Oh the stat pain of all those square inches of bad press!

I particularly like this quote from The Daily Beast article mentioned:

Those most interested in the history of the Church and its founder Hubbard—a pulp fiction novelist, megalomaniac, confidence man, deadbeat dad, bigamist, alcoholic, kidnapper, and compulsive liar – would be better served by reading Rolling Stone writer Janet Reitman’s 2011 Inside Scientology, which provides a more thorough basis for understanding the Church’s founding, development into a global enterprise, and its arcane system of beliefs and salvation-by-pyramid-scheme.

Salvation-by-pyramid scheme! Oh, I love it!! Let alone the perfect encapsulation of Hubbard... "pulp fiction novelist, megalomaniac, confidence man, deadbeat dad, bigamist, alcoholic, kidnapper, and compulsive liar". Life doesn't get much better than this!

Edit: OMG!! Look how it ends...

Acknowledging that members of a religion can “believe whatever they choose,” Wright adds the important caveat that “it is a different matter to use the protections afforded a religion by the First Amendment to falsify history, to propagate forgeries, and to cover up human rights abuses.” Scientology critics, myself included, have long argued that the U.S. government should follow the lead of other countries and at the very least revoke the Church’s tax-exempt status, if not take harsher measures against it for a variety of criminal activities. Lawrence Wright’s courageous investigation is a warrant to act.


An identification of the author as a critic of Scientology and a call for the US government to act!!

The Daily Beast Call To Arms!

scio ? - well, OSA INT & The Ecclesiastical Leader of the Worlds Fastest Growing religion - pulled it in.

So, no sympathy for those downstat pieces of ethics bait.

They need to some serious sec checks & ethics conditions before going to the RPF's RPF for 3 complete durations back-to-back.

Here's an article on Forbes.com
The Atlantic On That Scientology Advertorial: 'We Screwed Up'


Atlantic:
"We screwed up. It shouldn’t have taken a wave of constructive criticism — but it has — to alert us that we’ve made a mistake, possibly several mistakes. We now realize that as we explored new forms of digital advertising, we failed to update the policies that must govern the decisions we make along the way. It’s safe to say that we are thinking a lot more about these policies after running this ad than we did beforehand. In the meantime, we have decided to withdraw the ad until we figure all of this out. We remain committed to and enthusiastic about innovation in digital advertising, but acknowledge — sheepishly — that we got ahead of ourselves. We are sorry, and we’re working very hard to put things right."

Here's a good one! (Atlantic's OWN staff was pissed!) :biggrin:


Atlantic Staffers Rightly Offended by Sponsored Scientology Story
By Joe Coscarelli and Stefan Becket Today at 11:16 AM


Yesterday afternoon, the Atlantic posted a sponsored story titled "David Miscavige Leads Scientology to Milestone Year," purchased by the controversial church, highlighting "a milestone year for Scientology, with the religion expanding to more than 10,000 Churches, Missions and affiliated groups, spanning 167 nations — figures that represent a growth rate 20 times that of a decade ago." It was not journalism, but as an "advertorial" — clearly marked sponsored content that reads like a regular article — it looked something like it. The company's real writers were not pleased.


The decision on the part of the Atlantic to give a platform to Scientology and its leader, Miscavige — whose alleged abuses and questionable fund-raising tactics have been the subject of intense scrutiny over the past few years — sparked a furor on Twitter last night. Several Atlantic staffers vented their frustrations in public, with social media editor Chris Heller tweeting, "I am furious."


"I didn't know about it," wrote senior editor Alexis Madrigal. "Let me see what I can find out." James Fallows chimed in: "Thanks for asking! Yes, I have seen our 'sponsored' feature. I have things to say about it, but not tonight." And Jeffrey Goldberg not-so-subtly posted a glowing endorsement of a new book investigating Scientology, which was retweeted and reiterated by several other star writers, including Madrigal, Fallows, and Ta-Nehisi Coates.


Several hours later, the post was pulled, replaced with a statement by theAtlantic: "We have temporarily suspended this advertising campaign pending a review of our policies that govern sponsor content and subsequent comment threads." (Comments on the post were heavily moderated, requiring approval before being posted, unlike most content on the site.)


Editorial staffers were quick to blame the business side of the Atlantic for the embarrassment, claiming they were caught off guard by the post and the ensuing uproar. A source familiar with the matter tells Daily Intelligencer that the editorial staff at the Atlantic was "blindsided" by the debacle, leaving many in the newsroom "livid." This source described employees as "horrified" by the post

The Atlantic says "sorry" for the scientology advert

The Scientology Ad

We screwed up. It shouldn't have taken a wave of constructive criticism -- but it has -- to alert us that we've made a mistake, possibly several mistakes. We now realize that as we explored new forms of digital advertising, we failed to update the policies that must govern the decisions we make along the way. It's safe to say that we are thinking a lot more about these policies after running this ad than we did beforehand. In the meantime, we have decided to withdraw the ad until we figure all of this out. We remain committed to and enthusiastic about innovation in digital advertising, but acknowledge--sheepishly--that we got ahead of ourselves. We are sorry, and we're working very hard to put things right.


That ad was a mistake in both concept and execution. I am sorry that we ran it in the first place, which we and others will always remember as an error; but I think the quick response and forthright statement reflect the best parts of the magazine's tradition. I am saying all of this as a loyal and long-time Atlantic employee but as an observer of rather than participant in this recent drama. (That is, I had nothing to do with any part of this: the origin of the ad, the decision to pull it, or the drafting of this statement.) Every person and every institution makes mistakes. We've recognized, admitted, and tried to correct this one, and we'll do our best to learn from it.

On Thursday the 17th the Wright book will be released and it will be a nightmare for the cult, as Paul Haggis and Wright will appear on Rock Center that evening.

The question is, what can the cult do to distract from this or keep their members busy doing something else for a few days? I don't mean just Rock Center having the impact but all media outlets.

I think this ad might have been a little part of the plan but will they have Kirstie streaking on the roof of the Super Power building, or Tom Cruise helping someone change a tire on the freeway, to distract from the big news event?

Right now, with this ad removed, they could dangle that shiny thing about their free speech being violated, and try to get their membership worked up over it, but will they try that? One of the problems in the cult, is they have to plan their performances, celebrations and protests weeks in advance, and they haven't done anything that I know of. In other words, they can't rally the spirit or forces of Scientologists quickly enough to react to this tsunami of entheta that is headed their way. Will the VM's be called in? They are in that bind, that anything they do, like protesting at Wright's publisher, just draws more attention to their craziness.

The only thing they can do is have their OTs postulate for a national disaster to distract people from their cult disaster. It will be interesting to see what they try.:omg:

Readers Note: It is always important to include the phrase "on this planet" to any briefing in order to give the correct order of magnitude and much-needed gravitas to made up junk.

It will be interesting to see what they try.:omg:

I predict an OSA briefing for only staff and Sea Org members, informing them of how the Psych's are connected to not only the Atlantic ad being pulled, but to the Lawrence Wright book itself. (the author probably has a distant cousin who is a Psych ;)

They'll be briefed on the typical solution; have a special mandatory event for all scientologists, reg the hell out of them, squeezing whatever money they can get their hands on, so that these attacks by the Psych's can be handled. Millions of dollars will be regged and they'll add it to DM's slush fund and dedicate an entire issue of Freedom Mag to exposing the connection between Psych's and these latest events.

Then later they'll be told (again) how they're winning the war against the Psych's.

In other words, the usual handling.... :faceslap:
