Well, indeed on both points... But one only needs a cursory examination of the forums to realise how people around here inevitably interpret "reporting on a community reaction."
For a very large number of people, even reporting on negative feedback is going to come across as "bashing" the game, which Chris has gone on record to say he's trying to avoid.
...For what it's worth however, I'm a big proponent of all the major podcasts to remain 'neutral' in their handling of Cryptic's developments. I was quite ropable when Priorty One described themselves as "Cryptic Apologists", as ultimately, they are not only a mouthpiece for the game to the greater community, but also our most influential line of communication to Cryptic.
