The biggest datum to me that is beyond my comprehension, baffling, bewildering, mystifying, :hysterical: when you read this threat letter is that it is *NOT* written by a lawyer or anyone in their 25 man OSA INT legal division, but by a PR spokesmen PR spokesman Karen POUW ! Go figure.

I wondered if they were going to go there. There is some pretty amazing footage in the film. Congratulations to HBO for being brave enough not to be intimidated by these bullies. And congratulations to all of you who continue to take a public stand against Scientology at cost to your work, your health, your family, your reputation. CoS is one of the true fascists of our times, and there are some real heroes here. Time will tell.

Spokesperson, Wacky Cult of Scientology International

Dear Ms. Pouw,

We here at HBO have read with interest your long winded and hyperbolic list of concerns regarding our film production entitled Going Clear and the Prison of Belief.

The Chairman of HBO along with myself, the CEO, our attorneys, and Mr. Alex Gibney agreed that it would be appropriate to hire the character Jesse Pinkman to deliver our response:


Bring it!!

If I were one of the CSI's attorneys I'd be on the phone to Slappy telling him to order Karen Pouw to STFU. LOL.... She's such an idiot!! Of course Slappy can't see that fact. He thinks she's really Tone 40ing it!! :eyeroll:

The letters written by the attorneys on behalf of their clients have some gravitas. But Pouw's letters sound like a teenaged girl's Twitter rant. LOL...

Keep on linking Freedom Mag's site Karen!! That's the funniest part of your letters! LOL...


:lol::lol::lol::lol:

Am I high...or did I not hear Alex Gibney say several times during interviews that the "Church" never answered his invitations to rebut and comment on the content of the film during production?

Yet Pouw-wow keeps saying that "they traveled thousands of miles to give their accounts" of Rathbun, Rinder, blah..blah..blah..

This dude, Robert E. Mangels of Jeffer Mangels, is a name partner in a serious West L.A. law firm and whose hourly billing rate is probably between $800 and $1,000.

This is easy money. Copypasta the crap in Freedumb magazine and correct the punctuation. Don't discount your rate. Get paid in 30 days. Hope the crazy client sends you more matters.

Maybe the next documentary should be, "Behind the Scenes: Scientology's Vicious Attempt to Shudder HBO into Silence"

They just keep creating their own material for critics to chomp on. :duh:

I assume Co$ leaked this ridiculous letter, yes?

Is this letter being made publicly available via the Freedom magazine site or the official Scientology site? Both sites, perhaps?

ETA: The March 12, 2015 letter is only available on the Freedom magazine site.

Some of the mainstream media have pulled this letter off the FreeDumb Mag site and posted it...

^^^ World Religious News is a totally pro-Scn site (possibly/probably even run by Scn). Try making any negative comments about Scn on that site and they will never get through moderation. It's most definitely not a mainstream media site.

I should have written more clearly, AP. I'm sorry.
I meant to say that the March 12 letter posted in the OP on this thread was originally only available @the Freedom magazine site.
You're correct; some news outlets have quoted this, and other, ridiculous Co$ letters, although most have simply linked to the Freedom mag site.

Also, FYI, the website you kindly linked above, "worldreligionnews" is likely a Co$-sponsored site.
I believe this because a few weeks ago, I visited the site and noticed the vast majority of 'articles' were all pro-scientology (aka anti-truthful).

Remember back in November 2014 when HBO announced the release of Alex Gibney's documentary Going Clear, it hits the mainstream media BIG TIME that HBO was prepared for attacks from the Co$ and lawyered up. Here is a sampling of the articles in case you missed them...
