Artful Retraction

You make a mistake, you get duped. Apologise quickly and wholeheartedly, and move on. Nice work from This American Life in retracting a a recent Apple-related story (one I’d enjoyed). Press release on Friday, hours before the show broadcast, full admission, no excuses. The tone of the show was great; the lying Mike Daisey didn’t come out of it too good, but I had a sliver of sympathy for him. A fine example of how to make good a bad situation.
