The New York Times has no affiliation with terrorists, but it certainly knows a thing or two about politics... certainly more than sensationalist caricature of a firecracker MIA. Yesterday they issued a statement about some misquotes, a little more gracefully than MIA and her response to the situation.
"While M.I.A. did make those remarks, she did not make the entire statement at the same point in the interview, or in the order in which it was presented. ... The article should have made clear that the two quotations came from different parts of the interview."
