I typically appreciate reading Plastics News because it's normally very informative on what is going on within the plastics industry. But in my opinion you stepped over the line with your article concerning the owner of GN and the charges he is facing. (“Equipment company founder faces child porn charges,” April 13, Page 3.)
This type of news has no place in a business publication, especially when this person has only been accused of something. The impact this has on a business is devastating but the impact it has with the loyal and dedicated employees, a few of whom I know very well, is horrific.
I would have hoped that Plastics News would have thought through this more and made a more professional decision, but you didn't and it's very unfortunate because it's not something that you can simply take back. Very disappointing from a loyal reader of Plastics News.
