But user doesn't see 2016.4.16 date. He sees "3 years ago". IV does not support this format, it always displays the day, month and year.
This means that we do not show the same date as in the original article, we show another date in any case. I think in this case it is better to show the correct date obtained from the source code. This is better than having an absolutely wrong day and an absolutely wrong month that is not even in the original article.

- "3 years" is pretty ambiguous. It's not specific and does not necessarily mean exactly 3 years ago from today.
The date in this IV seems reasonable.

Yes, they have cached the date wrongly on the page, but it matters mostly what user sees on the page.
