World Cup 2010: Dunga takes on Brazilian press

This has been a very unusual World Cup for Brazilian journalists.
As at previous tournaments, Brazil has one of the largest press packs - about 700 in total. But unlike during other World Cups, the media coverage has grown into a story of its own.
Much of it has to do with coach Dunga's new approach towards journalists.
The Brazilian press is used to having almost total access to managers and stars of the team - but Dunga, a fierce critic of the media, has made radical changes.
Players have been told not to give exclusive interviews and he has closed access to most of Brazil's training sessions. Both moves are unprecedented in Brazilian World Cup history.
Four years ago in Germany, journalists were granted access to players every day, with interviews after each training session.
Ronaldo and Roberto Carlos were even interviewed live by national broadcaster Globo TV at 0200 in Germany, so that they could be on the network's prime-time news programme back home.
After Brazil got knocked out of the tournament, there was much criticism of the effect the 24-hour news cycle had on the team.
In Dunga's first meeting with journalists after arriving in South Africa, press officer Rodrigo Paiva made an appeal for journalists to avoid a "Big Brother" approach towards the team.
"Do we all really need cameras pointing from the roof of the building towards player's windows for 24 hours every day?" he asked.

Creative writing
Journalists have had to adapt to a new routine of press conferences with only two players put up per day, closed training sessions and no more exclusive interviews.
About the closed training sessions, he said: "Don't you guys complain about the player's [lack of] creativity? Now it's time for you to be creative and create something to write about."

'New fantasies'
Inevitably, journalists have been trying to get around Dunga's new rules. Even during closed training, cameras have snapped long-distance images of the players.
This has led to misinformation, including speculation that substitute Josue - pictured training in a first-team shirt - was set for a recall against Ivory Coast in place of injury doubt Gilberto Silva.
