From The "You're Just Figuring This Out?" Dept. That CBS would influence its journalists comes as no surprise to anybody that's been watching what's happened to American journalism over the last few decades. This is just the latest, and most blatant, in a long line, a nearly continuous line, of compromises in journalistic integrity. In fact: The word "journalism" has become so tainted in American media so as to be a running joke.
I have an ex-girlfriend that was a Journalism major and was once a journalist. She got out of it years and years ago, when she saw where it was headed. She is so embarrassed by what has become of the field she once loved that she tends to avoid mentioning it to people.
Journalists such as Edward R. Murrow and Walter Cronkite must be spinning in their graves

Re: From The "You're Just Figuring This Out?" Dept. The MSM has become a fifth column.
And "Uncle Walter" wouldn't be so uncomfortable as you might think.
I don't care what DHS says, never bring scissors to a gunfight.
| || It depends. What may hurt CNET more is a damaged relationship with tech companies. You can believe the news of CNET getting booted from CES has made the rounds in these companies. Now, would these companies be as eager to work with CNET, knowing that, on a whim, CBS can erase anything that CNET has to say about them? Under these circumstances, if you work at one of these companies, and you have missed calls from a CNET reporter and a reporter from a site with not so tarnished a reputation, whose call will you return first?|
What you may end up with is a degradation of CNET's relationship with the manufacturers, which will lead to a degradation in the quality of what goes on their site. Sooner or later, that will catch up with them.

... it would be nice to have HW that keeps the sound levels ALL at the SAME levels. I still hate it when I'm watching a show and it cuts to an ad and the sound comes blaring out of the speakers during the ad.
The FCC is charged with enforcing this law, so file a complaint if you are experiencing this.
