This is worth reading. I worked with Fleishman, and I'm sure he found me an enormously frustrating and infuriating person to have to deal with. But he's a good guy, and he's smart and he works hard and conscientiously at whatever he does. When he says he saw this coming, it's not 20/20 hindsight; it's the real deal.
I, too, had all kinds of problems with Daisey's description of Amazon back in the day, but whenever I tried to express them, I got shot down hard, because my experience was regarded as not-representative.
Gawker is trying to crowdsource a general purpose takedown of Daisey's oeuvre, which seems like a worthwhile project.
What I'd like to see is a world in which blowhards are treated as blowhards: entertaining, if you like that sort of thing, but _not_ to be treated as a valid source.
