No corporate bias

To start off answering the question in your title - not in the way you mean... Individual writers will have opinions and no-one can be free of all bias - but I believe that avoiding bias is an objective for DPR - otherwise they would get in trouble with their owners.

Noticed the X-T3 is criticized for no IBIS!

the phrase "The lack of image stabilization is the main factor you might want to consider in what is otherwise a great all-rounder."

Perhaps because that is about the only criticism of what otherwise is an outstanding camera - what else would you like them to criticize it for, or do you think it is the perfect camera?

Why isn't this an issue for the reviewer with the Nikon and Canons mentioned costing 3 to 4 times more money?

Perhaps because there are plenty of other things to criticize those cameras for?
