Emanuelle in ... wait, what?

Fetchez la vache, Nation's Newspaper of Record:

An article on Thursday about Vladimir V. Putin’s recent opportunities to project his power misspelled the given name of the president of France. He is Emmanuel Macron, not Emanuelle.

Aside from the general can't-anybody-here-play-this-game-ness, my favorite part of the correction is the coy intrusion of Times style. Apparently we're supposed to know this Putin fella well enough that we don't need to be told which country he's projecting his power from, but we still need the "V" to distinguish him from Vladimir D. Putin or Vladimir "Babycakes" Putin or any of the other Putins who came to Casablanca for the waters.
