Title: Co$ Bad Press Collection - 2014
Post by: aegerprimo on February 06, 2014, 11:58
Times sure have changed for the Co$. Major publications and mainstream media are no longer afraid to print stories about the Co$, Scientology, and its members. Those who were casually laughing at cult lunacy before are now starting to seriously take notice of its cruelty and abuses. IMHO, 2014 is the year that the Scientology bad image and bad name will be totally beyond repair. Loyal members will not be able to ignore wide ranging articles all over the internet, on newsstands, and on other media resources, about the abuses the Co$ continues to commit against its followers and staff members.

Of course, no media source can match Tony Ortega’s relentless daily reporting on Scientology at the Underground Bunker- (, especially when it comes to his quality and speed.

In this thread, I will attempt to post the articles I found for the month at the end of each month. I hope this thread will be useful for both RFTTP members and lurkers. I am one person, one pair of eyes. There will probably be articles that I will miss, so please post the ones you find here as well.

A good idea.  I've found that the easiest way to search is via google news archive search:

Basically just search for Scientology and put the date range in there.  Unfortunately, it just dumps results without creating an easy format to cut and paste here.

Looks like hundreds or thousands of results.

Thank you, aegerprimo!

Loyal members will not be able to ignore wide ranging articles all over the internet, on newsstands, and on other media resources, about the abuses the Co$ continues to commit against its followers and staff members.

They certainly won't be able to ignore it.  They can't even go to the grocery store without seeing tabloids and other magazines at the checkout and being exposed to the dreaded entheta.  They'll have to stay at home to avoid it, and it's pretty hard to recruit new members from home.  This will slow down the incoming even more.   C{{O}}

I was thinking that maybe Scientology should just come up with new definitions for words, since they do that all the time anyways, a la technical dictionary.


Things like that.  This way they won't have to actually lie at any scientology events to their parishioners.  They could say things like "NARCONON has been reported in the press to be an excellent program, fair to all who come, and advancing more than ever before."
