CNET lost credibility when the site it ran, download.com (who for many years promised that the software they host is free of malware, trojans and other crap) started to use the same tricks other freeware companies use to install toolbars, malware, crappy anti-virus software and other crapware a last year.

CNET is the new Engadget: Bought & sold by their corporate masters, they only exist to sell you crap now.

BarkingUnicorn: Honest Bender: Well, I guess they can just go ahead and stop calling themselves a news outlet, then. Just an editorial soap box. I guess I should be upset or something. But, really, are there any actual news outlets anymore? Anyone who actually does investigative reporting? Anyone who isn't yellow?


That was one of the few times I blindly clicked on a link and would have rather seen the goatse or Lemon Party sites.

It's really sad that CBS was once home to Walter Cronkite and Edward R. Murrow.

In other news, CNET is still around. I don't believe I've visited that site in many years.
