For those that might be curious, the first round of the Worst Company in America (found on consumerist.com) is over.
RIAA vs. United Airlines: RIAA
Best Buy vs. U-Haul: U-Haul
Comcast vs. Sony: Sony
Time Warner Cable vs. Exxon: Exxon
Halliburton vs. News Corp.: Halliburton
AT&T/SBC/Cingular vs. Clear Channel: Clear Channel
Verizon vs. Bank of America: Verizon
Monsante vs. Wal-Mart: Wal-Mart
Don't forget, if you win the match you're a loser company. If you lose the match, well, you can't even lose at losing.
So the Round 2 matchups:

Sony vs. Exxon
Halliburton vs. Clear Channel
Verizon vs. Wal-Mart
