Press Spin Case Study: Another Recycled Storyline

Click here for another alarming story on drinking water. An exotic contaminant was detected at very low concentrations and customers should worry themselves sick. Don’t believe the water utility or the regulators, but only the activist group (not mentioned) who makes an alarming claim:

“we cannot be assured that the final mix is safe,” Dr. Olga Naidenko, a scientist with the Washington, D.C.-based watchdog organization, told CBS News in an email.

Note that this activist’s claim is reversible….it has not been proven that the final mix is not safe at these very trace concentrations.
