'I will not go silent' _ performer Mike Daisey hits back at critics of his Apple monologue
NEW YORK (AP) ' A performer says he's not slinking away after he was forced to admit that he made up parts of his one-man show that looked at working conditions in Chinese factories where iPads and iPhones are assembled.
Mike Daisey writes in a new blog posting Monday: "I want you all to know that I will not go silent." His post follows a weekend in which he was exposed as mixing fiction and fact and had to edit his monologue.
While acknowledging that parts of "The Agony and the Ecstasy of Steve Jobs" are made up, Daisey stands by his critique of the way Apple products are manufactured in China.
Writes Daisey: "If you think this story is bigger than that story, something is wrong with your priorities."
