My thought when seeing this submission was "somebody's got it out for Uber." Now, I have never liked Uber, I think the "sharing economy" is a scam, and it's a sad state of affairs when middle class people are running their cars into the ground operating illicit taxi services because there are no jobs. But when every few days on /. there's more stories about how Uber hates wimminz, how their employees are evil psychos, how they're bad at business and "doomed," it seems a tad coordinated. Establish that Uber is the devil and hates women and minorities or whatever, and they're awful at business, and then when regulators move to crush them Uber will have no public support.
Again, I've never liked Uber, but I don't think these articles are organic, either.
