This American Life Retracts

A few weeks ago I posted about iGadgets and included a link to a story from “This American Life” called “Mr. Daisey Goes to the Apple Factory.”  Apparently the most salient points of the story were made up by Mr. Daisey.  The radio program dedicated its March 16 program to retracting the fictions previously aired.  Here is a link http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/460/retraction

I have to commend the program for making such a thorough retraction and confronting Mr. Daisey.  There are some very awkward pauses when they ask him why he lied.  Though Mr. Daisey is very disappointing in that he won’t really admit how poorly he behaved, it is good to hear someone be called out on what he had done.
