Media seemed pretty neutral on the consoles so far. They have been reporting devs opinion. Sure there were extra coverage of Xbox because Phil Spencer have been very vocal. Also there were more nasty rumors from PS5 since Sony have been less vocal. But all the "Sony is paying devs and media to sugar coat PS5 and hide its weakness" can't really be proved with evidence.
You mean *without evidence, right? Because I get that. At the same time, using Giant Bomb shitting on a PS5 console-exclusive as evidence of games media not being bought out holds no water because of the disparity. It's tougher to consider GB being potentially influenced by goodies when their founder was previously fired for not giving into that before.
