Now that's some spin!

NatGasNow just sent the following tweet:


While I have no doubt jobs were added due to the gas boom, the article they link to makes NO statement that the employment growth was "largely due to surge of jobs ‪created by ‪natural gas‬ development" to paraphrase their tweet. What it said instead was:
But specific industries can alter that conventional wisdom, and Ohio is currently undergoing a boom in natural gas exploration that holds the promise of hundreds or thousands of new jobs. (emphasis added).
That be some grade A truthiness the gas industry PR hacks are slinging.
