A couple of weeks ago I posted a link on Matt’s blog The Culture of the Arts World about Mike Daisey, the storyteller recently exposed as a profound and egregious liar. Matt’s done a fine write up on the story, and you should jump over to read it.
The links are important in this story to get the full value. Matt’s reposted the link to This American Life’s retraction and interrogation of Daisey. I’ve added another in comments that links to an article from someone who worked with Daisey to get his story before an audience. The thoroughgoing deceit of the man doesn’t really come home until you read this.
