April 22, 2015

Here are some of the news stories from around the world:

Armenian Genocide “Battle Over History” story to air on CBS 60 Minutes Sunday February 28th

February 27, 2010

[Ed Note (February 28, 2010):  See the program that aired on CBS 60 Minutes here]

The Diocese of the Armenian Church wishes to alert the public that the long-running CBS news program 60 Minutes will air a segment on the Armenian Genocide during its broadcast of Sunday, February 28, at 7 p.m. (EST). (The scheduling information comes via the official website of CBS News,; please consult your local listings for broadcast times.)

The segment will feature an interview with Professor Peter Balakian, author of Black Dog of Fate and The Burning Tigris, and co-translator/editor of Armenian Golgotha. Reporting the story is senior correspondent Bob Simon, whose recent 60 Minutes work includes a segment on the Greek Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople.

A description of the Armenian Genocide segment, posted on the CBS News website, reads:

“The Armenians call it their holocaust – the 1915 forced deportation and massacre of more than a million Armenians by the Turks. But the Turks and our own government have refused to call it genocide.”
