Euronews has reacted to Votewatch/Parlorama confusion

Some days ago I reported on the confusion between Votewatch.eu and Parlorama.eu in an Euronews report.

The old version (at the moment still available in the video and in the Google cache) starts like this, mixing Votewatch.eu and Parlorama.eu into one story on Votewatch.eu:
"Some praise it on transparency grounds while others say it misrepresents them… Pressure from various members of the European Parliament in full campaign for the elections in June got the website closed.

VoteWatch.eu tells how much they showed up for work. It gives their public attendance records over five years, and says how they voted. The site hopes to be back online imminently. [...]
"
The updated version (so far at least the text) makes a clear distinction between both websites, thus correcting the mistake.
