Obvious case of Blockstream & Bitcoin Core product placement? (article series on privacy & cryptocurrencies)

In a 4-part series, Eric Wall neatly demonstrates how to do product placement for Blockstream, Bitcoin Core and their affiliates including the usual troupe of BS/Core "experts".
Note: "article series by the Human Rights Foundation (HRF) on privacy and cryptocurrency, funded by the Zcash Foundation".
Don't get me wrong, there is plenty good information contained in the articles linked below. But the product placement of Bitcoin Core, Lightning, Liquid and "Green", could hardly be more obvious. For an article series "on privacy and cryptocurrencies", there is a heavy focus on BTC except in a single part (III) where the privacy coins Zcash, Monero, Grin and Beam are examined.
I recommend you read the articles. Below I've pointed out certain items that are mentioned and linked frequently within each article.
Privacy and Cryptocurrency, Part I: How Private is Bitcoin?
Privacy and Cryptocurrency, Part II: Bitcoin Wallets
  • website: bitcoin.org (get started)
  • wallet: Bitcoin Core
  • wallet: Wasabi
  • wallet: Armory
  • wallet: mSigna
  • wallet: Bitcoin Knots
  • wallet: Electrum
  • person: Peter Todd
  • person: Jameson Lopp
  • person: Udi Wertheimer
  • person: Hampus Sjöberg
  • hardware wallet: Trezor
  • hardware wallet: Ledger
  • payment server: BTCPay Server
  • payment code service: PayNym.is (made by Samourai)
  • 2nd layer: Lightning Network
  • sidechain: Liquid (by Blockstream)
  • wallet: Blockstream Green (linked via blockstream site)
  • wallet: Samourai (linked via it's own site)
  • wallet: BRD (linked via bitcoin.org!)
  • wallet: Schildbach (linked via bitcoin.org!)
  • mailing list: bitcoin-dev (run by Bitcoin Core people)
Privacy and Cryptocurrency, Part III: Should You Use a Privacy Coin?
  • Lightning
  • Liquid
  • coin: Monero
  • coin: Zcash
  • coin: Grin
  • coin: Beam
  • person: Daniel Lehnberg (Grin)
  • person: Andrew Poelstra (Blockstream, MimbleWimble)
  • person: Guy Corem.(Beam)
  • person: Ian Miers (Zcash)
  • person: Francisco Cabañas (Monero)
Privacy and Cryptocurrency, Part IV: Stablecoins— Blacklists and Traceability
  • coin: USDT on Liquid
  • wallet: Blockstream Green
  • Lightning Network (for future support of Liquid tokens like USDT)
  • person: Jameson Lopp
  • person: Matt Odell
As we can see, every article prominently highlights of Blockstream or Bitcoin Core affiliated products, persons or related companies. And every article studiously omits any mention of Bitcoin Cash or any of the privacy technologies built on it (CashShuffle) or in development on it (CashFusion), or the stable coin USDH operating on top of Bitcoin Cash.
There are certainly other cryptocurrencies and projects on them which offer privacy features, but are left unexamined in this series (e.g. projects offering privacy on ETH, mixing in Dash, etc)
In conclusion the intentions ascribed to the HRF in the first article.
The intention of the Human Rights Foundation is to examine these technologies and elucidate on their potential of bringing economic and political freedom to the individual. While there are many angles in the context of money that are within the scope of such an endeavor, we’ve chosen to focus on the topic of privacy foremost. In that pursuit it’s also clear that the degree to which cryptocurrencies enable privacy is not by any means trivial or binary — it varies greatly depending on the user’s particular choice of core and ancillary technologies and usage patterns, as well as the capabilities and sophistication of the attacker.
