Line of the Day (and not in a good way)

“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.”

The above is from Mike Daisey, as quoted by Rob Schmitz of Marketplace. Apparently, Schmitz thought Daisey's report a while back on Apple's factory in China sounded sketchy, so he did some checking, and then, with Ira Glass in tow, confronted Daisey.

This American Life will be running an entire show "to detail the errors" in the original show. There's also a blog post from Ira Glass on this.

Sad day.
