Yea from listening in (XM not WBPS) definitely it doesn't sound like
anyone's mindding the store at CNET radio on weekends. I agree with all your
other points, CNET defintely dropped the ball on this one. From listening in
the past week or so, I get the feeling that CNET is trying to do this new
radio venture of theirs on a shoestring budget. That's why they seemingly
can't seem to get a handle covering the Excite@home nonsense.

I'll have to say, however, that Lawrence seemed to be doing a pretty good
job on his evening talk show both Friday and yesterday (Monday) on the
Excite@home situation. But a listener just tuning in to CNET with no
knowledge of the situation, would probably become confused as to what was
going on.
