By definition, a "naked put" is a put option where the option writer does NOT have a position in the underlying asset. This investment strategy does have such a position in the underlying, WTW.

A put is considered 'naked' if you do not already have a short position in the shares.

A covered put would be one where the exercise of the puts would close out your short position.

The author is correct in his terminology.
