Get wrong Times reprint for distribution (12)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

misinterpret

'get wrong' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'times reprint for distribution' is the wordplay.
'for distribution' indicates an anagram (I've seen this in other clues).
'times'+'reprint'='timesreprint'
'timesreprint' with letters rearranged gives 'MISINTERPRET'.

(Other definitions for misinterpret that I've seen before include "Explain wrongly" , "Fail to understand" , "Wrongly understand" , "Read wrongly" , "get wrong" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
