Date In Search Results

We have discussed whether one should include the date of you article or not before. If you decided that trying to trick Google was the right way to make your article or blog post look more recent that is a bad idea:
Often you will see dates in the search results snippets when blog or news related content shows up in the organic Google search results. Did you know you can lose the ability to show those date bylines if you try to trick Google by faking the date to make it look more recent that the actual date/time it was published?...

...Google's Gary Illyes said at State of Search that these dates are good for search, that they make it more useful for searchers when they are looking for content. So if you abuse the date and fake it, Google can take away the ability for a site to show it...

Why does one need to fake that date? If I understand correctly, that date reflects when the content was most recently updated. Some bare minimum update of the content should update the date counter anyway. No need to fake or fool anyone.

Many times I look for information on a specific date and the same google changes the date. Has anyone managed to correct this?

You do realize that Google knows when your site was updated?
