‘This American Life’ pulls back on Apple factory story: Ira Glass, host of the Chicago Public Radio-produced program “This American Life,” has retracted a controversial story the weekly radio show aired in January about harsh working conditions at a plant in China that manufacturers iPhones and iPads for Apple Inc. In an email to Crain’s, Mr. Glass says the story “contained significant fabrications” and many of the story’s claims have since been disputed by the Chinese interpreter for Mike Daisey’s story. The show aired on WBEZ-FM on Jan. 6.
