Every industry has a bottom feeder, and CNET/ZDNet fill that niche for
technical reporting (though both companies have a number of outstanding 
reporters as exceptions to the general rule).  If they didn't exist, it
would be necessary to invent them.

But, as I said separately, if you want a particular type of coverage put
forward in the press, the single most important step is to provide it, 
ready to publish.
