SPINNED?

Help Wanted ad spotted in the Wilmington News-Journal:

WANTED: Editorial page proofreader. Must be able to prevent paragraphs such as this:

“An infidel enemy who publicly second-guesses his tone of aggression gets spinned as admitting his cause is weaker than he originally said. Imagine the recruiting tool these words of regret will be used for to inspire more suicide bombers.”

Are they still hiring? Can I telecommute? I have real proofreading experience, I need the money, and I’m sick and tired of staring at this miserable wreck of a passage. 🙂
