It’s been a busy news day, no doubt about that. Mistakes can happen and then corrections get issued — no one is perfect. But, in a hilarious, almost too correct for comfort moment, Wall Street Journal issued a Thursday correction that has the internet collectively laughing out loud.
Here is a screenshot of the correction, via David Gura’s Twitter:
The correction was issued by the WSJ for an error in a previous article published regarding Trump’s cancellation of his planned meeting with Russian President, Vladimir Putin.
Wall Street Journal in its correction said:
‘Vladimir Putin is president of Russia. An editing mistake misidentified Mr. Putin in an earlier version of this article. (Nov. 29)’

Many internet users insisted in their comments that the Wall Street Journal actually has it right and should not be offering apologies or corrections. Other users joked and stated that a citation or source of the information is needed. One user said, “we all know that Donald plans to take Putin’s name,” while another user jokingly asked comedian Kathy Griffin if she was behind the error.

Then in 2016, Mr Trump claimed he didn’t even know who the Russian leader was. As the pair prepare for their first official meeting in Helsinki, take a look at the best bits of their ‘bromance”
