A Pew research study has been released showing a media bias against Microsoft type. There were 65% more negative articles against Microsoft than competing font providers. The study also found that Apple's Chalkboard was unfairly escaping media scrutiny.

Damn liberal, elitists media! They deliberately insulted Comic Sans here and are so in the tank for Adobe and Apple!

Chalkboard is so similar that I'm sure it gets mistaken for the more famous Comic Sans all the time. If and when it's used, people just think, "There's that Comic Sans again!"

Adobe type tends to be disproportionately ignored by the media, actually. (Not complaining, just saying, as the question was raised.)
