said by IM1811:I agree that Consumer Reports is not sketchy. However, I think it's unfortunate that CR chose to sully its well-deserved good reputation by taking over consumerist.com from Gawker Media.
I don't know about Consumerist being 'sketchy'. They are owned by Consumer Reports, who have a subscription base of over 7 million readers, and have been in business since 1936.
It's a lousy website and its editors are extremely self-righteous and arrogant. Even minor, probably accidental, infractions are turned into breathless scandals. I bet I could report that I was overcharged two cents by, say, Best Buy, and consumerist would turn it into "Den of Thieves!"
