    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.

    This is not January, this is BAMuary! :footbullet:

    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 - - 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 –

    Threatened and Harassed By the Church of Scientology
    Paulette Cooper was harassed by the Church of Scientology after she wrote against Scientology. The Church of Scientology accused Cooper of making bomb threats, and the FBI investigation against her threatened to derail her career as a journalist. The bizarre persecution of Cooper by Scientology in 1973, and the government raid of the Church in 1977 that uncovered the conspiracy against her is shared by writer Tony Ortega in this excerpt from the Media Mayhem interview all about the Church of Scientology and Paulette Cooper.

    Book by George White
    Lucifer’s Bridge
    “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 -

    e-Book by Jefferson Hawkins
    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?”

    “Scientology: Enough is Enough” – Dublin event conference

    It is FAR more than a snippet, the comparison to brainwashed followers of the corrupt leader of Scientology runs throughout the article and is absolutely HILARY-ous. :biggrin: Well worth reading the entire article, where the comparison to L Ron's loser cult and con are woven throughout this very long article.

    Funny coincidence, but I just posted this pic on exscn yesterday: :hysterical: :hysterical: :hysterical:
