Cbssports Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
CBS is sometimes referred to as the Eye Network, in reference to the company's trademark symbol, in use since 1951. It has also been called the "Tiffany Network", alluding to the perceived high quality of CBS programming during the tenure of William S. Paley. It can also refer to some of CBS's first demonstrations of color television, which were held in a former Tiffany & Co. building in New York City in 1950. The network has its origins in United Independent Broadcasters Inc., a radio network created in January 1927 in Chicago by Arthur Judson, a New York City talent agent. It was later that year, in April, that the Columbia Phonograph Company, parent of the Columbia record label, invested in the network, resulting in its re-branding to the Columbia Phonographic Broadcasting System (CPBS). In early 1928, Judson & Columbia sold the network to Isaac & Leon Levy, brothers who owned WCAU, the network's Philadelphia affiliate, as well as their partner, Jerome Louchheim. They installed William S. Paley, an in-law of the Levys, as President of the network. With the Columbia record label out of ownership, Paley re-branded the network as "Columbia Broadcasting System". Under Paley's guidance, CBS would first become one of the largest radio networks in the United States, and eventually one of the Big Three American broadcast television networks. In 1974, CBS dropped its original full name and became known simply as CBS, Inc. The Westinghouse Electric Corporation acquired the network in 1995, renaming its corporate entity as CBS Broadcasting, Inc. in 1997, and eventually adopted the name of the company it had acquired to become CBS Corporation. In 2000, CBS came under the control of the first Viacom, which was formed as a spin-off of CBS in 1971. In 2005, Viacom split itself into two separate companies and re-established CBS Corporation through the spin-off of its broadcast television, radio, and select cable television and non-broadcasting assets, with the CBS television network at its core. CBS Corporation was controlled by Sumner Redstone through National Amusements, which also controlled the second Viacom until December 4, 2019, when the two separated companies agreed to re-merge to become the new single entity known as ViacomCBS. CBS formerly operated the CBS Radio network until 2017, when it sold its radio division to Entercom. Before this, CBS Radio mainly provided news and features content for its portfolio owned-and-operated radio stations in large and mid-sized markets, as well as its affiliated radio stations in various other markets. While CBS Corporation shareholders own a 72% stake in Entercom, CBS no longer owns or operates any radio stations directly. It still provides radio news broadcasts to its radio affiliates and to the new owners of its former radio stations. licenses the rights to use CBS trademarks under a long-term contract. The television network has more than 240 owned-and-operated, and affiliated television stations throughout the United States; some of them are also available in Canada via pay-television providers or in border areas over-the-air. The company ranked 197th on the 2018 Fortune 500 of the largest American corporations by revenue.
In January 2017, after the events of the 2017 Chicago torture incident took place, CBS Radio News reported, "The viral video of a beating and knife attack in Chicago suggests the assault had racial overtones. CBS’s Dean Reynolds tells us the victim is described as a mentally challenged teenager. In the video he is choked and repeatedly called the n-word. His clothes are slashed and he is terrorized with a knife. His alleged captors repeatedly reference Donald Trump. This description was criticized by conservatives, including Jack Armstrong and Joe Getty at the San Francisco CBS Radio News affiliate KGO (AM)

I'm still waiting on the third shirt to arrive. I attempted to contact customer service and per the information provided, the wait was over an hour. I'm not sure when I'll get the shirt. Not to mention that the tracking number is now reporting that USPS will be delivering the shirt. Terrible shipping. Never again."
