Apple firestorm leads artist to change his show
Performer Mike Daisey scrubs his monologue about Apple and sticks to the facts after criticism
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' Mike Daisey, the performer who admitted to lying in parts of his monologue about Apple products being made in Chinese sweatshops, has edited the work and added a prologue explaining the controversy.

Oskar Eustis, artistic director of The Public Theater, where the monologue is being performed, said Saturday that Daisey has added the disclaimer at the beginning and "eliminated anything he doesn't feel he can stand behind."

Daisey admitted Friday to taking shortcuts in crafting an often harrowing tale about Apple operations in China after the veracity of his one-man theatrical show was challenged by a public radio program that had based a broadcast on his work.
