Because NBC Says So!

Why is Iraq involved in a civil war, when the people of Iraq do not classify it as such? Because NBC says so, in a bit of their own Clear Politics:

Matt Lauer stated on the Today Show: "For months now the White House has rejected claims that the situation in Iraq has deteriorated into a civil war. And, for the most part, news organizations like NBC have hesitated to characterize it as such. But after careful consideration, NBC News has decided a change in terminology is warranted -- that the situation in Iraq with armed militarized factions fighting for their own political agendas -- can now be characterized as a civil war."
