The Trail: 2012 Presidential News from the Field

Watch 'King of Bain' Video That's Causing a Stir

January 13, 2012

A super PAC supporting presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has created a 28-minute, documentary-style video that contains a highly negative appraisal of Republican front-runner Mitt Romney’s tenure as the head of the Bain Capital private equity company in the 1980s and 1990s.

The video, and excerpts from it that are airing in South Carolina in advance of the state’s Jan. 21 primary, have been condemned for inaccuracies and distortions by the Romney campaign and also by several conservative leaders who say it is tantamount to an attack on free market capitalism. The Washington Post’s fact-checkers analyzed the video and gave it a rating of four “Pinocchios,” its worst rating for truthfulness of a political statement, speech or ad.

The video is called King of Bain: When Mitt Romney Came to Town and was financed and produced by the super PAC Winning Our Future, run by former Gingrich aides.
