The Church of Scientology has launched a campaign against Anderson Cooper for his coverage of controversies surrounding the church. The church has released a glossy magazine on Cooper entitled “History of Lies.”
The magazine accused Cooper of speaking only to “Anti-Scientology apostates” and that “Larry King was the only CNN host qualified to interview the Scientology leader.”

The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
Good for him……
I read that story and my first thought about this morning was “I wish George (Carlin) had lived long enough to see this.” He’d have laughed his ass off.
BTW:Now some of those who were sued and lost can tell us how they really feel:
FCC Swearing Policy Tossed By Federal Court
Putting aside my belief, one, that the Church of Scientology should be renamed the Tom Cruise Church of Scientology, and two, that the word ‘scientology’ strikes me as being very much a cousin to the word ‘truthiness,’ it seems to me that any institution extended nonprofit tax status should exercise its rights of free speech with due deliberation.
Not to say that institutions claiming to be religious should not be extended the same rights of free speech as anyone else; just that we have here the Church of Scientology claiming that the only person qualified to interview a Scientology leader is Larry King (why that is mystifies me), which carries a subtle message that all but Larry King should silence themselves.
“Perhaps that is the reason they are so successfully sued all the time under restrictions that eliminate admission of guilt by CNN for their crimes.”
CNN has been quite accurate with their airings of AC. He’s top of the heap for accuracy, imo. Not so much with other CNN shows like Nancy Grace, or Jane Valez-Mitchell, or even the new replacement show upcoming of NG (can’t remember her name right now), or other shows on CNN. Why CNN allows so many drunks and drug-users, (unlike AC), is beyond all reasonable sense. CNN even has had to make updated contractual-agreement changes to keep those drunks and pill-poppers. Makes no sense. Perhaps that is the reason they are so successfully sued all the time under restrictions that eliminate admission of guilt by CNN for their crimes.
