Why Journalists Aren’t Reporting the Real Story about Apple and Foxconn (TCTV)

Why haven’t American technology journalists reported the truth about the working conditions at the Foxconn factory in Shenzhen, China – a 430,000 person factory that manufactures around 50% of all the personal communications devices used in America? Why aren’t they doing their job?

According to the monologist Mike Daisey, it’s not only journalists who have missed the real story about the inhumane working conditions at Foxconn. Daisey says that we – Apple employers, investors and users like myself – have all committed the “terrible sin†of evading our “responsibilities.” We all – journalists and Apple fanboys alike – need to “wake up†and “open our eyesâ€, Daisey says, to the “dehumanizing†consequences of an economy in which all our manufacturing is outsourced to companies like Foxconn.

See the first part of the Keen On… interview with Daisey on Apple’s “terrible sin†in outsourcing its manufacturing to Foxconn.
