The tangled web of Apple, Foxconn and Mike Daisey
Following a series of explosive reports, Apple was scrutinized for the working conditions at Foxconn -- the factory where iPhones and iPads are made. The media attention was so persistent that Apple CEO Tim Cook sent a memo to employees to day the company cares about all of its employees.
In a bizarre twist to the tale, it was discovered that one of the original reports of conditions at Foxconn was partially fabricated by American monologist Mike Daisey. His report was featured on "This American Life," but was later retracted.
Apple and Foxconn have since agreed to a timeline of changes that are planned at the factories.
