Samsung doesn't find satirical spoof amusing


www.latimes.com


Headlined "What People Got for Christmas," the English-language column also poked fun at global technology giant Samsung Electronics, referring to past bribery scandals as well as perceptions that its leaders are arrogant.

The piece was meant as a satirical spoof, the columnist says, but Samsung wasn't laughing.

It's called Satire, you don't have a choice in the matter.

Shows like Saturday Night Live would satirize politicians during election cycles, you don't see them suing over lost votes do you?
