DPR biased?

DPR announced firmware updates today for two different cameras, both stories written by the same person. Whereas the one for the Nikon just keep to the cold facts, the one written for the Ricoh first presents the camera as a kind of failure before getting to the facts. See for yourself:

"Nikon has released firmware version 1.20 for its D500 camera. The firmware update, which comes two years after the camera was initially released, adds the ability to connect via Wi-Fi to devices running SnapBridge (version 2.5.4 or later) and fixes a number of additional issues."

"The Ricoh GR III is far from perfect, but it's won over the heart of at least one DPReview writer. Many of the imperfections it has can't be fixed with a firmware update, but Ricoh is still attempting to address at least a few problems with the camera in the form of a new firmware update — version 1.10."

The different approaches seem unfair to me.
