Editors of The Post met this afternoon with members of the Romney campaign to discuss The Post’s coverage of purported outsourcing by Bain Capital companies. As reported elsewhere, The Post refused to retract its story.
The Romney campaign has now gone nuclear, releasing a blow-by-blow rebuttal to The Post’s story.
Read The Romney Campaign's Rebuttal Below
The Washington Post asserted that under Mitt
Romney Bain Capital sent jobs overseas
based on an analysis of 6 companies
1. Corporate Software, Inc.
2. Stream International
3. Modus Media
4. GT Bicycle
No call centers at CSI or then Stream Int’l
were moved offshore under Mitt Romney
“By the time Romney left Bain, Stream’s call centers
had grown from just a few hundred people in
Massachusetts to approximately 5,000 employees
across the United States. Stream was not
‘shipping jobs overseas,’ but creating thousands of
jobs for American workers in places like
Massachusetts, Oregon, Tennessee, and Texas.
Stream’s international operations served foreign
clients in their local languages across Europe… If you
called Microsoft or Dell from the United States for
technical support, we answered the phones from one
of our locations in the United States. If you called
Microsoft, for instance, in French from France, we
answered your call in France.”
- Scott Murray, Former President of Stream
No production at Modus was moved offshore
under Mitt Romney
