In addition, CBS is not allowing CNET to review Dish products going forward until further notice. Needless to say, this is creating quite the controversy amongst journalists that cover the consumer electronics beat.
However, to CNET's credit, Editor-in-Chief of CNET Reviews, Lindsey Turrentine, does discuss, in a post, the CBS directive and the resulting internal dilemma for CNET's writers. The tech site also still includes its initial coverage of the Dish Hopper/Sling product in an onsite report, and the product is listed in its featured product offerings.
Upon learning of the situation, Dish has posted an official response. It will be interesting to see how this controversy will affect CNET's tech coverage going forward in similar situations that may conflict with CBS interests.
