Not strictly true.

"Traditionally, the Nile has been considered the longer river, but recent information might point towards the Amazon possibly being the longer one of the two rivers. Differences in the recorded length of the Amazon mainly depend on whether or not it is valid to take a course south of the Ilha de Marajó at the Amazon's mouth."

It'd make more sense to put the 'traditional' answer as the correct one regardless, seems more people would get it that way.
