So as I made my way out the door this morning, I caught the very beginning of NBC's Today Show, and to my surprise, I actually caught the Today Show reporting the news and telling the truth (who knew?)!
At the beginning of the Today Show, Matt Lauer announced that it is now NBC and MSNBC's policy to refer to the conflict in Iraq as a "civil war." NBC and MSNBC believe that the conditions on the ground in Iraq, fit their definition of a civil war.
Meanwhile, the Bush Administration (who has an adversion to anything resembling the truth) is continuing to resist the "civil war" label for Iraq. National Security Adviser Stephen Hadley says that Iraq is just in a "new phase." (I guess they believe that if you don't say it or talk about it, then it doesn't exist).
