I am disappointed too. CNET needs to make money, but CBS trumping and controller editorial decisions, which really amounted to censorship despite belated-disclosure, is disappointing.
I read on another website that CBS will not allow CNET to give awards or even review the Dish hopper. If this is true I will have lost my over 15 years of respect for CNET and will no longer trust ANY of it's reviews of any product. I will still look to see what user say but I will not be able to trust what any CNET editors or any employee of CNET has to say about any technology.
