  1. Re: Fitch/Marshfield.
    I am curious to understand the process by which a credit rating agency such as Fitch gets access to information like the one that they mentioned in downgrading Marshfield. This info is deep in the belly of the beast – did Marshfield willingly shared it with them because that’s a requirement for continued access to the debt market? Or, did Fitch do some sleuthing by having its employees hang out in bars close to the executive boardroom of Marshfield?
