There’s really not much to say here, except this correction is fantastic.

You don’t need to be well-versed in international politics to know no one in this piece is going to use Pimpin4Paradise786 as his Snapchat handle. You’d have to think whoever edited the story faced more than just the a stern talking to after it was published.
