CNET Bias?

Postby 2cool4me4 » Wed Jun 20, 2012 2:37 pm

I have been simmering on this issue for a while and for some reason find it a good time to get my ideas out to the public.
CNET has been overrating apple products and underrating other products for some time, along with some other bias.

For one, they complain that the DROID Razr doesn't have a removable battery, but say no such thing on the iPhone. They complain about the small screen on the iPhone but complain immediately that the Razr is too big. Hey, maybe there is a comfort zone. I'll let that one slide.
I just searched for Best Phones and the iPod came up on the list. Maybe not bias, but embarrassing on CNET's part.
Actually, at a better look, all of the iPod Touches on the list, but not one iphone... That is pretty sad.

So, after rambling for two paragraphs, I let you all have your opinions.
Once you have mastered the :usevalue:, you are a truly awesome 001er.

CNET? But I can't even hear NET! :P

Erm, right, anyway. I can't recall reading any of their articles, or even willingly visiting their website. Maybe each review is written by a different person? Everyone tends to have a different personal bias.

I dunno, but they mostly seem biased.
EDIT: ...toward apple

If it's media it's biased. It's pretty simple.
