Are penguins considered dinosaurs

It’s commonly stated that modern birds are living dinosaurs and penguins are birds. So it would seem so. But based on recent penguin “missing link” find articles, they claim that penguins evolved after the dinosaurs were ‘wiped out’.

I realize that journalist aren’t scientist but still it made me wonder.
