Plastics News Editorial Philosophy
Our mission is to report completely, promptly, fairly and accurately, and to provide plastics industry officials with the market information and competitive intelligence they need to do their jobs more effectively.
In reporting the fast-moving and often-controversial aspects of this dynamic sector, our 20-plus experienced editors, reporters and correspondents are guided only by this test: first, is it news; and second, are the facts presented accurately and fairly? We adhere to these criteria for the simple reason that our job is to present the news without fail and bias.
Now and then, some object to the publication of certain news stories – not because the facts are reported incorrectly, but because they would rather not see them reported at all. This is because news reports occasionally contain content with which some readers do not agree. We believe the people who make up the plastics industry are interested in having all sides of a subject presented.It is this philosophy, one that Crain Communications Inc. adopted upon its founding over 90 years ago, that provides independent credibility and unsurpassed readership. As a consequence of this well-documented readership, Plastics News is the best advertising medium in its industry.
