Craving NYC: The censored CNET videos

Inside the darkest corner of the underbelly of CNET reviewers' shameful past. Censored for decency's sake.

Our esteemed CNET reviewers are always making those "First Look" videos, in which they talk about the latest smart phone or LCD flat-screen TV or overpriced home theater system. Well, here's a look at one of the First Looks that the CNET overlords deemed unworthy of a second look. It's somewhat shocking, really. I had no idea that our seemingly mild-mannered reviewers could stomach that sort of thing. If you don't believe me, I guess you'll just have to watch it.

Disclaimer: This is a work of fiction. We here at Crave would like you to know that Jeff Bakalar is not really anywhere near as sketchy as this video makes him seem.
