Narconon on WSB TV news
« on: January 28, 2013, 20:11 »
I just saw a WSB TV teaser about a report on Narconon of Georgia, scheduled to air Thursday, at 6 pm. There was a snippet of an interview with someone who indicated insurance fraud may be involved. Stay tuned!!

I had a friend tell me yesterday that it was on, but only the tail end was caught and I couldn't find it on their site yesterday so was waiting for someone else to spot it.  It will be interesting to see what's reported!

Do you know the name of the reporter?  It might be easier to locate it by his or her name.

Mary - I believe Jodie Fleischer is the reporter. I couldn't find the very brief teaser posted online. It appeared that a new victim had come forward. A man interviewed (attorney?) mentioned insurance fraud.

I saw it about 11:15.  It was slightly longer than what I think Free saw.  It also showed a woman who said something like "You want to do the best for your child." 

Free, was this the man you saw?  Commissioner Ralph T. Hudgens

Thanks, mefree. Jodie hasn't done an investigative special in a while so I guess it was a clip from the regular nightly / or whatever time it was news of that day. I looked but couldn't find that, either. I guess I just need to be patient, lol

My dentist is getting tired of having to dig all the popcorn kernals out of my teeth from having to wait on these kinds of stories.  ;D

Be on the lookout Thursday, starting in the morning:

Pete Combs of WSB Radio will go 0430-0830 Thursday morning.

Jodie Fleischer will go at 6pm (WSB-TV CH/2)

Christian Boone’s will likely post to AJC.com sometime during the day on Thursday.

Will update with links as they appear

The media effort to investigate Narconon of Georgia and Narconon International is spearheaded by three reporters: Christian Boone of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Jodie Fleischer at WSB-TV and Pete Combs at WSB Radio. They’ve worked together in a unique collaborative venture to dig through mountains of data on Narconon and continue their investigation now, five months after it began.

Thursday, their stories will appear in the AJC (www.ajc.com), on WSB Channel 2 Action News (www.wsbtv.com) and on News-Talk WSB (www.wsbradio.com).
You can search the web for their stories. WSB Radio Reporter Pete Combs’ stories are aggregated here: www.wsbradio.com/s/narconon

Here is an early link to the article filed by Pete Combs http://www.wsbradio.com/news/news/special-reports/narconon-georgia-and-allegations-insurance-fraud/nT9nT/

The tv report should be on tomorrow, and I'm guessing the AJC tomorrow as well.

Interesting to note how "out-pr" (in their terms) they are by submitting their own press release today talking about drug education activities from months ago and then included a picture of their drug educator, Ji Johnson, talking with a group of cheerleaders.

Feds should get in on this if it involves insurance fraud across state lines. Thinking about it a bit further, since NN GA falls under the thumb of NN Int, which would make it an inter-state operation, the Feds should get involved in the investigation anyway IMHO (not a lawyer, just speculating).

Any legal minds want to jump in on this??
