My bad - they still exist (in a much smaller way):

1999 UPI sold its broadcast client list to the AP.
UPI focuses on smaller information market niches, no longer services major media organizations.
UPI was purchased by News World Communications in 2000, (a news media company founded by the Unification Church).

No problem...I'm old enough to well remember when the dateline was simply "UP". That was before they got the "I" from the Hearst new service, "INS". :-)
