Submission + - CNET parent organization blocks review and award to Dish over legal dispute (cnn.com)

Coldeagle writes: It looks as if CNET's parent company, CBS, has laid down the law:

Just one day after CNet named the Dish "Hopper," a new TV recording system that's drawing rave reviews in the tech press, to an awards shortlist, the site's parent company stepped in and nixed the accolade. Because of a legal battle between CBS and Dish over the Hopper's ad-skipping technology, CBS laid down a ban: CNet won't be allowed to even review Dish products, much less give them awards.

Got to love modern day freedom of the press!
