Mailbag: Mailbag: CNET can't be trusted?

3:44 /

One Mailbag viewer says journalism degrees don't cut it. Later, hater!

[ Music ] ^M00:00:06 >>Molly Wood: Hey everybody, I'm Molly Wood, and welcome to the CNET mailbag. This is a show where you tell us what you think about what we do here at CNET. Now a couple of weeks ago we did a piece where we asked our employees to tell you what they studied so that they could get jobs here. Apparently, the answers did not inspire confidence in at least one viewer. SpencerF25 wrote in, I check out CNET almost every day for reviews. Now that I know most of your degrees are in subjects like English and Journalism, not in communications, computer science or anything related to what you review, I will have to find a different place to get advice. Thanks for the help in the past and farewell. Now, SpencerF25 do you think maybe you should think this through a little bit more cause what you are basically saying is you can't ever read the business section cause the people who write it aren't MBA's. Don't ever read the sports section, none of those people are professional athletes. And dude, you could never read the obits. Absolutely none of those writers are dead. C, among many other's, wrote in to let me know what was up with the playoff's reference from Balki's hater mail last week and I'll have you know that our cameraman, Charlie, knew it right off the bat. I would like to let you know that the reference to playoff's from Balki was a snippet from a oft-used clip of former Indianapolis Colts, coach Jim Mora, ranting about the deplorable state of the Colts at the time and the snowball's chance that they would have of making the playoffs. Here's an example >>Jim Mora: What's that? Playoffs? Don't talk about playoffs? You kiddin me? Playoffs? I just hope we can win a game. >>Molly Wood: Jared was not the only one to write in and ask, so does Dan Ackerman talk like a radio show host all the time? Let's find out. >>Dan Ackerman: Hello mother. It is I your son calling you from the out halls of CNET.com. So did you TiVo my latest attack of the show appearance? What to get, what to get, let's see. Ruffles have got ridges, starburst, who the hell eats those, and then I think we've got the M&M's, they've got peanuts. No dollar, OK. >>Hey, do you know if it's still raining? >>Dan Ackerman: Clear skies today, high around 55. Chance of showers on Wednesday but partly to mostly sunny the rest of the week. And now Mr. Sergio Mendes. [Music] >>Molly Wood: Yea, basically yes, yes he does. We also got a nice sounding invitation this week. Come join us all day Saturday in the video chat, no cam required, for our muscle bear cam party, hosted by, oh, actually I think that might be spam. We get a lot of that here but we also get a lot of party invites, so I get kind of confused. And finally, just a few comments from you, the viewers. Dep112362, good morning from Madison, Ohio, 50 miles east of Cleveland. Good morning to you. Next time though, latitude and longitude. A little lover mail for Natali Delconte this week, lock419 tell us, loaded video update is great, first time watching it. Natali Del Conte does an excellent job. CNETTV rules! Kbogoja5 [Sounds like] said very, very good. And finally Lars wants to know, why do you always laugh when asking keep the feedback coming? Is this some kind of Sigmund Fraud type of slip where you don't really want to keep the feedback coming? Maybe your eggo, alter ego and id are out of whack. Oh, Lars. I laugh because I know I'm such a glutton for punishment. So on that note, keep the feedback coming, and let go my eggo. Mailbag@cnet.com or send me a postcard 35 2nd street, San Francisco, CA 94105. See you next time. ^M00:03:44 [ Music ]
