      Mike Daisey: Liar.

      Yep. I was thinking of this shot all week while this Apple thing developed. Not tremendously surprising as this whole storytelling clan seems to have an ethic of adding narrative fictions to their stories with a sort of 'truthiness' as their guide. Daisey should never have claimed that work to be of a journalistic quality.

      Even if he never went on the radio, I think it is unethical to present his story on stage without a disclaimer. All the powerful, emotional moments -- all of shocking bits that brought forth a moral outrage, that made you say "things over there are worse than I imagined!" -- he presents them as eyewitness fact. But they were all made up.

      I agree, my point being that all of the presenters in this 'storytelling' genre (and the others in the event I was taking pictures at) work along the lines of this blended experience/fiction.

      Thanks for giving me a place to vent. I find myself really angry at Daisey ... perhaps irrationally so.
