The statement was accurate.
The assessment was accurate.
The two positions use different meanings of the word "State".
The difference relies upon a Verbal Fallacy: Equivocation.
"Equivocation consists in employing the same word in two or more senses, e.g. in a syllogism, the middle term being used in one sense in the major and another in the minor premise, so that in fact there are four not three terms. Often this happens when the two meanings are similar despite being distinctly different.
Example Argument: All heavy things have a great mass; Jim has a "heavy heart"; therefore Jim's heart has a great mass.
Problem: Heavy describes more than just weight.(Jim is sad.)"
