The Streisand effect strikes again. Now people who don't even read CNET know that Dish Network's hopper was going to with the best in show award.

"OK, I know it hasn't worked out the past 7,289,457 times...but if we act like an autonomous corporate bully and completely overreact to a relatively minor problem THIS TIME, I'm sure it will work out well for us."

Pretty much. Reminds me of the Apple vs. Samsung lawsuits... I'm honestly not sure Samsung would've received as much attention for their products, had Apple not made them so public.

All Cnet has ever done is cheerlead for their advertisers.

This. I have no idea why it's become the most-trafficked tech news site. The reviewers (Katzmaier in particular) are awful.

If you want the written equivalent of fellatio for advertisers, check out cnet... if you want tech news, try arstechnica,,  It got bought by Conde Nast, a few years back, but it's still good news, and it's still critical of products that suck.

Ended up with Cnet login as I'd previously joined download.com.

This is how you quit. Worked for me. They even emailed me to say they'd passed on my reason.

I'm sure the reason was that their bosses at CBS value money over journalistic integrity.

/If the Dish DVR did win that award originally, CBS will be paying a lot more to Dish than the other way around.

Not surprising after what CBS did to 60 Minutes for their stories on tobacco.
