United Press International (or UPI) is a major news agency.

The United Press Associations wire service was founded in 1907 by newspaper publisher E.W. Scripps[?].

In 1959 United Press merged with International News Service to become United Press International.

UPI was acquired by the Washington Times in 2000. UPI's chief correspondent, Helen Thomas[?], resigned upon its acquisition, complaining about the Times's links to the Unification Church.

According to the dpa and afp news stored for instance at http://cisar.org/000516d.htm UPI was acquired by News World Communications, which includes The Washington Times newspaper, in 2000.
