An article about the Iranian presidential election, published online earlier today, included this quotation from the father of Noushin Sobhani, a 31-year-old Iranian gynecologist:
“We hate America,” her father said, smiling. “I hope The New York Times building burns down.”
It's been changed. It now reads:
“We hate America,” her father said, smiling.
