Skip to comments.Romney to seek Washington Post retraction
Posted on 06/27/2012 11:01:03 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Mitt Romney campaign representatives will meet with The Washington Post today to seek a formal retraction of its June 21 report that Bain Capital invested in firms that specialized in outsourcing American jobs, POLITICO has learned.
The representatives will meet with executive editor Marcus Brauchli and other senior Post staff at 2 p.m. today at the Post's offices in Washington.
The group intends to argue that the Post's allegations against Bain Capital and the firms in question are either incomplete or inaccurate, sources familiar with the meeting say. Specifically, the group will argue that the Post misinterpreted the SEC filings it examined for its report and failed to adequately account for the support these firms gave to U.S. exports or U.S. businesses through foreign hiring. The campaign raised similar objections to the story prior to its publication.
The group has prepared defenses for each firm mentioned in the Post's article including Chippac, Corporate Software, GT Bicycle, Modus Media, SMTC Corp., and Stream International on a case by case basis.
"The Post's editors take all complaints seriously and are always willing to listen to concerns and look into them," Post spokesperson Kris Coratti told POLITICO, when asked about the meeting. She did not provide any further details.

Way to go, Mitt. Stick it to em!
Why didn’t Bush at least defend the troops he sent on those missions when THEY came under attack from Liberals here at home?
They would probably keep it and hire a bunch of people from India to write the articles.
He won every battle with Pelosi over funding to make sure the troops got what they needed.
The Bush team battled back against just about every attempt the MSM made to belittle the military men/women so that the liberals were not able to attack the troops as they had during Vietnam.
This was one thing Bush definitely got RIGHT.
didn’t the guy guy that does the true or false stories for the WaComPost give the outsourcing claim four pinnochios??
I’m shocked /s
