Like to point out that the name used in the URL and title of this article use the wrong name for Chelsea Manning. She has not gone by that name since last summer.

Yes, it's a retrospective post, reproducing a headline from one year ago. Chelsea Manning changed her name, but that doesn't retrospectively change all the headlines predating that namechange. If you were talking about Thailand before 1939, you'd call it Siam.

I believe you're looking for Winston Smith. You may remember him, the one whose job it was to re-write the headlines of the past to reflect only the present? I would like to point out that you can find him at MiniTru, and should you find yourself in that neighborhood again, you can look him up.
