Yes, I see it now. Thanks! It just took forever for the page to load on my computer.
It would be very interesting to know what heads will roll at the magazine. Undoubtedly the sales guy who let the cult buy the ad. Major magazines do not appreciate being made into a headline joke by actions of underlings.
It would also be very interesting to know if any of the employees involved in getting the ad published were Scilons. In the past that is how cult press releases snuck into various media.
It wouldn't surprise me to find that at least one person was RPF'ed as a result of this foot bullet. DM probably is furious over this matter.
Normally I would say more than one, but he must be running low on staff by now.
not much of a flap
after all it involves no misadventure whatsoever on the part of CoS
Mmm hmmm. Yeah.
wake me up when the killin' starts
The magazine went as far as editing out critical comments. That makes me suspicious...along with the fact that the advertorial got printed in the first place. I am guessing there would be more than one person who had to be involved in the original decision to print the advertorial and that it would naturally have been questioned, so someone had to "handle the CI, make it go right, get the product, report the 'done' and put the stat on the graph".
Why People Are Saying Lawrence Wright's Scientology Book Is So Great
By Esther Zuckerman | The Atlantic Wire – 3 hrs ago
Lawrence Wright's long look at Scientology, Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood & the Prison of Belief, is set for release tomorrow, and reviews, for the most part, have been overwhelmingly positive. But why? Lawrence is only the latest high-profile investigation into the underbelly of Scientology, following big heaves by St. Petersburg (now Tampa Bay) Times and Janet Reitman's landmark book Inside Scientology. While those who have read Wright's effort already have not reported any bombshell revelations, they are full of raves. How does it stand out? Well, here's what critics have to say: ...
It was a big one but I'd still have to say the Debbie Cook trial had to take the caek.
But there are just so many I think I've forgotten half of them. Scientology will forever be remembered as the supreme master of foot-bullets. I mean their genius just never ceases to amaze.

Very good article. Excerpts:
I wonder if they had to issue a refund?? I also wonder why they chose this publication & how many they had to approach before
finding someone who actually said YES.
Anyone know what the cost of the ad may have been & how long it was to run?
Re: Tony Ortega: The Atlantic Magazine
Excellent TWEET Synthia! Fricken AWESOME!!
The TOP 100 Footbullets - Yes. Someone start that one please!
I was thinking a poll but I don't think you could list as many things as you need to.
now that i think about it...
there might be some skulldggery there, bribe(s), subterfuge to get it past the watchdog nd the hired help
who is editor in chief?
he or she ultimately is personnally responsible for the entire content and may not plead ignorance
Lovely line from gawker article:
I hope they don't give them a refund and when the Church asks for one they are told that if they give them a refund they a barred forever from advertising anywhere.
Wouldn't that be cool.
