I'm still not thrilled with newspaper polls.  :)

UPI was purchased in May 2000 by the Unification Church's media corporation, News World Communications, which, at the time, also owned the Washington Times and newspapers in South Korea, Japan, and South America. The next day, UPI's White House correspondent, Helen Thomas, resigned her position, after working for UPI 57 years.

In 2007 as part of a restructuring to keep UPI in business and profitable, management cut 11 staff from its Washington D.C. office and no longer has a reporter in the White House press corps or a bureau covering the United Nations. UPI spokespersons and press releases said the company would be focusing instead on expanding operations in the Middle East, Central Asia and Africa, and reporting on security threats, intelligence and energy issues. In 2008, UPI began UPIU, a journalism mentoring platform for students and journalism schools, that allows recent college graduates to post their work on the site, but does not pay for stories.

As of March 2011, the UPI.com website reports that the organization is headquartered in Washington, D.C., with other addresses in Seoul, South Korea; Beirut, Lebanon; Tokyo, Japan; Santiago, Chile; and Hong Kong, China.
