Bounds of Journalism

Today's edition of Slate features an article about the decision to retract a story from the radio program This American Life, which is hosted by Ira Glass. The story in question is about working conditions at Apple in China.

The story is not directly related to the Kony 2012 discussion, but it is worth reading and listening, as a reminder that work for human rights may involve artistic license, but it also requires utmost integrity. It also requires an ability to admit -- a Ira Glass and his staff have done -- when we have been mistaken.
