(AP) The industry group that hosts the annual gadget show known as International CES is dropping reviews website CNET as the picker of its Best of CES awards. It says CNET reviewers' objectivity was compromised by the site's corporate parent, CBS Corp.


The Consumer Electronics Association also elevated the CNET writers' initial pick for the best gadget of the show, Dish Network's Hopper with Sling, as a co-winner along with a gaming tablet called Razer Edge.


CBS had annulled an earlier vote by CNET staff to award the Hopper because it is suing Dish over the product. The Hopper allows users to automatically skip commercials from prime-time TV shows, undercutting a key source of revenue for CBS, advertising.


The association says it is looking for a new partner for its awards.
