Spinmeister shows how it's done

Now this is someone who graduated with honours from spin school.

The York Daily reporting on a security violation at Three Mile Island nuclear energy plant in the United States in April, quoted a spokesman for the Nuclear Regulatory Commission describing the preliminary findings of an investigation, as “greater than very low safety significance.” How helpful!

Government recruitment agencies here, always on the lookout for someone good at the trade, are shouting "author, author?"

The violation did not endanger health or safety but further information could not be provided:

"Officials said releasing that information could result in the disclosure of safeguarded information — which seems to imply that whatever happened was a good deal “greater than very low safety significance." Basically, they aren’t telling us what happened for our own good. That’s certainly reassuring."
