Your Turn: The Blurry Lines Dividing Theater & Journalism

Your Turn: The Blurry Lines Dividing Theater & Journalism

In the wake of a recent controversy at the public radio show "This American Life," we explore the blurry lines between performance art and journalism.

The public radio show "This American Life" this weekend admitted to significant errors in a popular piece documenting the manufacturing of Apple products in China. The piece in question was adapted from a one-man theater show about the topic starring Mike Daisey. We explore the blurry lines that divide performance art from journalism, and how the two are bleeding into each other in today's media environment.
