Update: UPI.com has corrected their editorial mistake

UPI.com has edited the original article referenced in this blog post. Thank you UPI.com

The following text appeared in the original article posted on UPI.com, dated December 1, 2009:

During World War I, members of the Armenian community were forced on a SUPPOSED death march to Syria and Iraq by the Ottoman regime.

We must remain vigilant when we see inaccuracies in the press (from respected news organizations). It is our responsibility as the children and grandchildren of Armenian Genocide victims to use irresponsible reporting as learning opportunities.

Thank you to everyone who contacted UPI.com.
