Presidential candidate Fiorina defends Hewlett-Packard tenure

Former Hewlett-Packard Co Chief Executive, Carly Fiorina, is interviewed on Good Morning America in New YorkRepublican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina is defending her record as a corporate executive after a critic took over a website with her name on it to highlight job losses at Hewlett-Packard Co while she served as CEO. Fiorina, who announced her candidacy on Monday in the 2016 race, said she would run on her record at Hewlett-Packard, but added in reference to the carlyfiorina.org website: “Obviously, would I have preferred that we bought up every conceivable domain name? Yes.” Visitors to carlyfiorina.org came across the message, “Carly Fiorina failed to register this domain. So I’m using it to tell you how many people she laid off at Hewlett-Packard.” The website showed sad-face emoticons to symbolize what it said were 30,000 job losses at the tech company for which she served as chief executive from 1999 to 2005.
