    I was not going to start a new thread for 2016 for two reasons. Firstly; the amount of Co$ bad press last year was quite time consuming to keep up with and I had to start abbreviating the list of links the last 3 months of the year. Secondly; it seemed like hardly anyone was checking out my monthly installments of the thread. This made the task daunting and uninspiring, but I felt compelled at least to finish the year because I am not the type of person to quit a project before it is complete.

    Then, out of curiosity, I used Google…

    Google “Church of Scientology bad press” and you will find that in the top 10 are links to either my threads at the chat forums or other sites linking to them.
    https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=co$+bad+press

    I guess my project over the past couple of years has some value because people can come and see the monthly lists all in one location instead of trying to compile them on their own or randomly going from link to link to link.

    In other words, I decided to continue my project of collecting Co$ bad press for 2016. This year my lists will be a bit more abbreviated than the previous two years, and I decided to include Tony Ortega’s articles at the Underground Bunker as well – www.tonyortega.org. The only reason I did not include Tony’s articles in the past two years of threads is because anyone who reads or finds Tony Ortega’s articles on Scientology will find that he is a journalist who does his research and has enough guts to expose the truth about Scientology and it’s complex criminal activities on a daily basis. I was hoping that other media outlets would follow suit and begin to do some research on the complex shenanigans of the Church, it’s front groups, it’s leader and members.

    If you missed the previous year threads, here are the links –

    Both threads for 2014 and 2015 have way more than 10,000 views each. That's pretty damn good. :yes:

    The number of "views" is a way better indicator than the number of "replies" to determine the level of interest.

    There's many people here who stay in lurk mode and never post, but they do read.

    At any rate, thank-you for creating those threads. I'm sure many found them helpful.

    The Church of Scientology’s innermost and darkest secrets are revealed by Karen de la Carriere, former wife of Scientology president Heber Jentzsch, who has faced harassment from the Church since leaving in 2010. Carriere describes how the Church cut her off from her son and hid his death from her. She details the church’s exploitation of children and explains why Scientology celebrities like Tom Cruise and John Travolta turn a blind eye to the Church’s inhuman treatment of its members. Finally, we look at the 2008 Anonymous protest against the practices of the Church and the sadism of Scientology leader David Miscavige, in this uncensored Media Mayhem interview hosted by Allison Hope Weiner.

    Ethan McKinley’s QUESTIONABLE
    SCIENTOLOGY EXPOSED: Tony Ortega
    Scientology has long been a mystery. A self proclaimed religion counting some of the most famous people on the planet as its members, but in recent years, many high profile defections have erupted from the church, along with stories of aliens, mind control and human rights abuses not just in the lower levels but also in the higher echelons of the leadership. Journalist, Tony Ortega is the Executive Editor of 'The Lip TV' and former editor of the Village Voice. Tony has been reporting on Scientology for over 20 years and is one of the world's foremost experts in exposing Scientology, not only on his blog, 'The Underground Bunker' but also in his book 'The Unbreakable Miss Lovely' and his contributions to HBO's documentary, 'Going Clear' that has been sending shockwaves around the world.

    Wow!! @aegerprimo, I'm embarrassed to admit didn't even know about your prior years' threads. I used to check in on mainly just the General Discussion and New Members threads. Restructuring the board was a good idea.

    This is a daunting treasure trove of reading. I may need the rest of April just to catch up on Jan-->Mar.

    Thank you for all your work!! :thankyou::cheerleader::hattip:

Let your eyes widen as you hear the various questionable biographical details of the founder's life, from being the youngest-ever Eagle Scout to performing microbiological studies... by himself. Plus, Carrie tests the e-meter, Ross recounts a previous visit where he was ejected from the building, and we review the official Scientology literature on the controversial practice of "disconnecting" from loved ones who question the Church.

    ESCAPING SCIENTOLOGY: Marc Headley
    Born into the Church, raised within and working for Scientology from age 16, Marc was recruited into the elite Sea-Org. It was a dream come true for Marc when he began working at the prestigious Gold Base [International Headquarters] California. But all that glitters was not gold. Over the next 15 years Marc witnessed many human rights abuses, both to himself, friends and other members. Marc took it upon himself to escape.

    Aaron Smith Levin on growing up in Scientology
    Former second-generation Scientologist Aaron Smith-Levin became a member of the Church of Scientology at around the age of 4, after his mother joined up in Philadelphia. Aaron details his life within Scientology, from joining staff at age 12, to signing his billion year Sea Org contract in his 20's, to eventually leaving the cult along with his wife and children. We discuss what it was like as a child growing up knowing nothing other than Scientology. We discuss how Scientology is often contradictory and at odds with its own belief system, along with the posthumous influence of L Ron Hubbard, regarded by Scientologists as both god and man.

That's what Laura DeCrescenzo did back in 1991. She was twelve years old at the time and that commitment meant she had to move out of her parents' home in New Mexico and into Scientology's "Pac Base" in Hollywood.

    Ross and Carrie Audit Scientology (Part 7): The Way to Happiness
    We've finally got what you've been looking for: the meaning of life. Yes, you've been thinking to yourself, "How can I be ultimately happy?" Well, the answer is in a 70-page booklet called "The Way to Happiness," that is IN NO WAY affiliated with the Church of Scientology, other than being written by its founder, L. Ron Hubbard. And the organization which distributes said booklet is IN NO WAY Scientologist, other than being run by members of the Church.

    Ross prepares for Scientology's hardcore detoxification program, in which he will sweat out his toxins in a sauna, chug niacin, and drink gross water until he's free of the harmful effects of... peas? Meanwhile, Carrie digs into the dirt of what actually happens in one's body during the rundown, and gets a formal invitation to Sunday Service. Then, join our duo as they attend the weekly service and read LRH's hilariously redundant words of wisdom. And finally, find out how they're found out. Will Ross and Carrie be kicked out of Scientology? Who knows!

    Book Release
    Fair Game: The Incredible Untold Story of Scientology in Australia
    As astonishing as it is compelling - Steve Cannane's extraordinary insight into Scientology in Australia is investigative journalism at its very best. From Rugby League players trying to improve their game, to Hollywood superstars and the depressed sons of media moguls, Scientology has recruited its share of famous Australians. Less known is that Australia was the first place to ban Scientology, or that Scientology spies helped expose the Chelmsford Deep Sleep Scandal. Numerous Australians have held senior posts in the organisation only to fall foul of the top brass and lose their families as a result. Based on years of interviews and research, Walkley Award-winning journalist Steve Cannane tells for the first time the fascinating story of Australia's vital involvement with this powerful, secretive and punitive cult.

    Beyond the Trailer Park Ep. 79: Ex-Scientologist Pete Griffiths
    This week we are joined by ex-Scientologist Pete Griffiths. All the way from Ireland, "Griffiths ran a mission in Cumbria, in northern England, until his weekly figures petered out. By the time he moved to Westport, in 1998, he planned to return to Scientology once his children were grown and he could better afford it. It wasn’t until he heard of a protest in 2008 that he looked into Scientology online and had a “penny-dropping moment”. “From 1987 to 2008 the thought control was all in place,” he says. “Then a lengthy unravelling process began. I got so angry that I burned any Scientology stuff I had lying around in a bonfire. I couldn’t look at it any more. The sense of betrayal is just incredible. The clues are all there, but you don’t see them.”" Pete is now an anti-Scientology protester and YouTuber, offering support to former Scientologists and information about it's many flaws and issues to current members through protests.

    Sensibly Speaking Podcast #51 - A New Explanation of L. Ron Hubbard
    One of the biggest questions about Scientology is what were the intentions of its founder, L. Ron Hubbard in creating it and if it's a great big con, why would he have stuck with it for decades and written and done as much as he did. In this episode, guest Yuval Laor and I discuss a theory that could answer these questions and explain L. Ron Hubbard in a way that has never been talked about before.

    Well Hoaxie, at the risk of upsetting the ladies and others of tender feelings . . . my nickname in the days of my fame on the beaches of Oz was: The COUNT . . .

    The true and actual story being that one of the quick witted lads was ribalding me in the way Ozzies do (they greet their best friends as "ya Old Bastard) . . . and he was overheard by one of the girls who challenged him as to what he had called me (it was 1955 . . . we were all rather dainty in those days) . . . my quick witted buddy quickly added the phonetic of the "O" sound to make it seem she had misheard him. ('Cause you know how it sounds without the "O".) :yes::hysterical:
