I agree many customers want them to be biased. I don't at all deny that. I've seen it first hand. My issue is that I don't think it's right just because the customers want it. I think many customers respect and appreciate someone that works hard, writes well and does their job correctly even if they're unwilling to show bias toward their product. If you're good at what you do, and cover what people want to read about, they'll still respect you and you will still be successful without having to be biased to do it.
