Bechtel strikes back. Romenesko has posted a link to this San Francisco Chronicle story in which the hometown heroes at Bechtel whine about the Globe's three-part series on its alleged mismanagement of the Big Dig. Says Bechtel flak Howard Menaker: "We are extremely disappointed in the article. We think it's an extreme misrepresentation of the facts and the history of the project." Whoa! Two extremes in the same quote! Must be serious.
Meanwhile, as the Globe series underscores, we just keep paying.
