I appreciate John Moe's honesty about his envy of Mike Daisey's success. I'll bet he's no longer quite as envious now that Daisey's embellishment of the truth has been revealed. Mike Daisey's theatre piece about Foxconn was mesmerizing. So I was extremely disappointed to hear that he misled his audience. Now, he seems to be trying to rationalize it in much the same way that James Frey did about A Million Little Pieces. I heard Daisey interviewed on NPR a couple of weeks ago. He had a chance to mention his fabrications, but he didn't. There's nothing to envy there. I just hope that Daisey's distortions don't take the spotlight off the human rights abuses in China's factories that are real.
