New York Times misidentified man Sen. John McCain called an 'agent of intolerance'

The New York Times misidentified the man Sen. John McCain called an "agent of intolerance":

Because of an editing error, an article last Sunday about Mitt Romney's commencement speech at Liberty University misstated, in some editions, the year of his last presidential run. It was 2008, not 2004. Also because of an editing error, the article misstated, in some editions, the surname of the evangelical leader whom Senator John McCain called an ''agent of intolerance.'' It is Pat Robertson, not Pat Roberts.
