Truth and Consequences: On Mike Daisey

Last weekend Chris Hayes returned to Mike Daisey's controversial account of working conditions in Apple plants in China. At its best, said Hayes, Daisey's work forced us into a posture of empathy, prompting the question: What is our moral responsibility to those at the other end of the supply chain? "It's actually this reason that I find the distortions in Daisey's work maddening," said Hayes. "It undercuts his own empathic project."
