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."

"Apple, this is your problem to fix"


No it's not their problem but nothing Tony said justifies Apple exploiting the workers. If you're not part of the solution you're part of the problem and Apple (and other companies doing this) are not part of the solution.
