The bolded answers your own question on why this has become a major story. So we agree.Persoanlly I don't see this as the major story it has become. I am not all that concerned about whether DISH was "robbed'. I am concerned though about the objectivity of CNET. it seems that their relationship with their corporate owner is affecting their ability to carry out the role they have at CES and raises questions about the objectivity of their news coverage and reviews.
