Cutts is the king of spin and loves the power and control he has over webmasters that follow his every word of false info-rubbish
Don't forget Matt has superiors he takes orders from and must answer to. I believe that Matt genuinely feels Google is making steps in the right direction. Unfortunately, I think he is so deep into coding the algorithm that he is not looking closely at the results it is generating. Nearly anyone that has participated in a large web design project, including myself, is guilty of this. Let's just hope that the user outflow Google is experiencing is determined internally to be the result of quality issues and not the NSA privacy stuff. Fewer users is a metric I'm sure Google execs and shareholders can interpret pretty easily, but hopefully they look at the search results and lay fault there.
