How about OCN produce the "Best of CES" now? I volunteer to go to Las Vegas next year for the show and be a judge, provided OCN pays my way. biggrin.gif

They'll probably switch to an independent company for future awards. Maybe TWIT if we're lucky.

Lets see how many more people can't read beyond the title like usual.

If CBS didn't get involved none of this would have happened, it wasn't like CNET was planning it from the get go.

I am SO pleased by this. Thank god for journalists being forced to do their actual jobs and not be bought out by other companies or even the government for that matter. God knows this is one of the biggest issues in politics today, very happy to see a step forward in the tech industry.

CNet was not that bad, but it is clear it's parent company has been the one killing it over the years..

As long as CBS is in charge, CNET's reputation will suffer. This little episode will forever tarnish their credibility as an unbiased review site. Even though it's not CNET's fault, CES made the right decision to go with someone else for the "Best of CES" awards. Shame on you CBS for throwing all those decent, hard working journalists reputation under the bus.

I think the lesson here is never ever to let your company be bought out by a bigger one because your reputation will go right to the crapper(assuming it was worth anything to begin with) See Blizzard -> Activision, Bioware ->EA, Wizards of the Coast -> Hasbro, Alienware -> Dell, and now CNET -> CBS.
