“Civil War:” “If This Isn’t A Civil War, I Don’t Know What Is,” CNNer Says

The Los Angeles Times has been calling Iraq a “civil war” for several months. But that’s the only other major news organization using the term that this Associated Press story mentions.

AP editors “haven’t reached a definitive stance” on the issue. And “officials at both ABC News and CBS News said that they discuss the situation all the time, but that there’s no network policy to use the term civil war.”

CNN doesn’t have a network policy either, but on Monday correspondent Michael Ware said on the air, ‘if this isn’t a civil war, I don’t know what is,’” the story notes. FNC doesn’t intend to change its policy either, Variety adds.
