CBS Losing Journalistic Credibility

So, CBS forces CNET to withdraw a fancy new DVR device by Dish Network from its CES "Best in Show" awards because they are involved in a lawsuit over its ability to automatically skip commercials. It's called "The Hopper".

Here is CBS's statement-

CBS has nothing but the highest regard for the editors and writers at CNET, and has managed that business with respect as part of its CBS Interactive division since it was acquired in 2008. This has been an isolated and unique incident in which a product that has been challenged as illegal, was removed from consideration for an award. The product in question is not only the subject of a lawsuit between Dish and CBS, but between Dish and nearly every other major media company as well. CBS has been consistent on this situation from the beginning, and, in terms of covering actual news, CNET maintains 100% editorial independence, and always will. We look forward to the site building on its reputation of good journalism in the years to come.

Hear that Whooshing sound? It's all journalistic credibility CBS had leaving the room.
