Co$ Bad Press Collection - 2015

Jump

Operating teatime

OK so in one month we have 85 news stories 5 radio features and a TV miniseries.

Tony Ortega said in an interview that he started in 2011 thinking he could do one story a day on Scientology for a while because there seemed to be a bit of material out there. Then he smiled, shrugged and said I'm still doin it.

Relentless media exposure of manipulation and harm will be one backdrop when the tax exemption issue is being decided...

Oh wow. I was going to ask Aegerprimo if there was a graph and there is is!

The hive mind prospers :biggrin: :hifive:


Thanks Aegerprimo - all that collating is great !

Will anyone ever translate this Danish documentary? There must be hundreds of people who know about it and can do it. It looks so well done, I really want to understand it.

And this is interesting regarding Louis Theroux's docu; "The film, previously titled Stairway to Heaven: Louis Theroux and the Church of Scientology".

I wonder what is the title now?

I forget what was happening around March 2014 but the Going Clear film had a huge impact early 2015. It shows that there is huge interest in the topic and with the Theroux Film , Mark Bunker's doco the Steve Cannane book, the pressure will be acookin all through 2016.

Also, the graph shows that interest doesn't die away, it finds a new higher level :thumbsup:


Edit: I checked .. It was Leah singlehandedly unlocking the gates to press comment on matters scientological. :happydance:

How religious laws in Russia, and the unsympathetic court system are organizing to isolate, and ultimately, extinguish Scientology is explored with Scientology investigative journalist Jonny Jacobsen in the first part of our uncensored Media Mayhem discussion of Scientology in Europe, hosted by Allison Hope Weiner.

I must confess, I am surprised by the stats. I thought Leah Remini would have driven them up higher.

Still, the bad publicity is still coming strong.

Thanks aegerprimo for another year of excellent work.

I was a little shocked at the low stats for Nov and Dec, especially because of Leah Remini and her excellent work.

Just as the Challenger disaster eclipsed Hubbard's death, perhaps the Paris attacks eclipsed the fallout I would have expected by the release of Leah Remini's epic book.

I cheered myself up by comparing 2014-2015. What an amazing year.

I suspect that luck will not save David Miscavige in 2016.

Thank you SO MUCH for making these graphs! I hope you don't mind I shared one at the Underground Bunker yesterday, but linked to your post above. https://disqus.com/home/discussion/theundergrondbunker/friday_28/#comment-2435360618

I was on vacation in October, then doing lots of overtime and extra on-call duty through November and December so did not have the time to collect the amount of press I usually do. There was a lot more press about Leah's book, but I tried to collect the pertinent ones, especially her TV interviews.

I plan on starting a new thread of Co$ bad press for 2016. Keep your eyes peeled next month!
