What a fool. Something tells me he's going to have to cancel the national tour of his show now. He's going to be finished by this.
 
This American Life retracts its most popular show (podcast) ever: Mike Daisy's monologue and "reporting" on Apple's factories in China.

From the press release: "I'm not going to say that I didn't take a few shortcuts in my passion to be heard," Daisey tells Schmitz and Glass. "My mistake, the mistake I truly regret, is that I had it on your show as journalism, and it's not
journalism. It's theater."

No, Daisy's dangerous mistake #1: Thinking that shortcuts lead to the truth, not away from it.

Daisy's dangerous mistake #2: Thinking that if you don't call it journalism, it doesn't have to be true. Falso.

Daisy's suicidal mistake #3: Thinking that, once discovered, This American Life of all shows would let him get away with it. Wrong.
