Re: “Mike Daisey and the (re)Orient Express

Daisey consciously and recklessly exposed his Chinese translator to the "tender" mercies of the same Chinese government who persecuted and terrorized Chen Guangcheng. He gained her cooperation to help him enter the Foxcom factories under a fraudulent story, by assuring her that he would not disclose her role in the scam. Notwithstanding the notice in his show material that names may have been change, he used her real name and disclosed her role in his fraudulent activities in China. In fact the only time he sought to conceal her identity was when "This American Life"'s investigation threatened his notoriety and income. I would hope that the risks the translator took entitled her to a share of the income that accrued to Daisey and his business manager from this "theatrical" project. I don't expect that such arrangements will shield Daisy, his business manager, or the venues that continue to generate business income from this grossly reckless and negligent "project" from a recovery of damages sought by the translator or persons acting on her behalf for Daisey's irresponsible disclosure of her actual identity. Maybe Chen Guangcheng will be her attorney. Think of the narrative that would give rise to.
