Wal-Mart won't carry profanity laced CDs, and frowns upon "a-moral" books, movies and media, but by gosh, we'll sell guns so people can shoot each other. Right on!

I bought "Predator 2" from them and it was in its full gory, curse-word ridden goodness.

Walmart doesn't actually edit their CDs, the record companies do.
