The New York Times: Events of 1915 were not a "massacre", it was genocide

PanARMENIAN.Net - By the decision of The New York Times' editorial council in 2004, events of 1915 fall under the definition of "genocide" and when publishing articles over this subject the editorial staff will always use the word "genocide". A headline on April 5 about a planned vote in Congress over the Armenian Genocide Resolution, the widespread killing of Armenians by the Ottoman Turkish government early in the 20th century incorrectly described the killings, in which 1.5 million Armenians died. The editorial of the Newspaper has made clear it was genocide, not a "massacre." The same definition concerns a March 29 article titled "Armenian Genocide Resolution has infuriated Turkey", where the Armenian Genocide of 1915 was described as "massacre".
