Oops: McCain Published Op-Ed in Wrong Newspaper?

In fairness, they have the same name (via Politico):

Sen. John McCain got his wish when his op-ed against Russian President Vladimir Putin was published in Russia news outlet Pravda. The only problem — it may have been the wrong Pravda.

The Arizona Republican published his anti-Putin piece on Pravda.ru on Thursday, an English and Russian news website that was founded in 1999.

But McCain said he was hoping to publish in the Communist newspaper Pravda, meaning “truth” in Russian, which was founded in 1912. That publication, after being banned when the Soviet Union collapsed, was rekindled and is still circulated by today’s Russian Communist Party.

Pravda.ru and the paper are unrelated media outlets, except for the name.

McCain, not surprisingly, balked when the media suggested he accidentally published his op-ed in the “wrong” newspaper:

On Thursday, a spokesman for McCain said the senator submitted the op-ed to both publications and hoped both would run it. He denied Pravda.ru is the “wrong” Pravda.

I believe he submitted it to both. What I want to know is when his staff had that “oops” moment and sent it to the one he’d originally intended.

Suppose some staff flunky has gotten a verbal high colonic from Sen. Maverick for the mixup?

His letter could be run in any outlet on the planet and it would still reinforce his hypocrisy.

Pravda.ru is a hyped up News Maxy, tabloidy kind of thing.

It definitely isn’t the equal of the NYT if that’s what McCain was intending.
