Retraction

Host:

Regrettably, we have discovered that one of our most popular episodes was partially fabricated. This week, we devote the entire hour to detailing the errors in Mr. Daisey Goes to the Apple Factory, Mike Daisey's story about visiting Foxconn, an Apple supplier factory in China. Rob Schmitz, a reporter for Marketplace, raises doubts on much of Daisey's story. 

Ira also talks with Mike Daisey about why he misled TAL during the fact-checking process. We end the show separating fact from fiction, when it comes to Apple's manufacturing practices in China.
