McCain Writes Piece for Wrong Pravda

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) published an op-ed in Pravda taking aim at Russian President Vladimir Putin: "They punish dissent and imprison opponents. They rig your elections. They control your media."

But it was the wrong Pravda, CNN reports.

"The Pravda McCain had publically said he wanted to be published in is one of the oldest Russian newspapers, founded in 1912... Pravda.ru, the news outlet that actually published McCain's piece, is an electronic news website founded in 1999. Even though the website also bears the name Pravda, it is not connected to Pravda newspaper. The website has English and Russian editions and covers everything from politics to fashion and celebrities."
