What to believe?

I'm a big fan of This American Life. I didn't hear the Mike Daisey episode and I haven't listened to the TAL retraction of it that's all over the news right now.

But I just read this piece in Poynter that, in one sense, raises questions that could hold TAL accountable for its work, and in another (especially the last line), seems to come right up to the edge of accusing TAL of passing of fiction as fact.
