Globe won't correct Romney-Bain item (another misleading headline and article)
The Boston Globe stands by its story about Romney is more like it. Refusal by the Globe to 'correct' implies the original Globe story was false and the Globe refuses to make it right.

Lord, I hate slanted reporting.

BOSTON, July 12 (UPI) -- The Boston Globe has declined a request by the Mitt Romney campaign to correct a story that Romney ran Bain Capital for three years longer than he says he did.

The newspaper reported Thursday that Securities and Exchange Commission documents filed after 1999, the year Romney said he left Bain, showed he was still indicated as the firm's "sole stockholder, chairman of the board, chief executive officer and president," and may have stayed at the helm of the Massachusetts firm until 2002.

Romney -- the presumptive Republican presidential nominee -- has said the bankruptcy of Bain Capital companies and the layoffs of some workers occurred after he resigned from the company in February 1999.

Both the firm and Romney's campaign say the indications in the filings are due to legal technicalities, and maintain he had no role in the firm after 1999.

Politico reported late Thursday that Boston Globe Editor Martin Baron, in an e-mail to Romney campaign communications director Gail Gitcho, declined the campaign's request to correct the newspaper's story.
