NBC and MSNBC decided over the weekend “after careful thought” that the correct terminology for the situation in Iraq is ‘Civil War.’
“Several analysts said NBC’s decision was important as the administration would face more pressure to pull U.S. troops out of Iraq if the U.S. public comes to view the conflict as a civil war.” – Reuters Story
So we can thank NBC (80% owned by General Electric and 20% owned by Vivendi who also own Telemundo and Universal Pictures) for bringing some sense of reality to the MSM public discourse.
One has to ask: Why would GE turn on the Neoconservative White House/Pentagon? I thought they had the same goals.
In a related story, Kofi Annan said today that Iraq is “almost there,” referring to civil war.
We have known that Iraq has fallen into civil war for some time now. We knew they were very likely to since shortly after the US invaded. It’s about time someone in the MSM caught up with us.
