We’ve Lost Matt Lauer

NBC Today Show host Matt Lauer has declared that there is a Civil War in Iraq:

On the Today Show, Matt Lauer said: “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.”

Legendary radio disc-jockey Don Imus calls Lauer and others at NBC “Nitwits”:

This morning on radio and MSNBC, responding to NBC’s decision to characterize Iraq as a “civil war,” Don Imus said:

“He and Brian Williams and all those other nitwits and Griffin, they all sit around and they make this command decision, and Zucker and all of them, and maybe bring ol’ Wright in there?”

More: “Do these nitwits at NBC News think this is going to have the impact of when Walter Cronkite came back in Vietnam and said we can’t win, and Lyndon Johnson famously said ‘well if we’ve lost Walter Cronkite, we’ve lost the country?'”
