The Verge Hires Writer Who Quit CNET in Protest - NYTimes.com: "Mr. Sandoval announced his resignation via Twitter on Jan. 14, less than an hour after The Verge published its report. CBS sought to portray its involvement as a one-time incident. In a recent statement, the company said: “CNET is not going to give an award or any other validation to a product which CBS is challenging as illegal, other networks believe to be illegal and one court has already found to violate the copyright act in its application. Beyond that, CNET will cover every other product and service on the planet.” Last week, the organizer of the Consumer Electronics Show cut its ties with CNET and reinstated the Hopper as the winner of the Best in Show award."
