Co$ Bad Press Collection - 2015
« on: January 31, 2015, 21:32 »
This is a new year of bad press for the “Church” of Scientology. 2015 starts out with a BANG which includes a documentary that will air on HBO based on the book by Pulitzer prize winning author Lawrence Wright – “Going Clear” by filmmaker Alex Gibney Oscar winning documentary director, the announcement of a forthcoming book by journalist Tony Ortega – “The Unbreakable Miss Lovely: How the Church of Scientology tried to destroy Paulette Cooper” and release of the play – “Disconnection” by playwright Allen Barton.

http://tonyortega.org/the-unbreakable-miss-lovely/
http://www.mikerindersblog.org/disconnection-the-play/

This is not January, this is BAMuary!  ooo}

Like last year’s thread, I will track down and post a monthly list of bad press which will include written press as well as radio and TV press.

Tony Ortega’s Underground Bunker - http://tonyortega.org/ - is the leading force of researched reporting about the cult, Scientology front groups, cult members, and lawsuits. The monthly lists found here and on last year’s thread and are merely supplemental reading to Tony’s meticulously researched work. More and more journalists and gossip columnists are becoming less and less afraid of Co$ litigious past and ruthless approach to news reporters who dare to expose its crimes or merely say something bad about it. It is obvious the mainstream media is no longer timid to talk about the Co$, but will they continue to pussyfoot and discuss the eccentricities of Scientologist celebrities? OR will they grow bigger balls be eager to dig in and provide stories that depict how destructive the Co$ is to everything it touches? I hope to see a lot more of the latter this year.

If you missed last year’s thread, here is the link –

I compiled last year’s monthly list into one (78 page) PDF document that you can download and share –

This is not January, this is BAMuary!  ooo}

Like last year’s thread, I will track down and post a monthly list of bad press which will include written press as well as radio and TV press.

Tony Ortega’s Underground Bunker - http://tonyortega.org/ - is the leading force of researched reporting about the cult, Scientology front groups, cult members, and lawsuits. The monthly lists found here and on last year’s thread and are merely supplemental reading to Tony’s meticulously researched work. More and more journalists and gossip columnists are becoming less and less afraid of Co$ litigious past and ruthless approach to news reporters who dare to expose its crimes or merely say something bad about it. It is obvious the mainstream media is no longer timid to talk about the Co$, but will they continue to pussyfoot and discuss the eccentricities of Scientologist celebrities? OR will they grow bigger balls be eager to dig in and provide stories that depict how destructive the Co$ is to everything it touches? I hope to see a lot more of the latter this year.

If you missed last year’s thread, here is the link –
http://forum.reachingforthetippingpoint.net/index.php/topic,12740.0.html

I compiled last year’s monthly list into one (78 page) PDF document that you can download and share –
http://misstia.com/badpress2014.html

Bamuary, indeed! Thanks for your work in compiling all of this news and sharing it with Tipping Point. 
The ultimate authority must always rest with the individual's own reason and critical analysis.

“George was the first person to come out publicly and say that he had been in the small class of Scientologists who experienced original OT 8 on the cruise ship Freewinds in the summer of 1988 (and he had the certificate to prove it). And, more importantly, he had convincing testimony that he did receive, in fact, the controversial issue which has L. Ron Hubbard describing himself as the antichrist, and in which Hubbard calls Jesus a “lover of young boys.”  Synopsis by Tony Ortega - http://tonyortega.org/2015/02/06/scientology-vs-the-mayor-the-full-gabe-cazares-interview-from-1997s-secret-lives/

Closing Minds
How does Scientology control its members? How does it convince them to avoid any negative information about Scientology? How does it persuade them not to look at critical information on the Internet, on TV, or in the press? How does it convince them to avoid or entirely disconnect from people who are critical of Scientology – even their close friends, their family members, or their own parents or children? All while loftily talking about “improving communication” and “searching for truth”? How can they compel otherwise intelligent people to live in an information bubble where they will only believe what Scientology tells them and refuse to look at any critical information? How do they convince ordinary people to donate huge amounts of money to the Church, far more than they can afford? How do they induce staff to work long and hard hours, endure deprivation and abuse, for little or no pay?”

A TimesTalks Conversation
TheTimesCenter, 242 West 41st Street, NYC

Go behind the scenes of the compelling new HBO Documentary Film “Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief,” which premiered at Sundance this year and will air on HBO March 16: Academy Award® winning writer and director Alex Gibney (“Taxi to the Dark Side”), Pulitzer Prize–winning author Lawrence Wright who wrote the book, and Oscar–winning writer–director–producer Paul Haggis, who appears in the film. “Going Clear” profiles former members of the church of Scientology, whose adherents include A–list Hollywood celebrities, shining a light on how the church cultivates true believers, including their experiences and what they are willing to do in the name of religion.

March has been a devastating news month for scientology!

I had a few interesting water cooler talks with some colleagues after the "Going Clear" documentary aired on HBO. All of them brought up Marty and Mosey Rathbun's harassment by "church" members.

I'll check into it with the web host, aegerprimo.  If I remember correctly, Mary got something similar when she was trying to post some quoted text - let me look for that.  I think the problem was a set of characters in a link that triggered a mod_security rule.  (If you don't know what that is, and you probably don't, never mind. I'm just thinking out loud.)  I'll PM you when it's fixed, or should be, at least.   :)

Scientology Scandals, Cover Ups + Threats with Tony Ortega & Paulette Cooper
Scientology documentary GOING CLEAR source Tony Ortega and journalist Paula Cooper expose the harassment and spying campaign that the Church of Scientology waged on Cooper following the publication of her 1971 book, THE SCANDAL OF SCIENTOLOGY. Ortega, whose recent book about Cooper and Scientology, THE UNBREAKABLE MISS LOVELY details the frame up and years-long persecution of her by L. Ron Hubbard and members of the church, lays out more of the mountain of dirt on the organization in this uncensored Media Mayhem interview, hosted by Allison Hope Weiner.

KCRW
Which way, LA?
Growing up in the Church of Scientology
“Going Clear,” the recent documentary on Scientology, has brought the church a lot of unwanted attention recently. The film is a highly-critical look at the origins of Scientology and its current practices. It relies on recollections of members who have left the church to talk about what went on behind closed doors. But the movie didn’t cover what it was like to be born and grow up in the Church of Scientology. KCRW’s Press Play spoke with two such young people about what it was like to grow up Scientologist.
