More duped media
« on: June 19, 2009, 10:54 »
This one is in Nevada.
Narconon Gulf Coast Announces 300th Graduate From Drug Rehabilitation Program
http://www.krnv.com/Global/story.asp?S=10560987

This site, obviously so desperate for more text to fill their website, ignorantly accepted a narconon press release from PR Newswire and http://www.send2press.com/ , as many do.  While I greatly like the fact that individuals previously without influence can get their messages out in large numbers, I despise the fact that scientology takes advantage of these services with an unending stream of fraudulent press for their narconon scam.

What can we do about this on a larger scale, so we can quit playing whack-a-mole with each individual press release?  Any ideas?

And what has happened to real journalism these days?

We need to prepare counter-PR press releases, showing that this is a canned spam advertisement for the cult, advertising one of their fraudulent, dangerous front groups.

Links to examples fo the same text, statistics about Narconon's ineffectiveness as anything but a funnel into a cult and way to lighten your wallet, and basic information of Scientology should be included.

If you keep it in a Word or Notepad file, it can be copypasta'd and then tailored to the individual websites as needed.

Unlike Scientology's self-serving, sneaky advertising, our press release will be accurate and backed up with facts.

It's alive and well at the St. Petersburg Times!
