In the News "This American Life has retracted an episode that focused on working conditions inside a Foxconn iPad factory, calling the source material 'partially fabricated'. The episode - the most popular in TAL history with nearly a million streams - was partially based on the work of artist Mike Daisey, who apparently lied to fact-checkers about his experiences visiting Foxconn's facility. Some of the lies were discovered during an interview with Daisey's Chinese translator, who disputed the facts presented in his show and on the air."

It's very easy to say that since Apple products are manufactured at that location, "Apple, this is your problem to fix". Hats off to people like Tony Swash who see these kinds of problems in their true context and don't just shoot from the hip hoping they hit something.
