The statement "his fable led the New York Times and other news outlets to investigate the matter" is not true.
"In fact, the New York Times has been reporting on Foxconn since 2006; and in 2010, the newspaper published more than a dozen stories addressing a rash of suicides at the Foxconn factory, which manufactures Sony and Dell products in addition to ubiquitous Apple devices like the iPhone and iPad."
Good post, thoughtful comments. This is why I'm tuned to ETV radio in the morning. ETV has been doing this for years in a program called Spoleto Today, hosted by a former Spoleto Festival general manager, Marc Overton. Most of the people mentioned in your article have appeared on the program, usually before they performed. And the great thing is that these conversations reach the whole state, so everyone can participate. I'm not shilling for the radio (and I almost never watch ETV television) but this is one thing they do right when Spoleto is in town.
Everyone should also go see "Perfectly Normel People" at the Footlight Theater!!!
