I have difficult news. We’ve learned that Mike Daisey’s story about Apple in China – which we broadcast in January – contained significant fabrications. We’re retracting the story because we canâ€™t vouch for its truth. This is not a story we commissioned. It was an excerpt of Mike Daisey’s acclaimed one-man show « The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs, » in which he talks about visiting a factory in China that makes iPhones and other Apple products.
â€” Retracting « Mr. Daisey and the Apple Factory », This American Life. Ouch. L’un des plus cÃ©lÃ¨bres podcasts amÃ©ricains se voit obliger de retirer son Ã©pisode le plus tÃ©lÃ©chargÃ© parce que l’intervenant principal a inventÃ© des Ã©lÃ©ments du reportage. Le mea culpa est en tous cas tout Ã leur honneur.
