New York Times to M.I.A.: "Sorry we made you sound a bit mental"

After being widely slammed for a New York Times interview where she appeared to advocate war as a solution for life's problems, controversial (read: nutty) Sri Lankan-British rapper M.I.A. went on the, well, warpath, posting the interviewer's phone number on Twitter and writing a song slagging her off.

It turns out M.I.A., the daughter of a Tamil Tiger leader, wasn't being completely unreasonable. The The New York Times has added a correction, of sorts, to the article.

Except the correction isn't that they actually said anything that wasn't true, or misquoted her. Apparently some of the stupid stuff M.I.A. said, she said in a different order to the way it's presented in the article! I know, shocking, right?
