For what it's worth, I didn't find anything in the Teresa Heinz Kerry article [“Heinz foundation funds chemical issues,” Oct. 25, Page 1] that struck me as partisan or biased or even a publicity advantage to the Kerry campaign. I thought it interesting and even-handed in its approach.
In general, I think Plastics News' editorial approach has been quite neutral, politically speaking, for some time, and I appreciate that.
Having awarded that kudo, however, I will take a fingernail of it back in connection with the story “U.S. housing market to start falling in '05” [Nov. 1, Page 23], which gives Stuart Eizenstat a pass on his background by failing to note he held the offices in the Clinton administration.
This guy is a longtime Democrat political operative, not a colorless bureaucrat, and his punchline comparing Bush to Herbert Hoover is straight from the Kerry campaign.
