Rivals criticize methods of war reporting

This article is basically about how cnn gained it access to war zone pictures and it has upset many other domestic companies because they are not able to get the same access CNN has. According to the text, "CNN was the only news network the iraqi government permitted to repot live from baghdad." The clearly gave CNN an atvantage over the other networks because they were able to get footage others just could not get. According to CNN, "it has traditionally said its biggest advantage is the network of foregn affiliates it has built sine it was created in 1980". this to me shows that CNN has created relationship with people who can grant them access to good stories. According to Eason jordan who is the cheif news executive at CNN , CNN plays to win, but we pay by the rules". this to me means that cnn is not doing anything to put their network in trouble.
