Here’s more fallout (and good reads) from the Mike Daisey debacle.

The New York Times:
“There is nothing in the journalism playbook to prevent a determined liar from getting one over now and again. It is partly because seekers of truth expect the same from others.”

The Atlantic:
“By lying, Daisey undermined the cause he purported to advance. That’s the real scandal.”

 Good:
“An exaggeration, oversimplification, or lie is not a persuasion tool; it’s a form of coercion.”

TechCrunch:
“To borrow his own phrase, he subordinated the truth of what he actually saw to the larger story that he wanted to tell.”

ReadWriteWeb:
“To me, my veracity is a non-renewable resource: once it is gone, you the reader aren’t coming back.”
