    Garry South: Where Is the Media's Record on Fiorina at Hewlett Packard?

    Comes now Fiorina, another corporate mogul singing her own praises about the wondrous achievements she supposedly wrought at a big company. We already know some of the inconvenient truths: fired 30,000 employees and shipped thousands more jobs overseas; engineered the disastrous acquisition of Compaq in 2002; had open feuds with the sons of both founders of this iconic company, one of which, Walter Hewlett, initiated a proxy fight against her; oversaw a 50 percent loss in shareholder value; was herself unceremoniously fired by the board after just five years, with a $22 million golden parachute -- and no one has hired her since.

    :lol:

    When this thread was started 4 years ago, it was "politics" because Carly Fiorina was running for Senate. Not so much anymore.

    Locked.
