Mailbag: The lovers and the hatersFor the Thanksgiving week, we thought we'd give thanks to the folks who love us...and laugh at the ones who hate us.
[ Music ] ^M00:00:05 >> Molly Wood: Hey, everyone, I am Molly wood and welcome to the CNET mailbag. Now, this week is the Thanksgiving holiday so we thought may be we do like a special show where we spot light all the user mail that gives thanks for the work we do here at CNET. But then we thought, that's kind of boring and self-serving. So, instead we are going to do a more fair and balanced show. You love us, you love us not. Let's start with the hater mail. Brian Tong has been getting tons of lover mail and he's finally got his first hater mail. Here it goes, Rajeev writes, 'Please get rid of Brian Tong, he is killing CNET TV and he's extremely lame.' Now, we even got this voice mail about him, "I really hope you guys get rid of Brian Tong. I find him very annoying and flamboyant, just really disturbing." Too flamboyant? I don't even know what you mean. >> It's time for Price Pipe baby. ^M00:00:51 [ Music ] ^M00:00:59 >> Molly Wood: No, now come on don't get bogged down Brian. You know you've arrived when people start hating you. Plus, you should hear what they say about me. "Please replace Molly Wood, she's terrible. For the greater good of otherwise great programming get rid of her. Her attempted chatty banter jokes in general on-air presence are annoying. Just because she has a management title doesn't mean she deserves the head position in front of the camera, yuck! An on-air personality should have well, er...personality." See, I am totally big time. Now as for CNET and our reviews team B.K. Pruitt says, "I am so tired of CNET gushing over Apple products. CNET has lost all objectivity. On CNET TV 'I hate it.' First I've got to suffer through a stupid commercial stuck and I can read a whole lot faster than you can run your movie." And one guy just wrote in to say "it sucks!" I know, right, out. We need a serious dose of Lover Mail. >> Lover Mail. >> About CNET TV, Zatshee says "very good job, I think the best on the net. Success." And Ivan says "Hey Molly, here's an idea. You should take over CNET and like be in all of the CNET TV shows and every single review video." Umm. >> Welcome to CNET Top 5. Every time we leave, we count down another hot CNET list I am Molly Wood. And finally one of my favorite features is web search history. >> Today we have 2 petit entries into the MP3 market. >> Here it is, the all new Mini, looks almost just like the old Mini, but there are a lot of differences. Let's check it out. >> Molly Wood: Oh and he also says PS: you are pretty and I love you. And finally Michael wants to know "how do you deal with all that Hater Mail that comes in everyday, trying to put you down. I would get so mad at those people. Any ways, no matter what they say you do a good job on CNET. Keep up the great work." Thank you, Michael. We actually deal with all the Hater Mail because there is almost always a nice e-mail like that from a guy like you. And for that we are very thankful. Okay, that's it for this week's edition of the CNET Mail Bag.
