>> Remember back in June when the Washington Post ran a story that all but accused Mitt Romney of sending jobs to China while he was the head of Bain Capital? The Romney campaign pushed back, and the exchange got heated enough so that the WaPo’s ombudsman weighed-in, albeit tepidly. The story largely fizzled but the idea that Romney has shipped jobs abroad is now a part of the Obama campaign’s ad narrative.

Last Thursday, the same WaPo ombudsman took to the page to respond to a raft of reader complaints about outsourcing. Specifically, the Washington Post’s outsourcing of its customer service department to the Philippines:
I do not expect the Obama campaign to expand its ad narrative to include the grasping, miserly one percenters running the Post for sending American jobs abroad. That just doesn’t fit. Nor should we expect the Obama campaign to tweak the New York Times for how it treats its unionized workers. <<
