The Church of Scientology is no stranger to bad press. Critics call it a cult. And former members say the Church's leader, David Miscavige, is mismanaging the organization. Now Scientology is facing another PR crisis. This time, from the inside. A former high ranking member of the church, Debbie Cook, has blasted Miscavige in an email sent to 12,000 followers. It's rare for someone at this level to make such a public criticism. Janet Reitman joins the show to explain why it matters. She's the author of the book, "Inside Scientology - The Story of America's Most Secretive Religion."

Yeah, she only really had about 10 minutes, but better than nothing.

I liked the analogy they made repeatedly. The host of the show said he thought that the Big Blue complex in Los Angeles was the "scientology vatican". :biggrin:

Then later, when Janet Reitman was trying to get across how important the email from Debbie Cook was she said "Debbie Cook was like a cardinal", and that she was the "truest of the true believers".

Miscavige was referred to as the "pope of the church". :biggrin::biggrin:

Also, the host of the show confirmed that the station invited the CoS to provide a guest, which they declined to do.

Yes, and I liked how Janet came across - -she didn't seem angry, or like she had an ax to grind. She talked about things very matter-of-factly, respecting the "true believers", not belittling them, just stating the facts. I also liked how she stressed what a credible person Debbie Cook is, that she isn't out to destroy the church but to "fix" it.
