NY Times Corrects Article That Offends M.I.A.


M.I.A.
In an Editor's Note, the magazine included a statement that corrects the order of quotes which have been taken by columnist Lynn Hirschberg based on her interview with the singer.


New York Times bosses have issued a correction to a critique by columnist Lynn Hirschberg in a bid to end a public feud between the writer and hip-hop star M.I.A. The outspoken singer/songwriter blasted Hirschberg online, made her direct telephone line public and also took aim at the writer in a new song after taking offense to an unflattering profile the journalist had written about the "Paper Planes" hitmaker for the New York Times Magazine last month.

Hirschberg initially laughed off the singer's taunts, but now her editors have decided to step in, hoping to end the feud between the two women. In an Editor's Note contained in Thursday, June 3's newspaper, a statement makes it clear that quotes attributed to the singer/rapper by Hirschberg were out of context.

The statement reads, "The part that begins, 'The whole point of going to the Grammys,' up to the end of the quotation, actually came first. The part that begins, 'I wasn't trying to be like Bono,' and ends, 'Give war a chance,' came later in the same interview. The article should have made clear that the two quotations came from different parts of the interview."
