CNET Picked Dish Hopper as 'Best of CES' ... Until CBS Stepped In

Tech site CNET today confirmed that it initially selected the Dish Hopper for its Best of CES award. But that prompted parent company CBS to step in and order that the site select another winner due to ongoing litigation between CBS and Dish.
The controversy has led to the resignation of at least one CNET staffer, Greg Sandoval, who covered digital media.
At issue is the "best of" awards that publications - like PCMag - hand out to tech companies for superior releases at trade shows like CES. At this year's CES, Dish launched a Sling-enabled Hopper DVR, which will let customers watch live and recorded television anywhere, not just at home.
Last week, CNET announced on its Twitter feed that the Dish Hopper with Sling was nominated for its Best of CES award. But when the site's final selections were announced, the Hopper with Sling was nowhere to be found, and the article included a note that said the site was forced to remove the product from consideration due to the lawsuit. CNET said it would also not review Dish products until the lawsuit was resolved.
