CEA drops CNET as Best of Show Awards partner


Citing CNET’s disqualification of the Dish product for the Best of Show competition, CEA is seeking a new partner to run its Best of CES awards program.

Karen Chupka, senior vice president, events and conferences for CEA said, “We are concerned the new review policy will have a negative impact on our brand should we continue the awards relationship as currently constructed.”

This move by the organizer of CES is unsurprising and further confirms that CBS’ decisions continue to hurt CNET’s journalistic integrity.

    You might want to correct the headline. It says “CEA”, not “CES”

      Try reading the linked article. The CEA is the Consumer Electronics Association, which runs CES.

        Damn, I hate it when I’m wrong.

        You don’t even have to read the linked article. In the body of the story, I wrote, “This move by the organizer of CES…” so…there’s that, too… :)

        But I will admit, the different initials do cause confusion.

    The problem is that it’ll end up going to either: ZDNet, Engadget, The Verge or Jizzmodo. What they really need to do is put together a panel of tech journalists from several sites, not just one site. But they won’t do that because they can’t sell the sponsorship that way.
