WM3 probably payed her to do the PR work that is my guess, they probably had the other two sources to make it seem a little more credible. If you check the branded terms for this business they have been pushing some really dodgy PR releases recently lol
Haha. Funny you should say that. I sent her a tweet and just read her reply. I couldn't then help but look at her site. Definitely appears to be a payola deal. She's either ignorant or doesn't care. I almost wanted to get into an argument but I think checking out her other articles might be worth doing as well.
Once I saw the article I immediately searched their brand. Going to be hard for them to push down whirlpool.
