Mike Daisey responds to ‘This American Life’ retraction of Apple supply story
The public radio program “This American Life” retracted its story “Mr. Daisey and the Apple Factory” on Friday, saying that the piece “contained significant fabrications.”
The piece, which was broadcast in January, helped set off a protest movement that grew after the New York Times ran articles on conditions in factories that are a part of Apple’s supply chain. The radio program was based on Mike Daisey’s show, “The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs,” which debuted in Washington in 2011 and is scheduled to return to the Wooly Mammoth Theater Company later this month.
