Taliban tells CNN they aren't allowed to speak to the media

In this story from CNN, the Taliban are claiming that Pakistan is forbidding them to talk to the media. And I quote:

[The Taliban] said they "are not allowed by the Pakistani government to speak with radio, television or print either in press conferences or one-on-one interviews."

I'm confused-- they're talking to CNN, so how are they being banned from the media???

I also find it amusing that Pakistan's Foreign Ministry spokesman used the term "umpteenth".
