Feet to the Fire: John MacArthur

In John MacArthus's "Everybody wants to be a Versailles," one of the main thing he pointed out was why CNN was the only network that was allowed to stay in Baghdad during the first Gulf War. He explained the reason for this is because had a business deal with Saddam Hussein, were they stated "You let us stay and we'll guarantee that what you say makes it to the outside world. I also get to report what I see, up to a point we'll negotiate that later." CNN made this deal was to run a four-line cable all the way from Baghdad to Jordan. I think this was a great idea because obviously they will be the first one to get the message direct and to broadcast to the world.

It was a major coup for CNN and it made them the key news network in the first Gulf War. But that is history. CNN no longer has that edge over the competition.
