Romney strategist wants 'Fact Checker' to recheck facts on campaign ad1/26/2013
Some parts of the Romney campaign are still campaigning, apparently. Former Romney strategist Stuart Stevens asked Washington Post "Fact Checker" Glenn Kessler to reconsider his view that a Romney TV spot was B.S. The ad said Chrysler would soon build Jeeps in China, which would kill U.S. jobs, and that Obama should not have let it happen. Now that Jeep has expanded into China, Stevens wants a retraction. Kessler replied that no jobs are moving from America to China, Chrysler is actually adding Jeep jobs in the U.S., and thus the column won't be retracting squat. The Romney team is getting vindication elsewhere, however — Mitt's comment about Jeep jobs was called the "Lie of the Year" by PolitiFact, but it ended up being true. [Source]

Should the Post retract its column, or is it still correct?
