BusinessWeek reports that a report on offshoring by Commerce Department staffers was altered by "political appointees," AKA All The President`s Men.

After holding off for more than a year, the Commerce Dept. has quietly released a study of offshoringothe movement of white-collar jobs to low-wage countries. But it`s not the even-handed assessment completed by staff analysts in June, 2004, after six months of research. The staff report was largely ditched, say outside experts who heard the staffers` views. Instead, these critics charge, Commerce political appointees put out a 12-page report that portrays offshoring as an unconditional boon to the U.S. economy.

BusinessWeek provides a web-only document dump of the originals of the report, before and after spin, which is something that you don`t always get from treezines. You do almost always get such links to the originals in articles, of course. (And if you`re feeling grateful, you can click here to donate.)

One further web exclusive:why don`t you email Secretary of Commerce Carlos M. Gutierrez, and ask him what`s going on?
