Kalla ett folkmord ett folkmord

New York Times har ändrat sin policy:
"The New York Times has lifted its long-standing policy against the use of the term "Armenian Genocide," reported the Armenian National Committee (ANC) of New York.

According to a news release by the International Association of Genocide Scholars, The New York Times revised guideline for journalists states that 'after careful study of scholarly definitions of 'genocide,' we have decided to accept the term in references to the Turks' mass destruction of Armenians in and around 1915.' The policy goes on to note that 'the expression 'Armenian genocide' may be used freely and should not be qualified with phrasing like 'what Armenians call,' etc.'

The New York Times guidelines continue, noting that, "by most historical accounts, the Ottoman empire killed more than one million Armenians in a campaign of death and mass deportation aimed at eliminating the Armenian population throughout what is now Turkey." Finally it advises journalists that 'while we may of course report Turkish denials on those occasions when they are relevant, we should not couple them with the historians' findings, as if they had equal weight.'
