A: A representative of this organization made a statement to the media after a member of the organization was found doing something wrong.

If it was (only) "damage control", the statement was superficial, designed to limit the damage done to the public image of the organization. It did not address any underlying problem that members of the organization may have a pattern of this kind of wrong action.

For example the statement may have expressed surprise and regret about the particular event, but blamed the individual as atypical. It would not have admitted that the organization might have any responsibility or need to reform itself to prevent this kind of thing happening again.
