Wow! Digital Trends Really Blew It!

First, Digital Trends claimed that VanMoof was lying about their ebike being hard to steal. They went on and on about every aspect being a false claim, or easily defeated. That was about a week ago.

Today, they are RETRACTING every statement, and alologizing to the company. They trusted the results claimed by a third party without verifying them, nor reaching out to VanMoof. They have been unable to reproduce the original failures they reported.

I can appreciate the apologies. But this is SHODDY JOURNALISM at its best. The damage the original article did is probably incalculable.

I feel sad for VanMoof.
