This is a Twitter conversation that takes place between This American Life’s Ira Glass and Mike Daisey, immediately after Ira Glass has discovered all of the errors in fact checking with Daisey’s story. Sorry it is not all Twittered-Out and cool… I am technology challenged.

The Story “@immaDAISEY and The Apple Factory” is fabricated. We apologize to our viewers, a Retraction will be published shortly #disappointment
Mike Daisey @immaDAISEY 2:39pm
Fabricated?!!! Excuse me @LookatThatGlass – I was there. I experienced it. It was so moving. So wrong. #straightfromthesource
Ira Glass @LookatThatGlass 2:45pm
Apparently these things you “experienced” didn’t even happen. We have sources. You are a liar – #straightfromaliar #winning
Mike Daisey @immaDAISEY 2:47pm
Just because something is untrue doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. Just because something was a lie, doesn’t mean it isn’t true. @LookatThatGlass
Ira Glass @LookatThatGlass 2:58pm
Actually @immaDAISEY, that is the DEFINITION of a LIE – something that is NOT true. #youreacrazy and a #liar
Mike Daisey @immaDAISEY 2:59pm
I will still stand behind my words! I will still perform this story! You cannot say that what happens over there is a lie!

@immaDAISEY no more responses? #caught
@immaDAISEY I will take that as a no. #winning
