They did a 'report' on Steve Jobs and Apple. Because the focus was big name and big money, they've been forced to issue a retraction but the reality is that most broadcasts of This American Life contain significant errors.
Ira's a hero to the nerdy class. Mainly because he's a nerd himself. He's not a journalist or a reporter. He's a talker. And he talks and talks and talks. Apparently forgetting that he is not the story.
He's made himself the story but that does little to improve the quality of his show. Someday soon, This American Life will be pulled from the airwaves and I will dance a happy jig.
Closing with C.I.'s "Iraq snapshot:"
