CNET is not going to give an award or any other validation to a product which CBS is challenging as illegal, other networks believe to be illegal and one court has already found to violate the copyright act in its application. Beyond that, CNET will cover every other product and service on the planet.
CNET's product reviews policy states that its editors will not review any product or service that is currently involved in active litigation with CBS Corporation with respect to the legality of the product or service. The Dish Hopper and Aereo TV streaming service currently fall into that category.
I almost never understand the choices for the "Best of Show" awards, because the products tend to be kind of boring. The Hopper is no exception... but perhaps there's just something I'm missing.
Regardless, it's good to see CEA taking this so seriously, and I commend its decision.
Well, it's about time. CNET has been totally partisan for years; they have no business being allowed to rate other brands.
I could not have a higher opinion of CEA at the moment. I admire when organizations do the *right* thing, not the *profitable* thing.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
CNET has changed a hullofa lot over the years.
Nowadays it's a far cry from the CNET that I used to read diligently.
I have zero time for them now.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
That realneil is very , very true, as back in the day CNET was a good read, and of course I mean way back really. Now and again they will have something interesting I will read for some general details on something. I would never trust them for anything major though.
