Post CNN airs footage of Iraq sniper attacks

Heard this morning the Pentagon was so pissed off by the airing of this video that they were going to yank all embedded CNN reporters. Did CNN do the right thing or did they become the insurgency's propaganda or did they just want to scoop other news networks?

It's the media's job to show us the truth. What happened, where, to whom, by whom. That's what they did. They're doing their JOB.
