German media attack new Polish EV brand

 For several weeks now, I see strange news headlines on Google that directly or indirectly try to attack the new Polish brand of electric cars, Izera. Most of those headlines are from German-owned media in Poland, but some seem to be a result of search results tweaks on Google itself. 

The latest headline that for some reason doesn't want to go away is: "Izera? Who needs it? EMP is afraid that it will be late and Poles "fall in love with VW." 

The most annoying thing, though, is the "fake news" on Google that for several weeks now brings the headlines of "other" first Polish electric cars that for some reason are always 1 or 2 days old. When you click on them, you learn that the articles were written either early this year or sometime last year. 

I understand that it is a race for market dominance, but I don't see it as fair, and I don't think I will ever consider a VW as my next car.
