FIRST TIPOFF WAS THAT "JUKT MICRONICS" WAS LISTED AS A SUPPLIER: Mike Daisey is an incredibly popular monologist, whose most recent one-man show--The Agony and the Ecstacy of Steve Jobs--dealt with both his love of Apple products and his visits to China to see where many Apple products are made and his claims of outrages perpetrated by Apple against its workers there. Daisey's monologue was heavily excerpted in and served as the basis for a very popular episode of This American Life earlier this year. After further fact-checking and review, TAL has issued a lengthy retraction/apology and will devote this week's entire episode to detailing the errors and explaining how they were misled. Interestingly, Daisey has issued a statement saying he "stand[s] by his work" despite admitting that he "uses a combination of fact, memoir and dramatic license" in it.
ETA: Both the audio stream and the transcript are now available, and man, even in Ira Glass' typically soothing voice, it's pretty damn brutal.
