Can facts be distorted?

Were I to live next door to a major industrial facility, or to work in one, or have a child who worked in one, I’d be interested in the facility’s safety record.  “‘Disclosing information of this nature serves little public good, is easily misinterpreted and can lead to unfair conclusions,” says a rep of the National Association of Manufacturers, who sorely needs a crisis communications course.

Who owns that information?  What’s it worth (both positive and negative) to whom?
