I just saw a piece tonight on Extra on NBC that promotes the Detoxification Program that Tom Cruise pushed on the workers at Ground Zero. Mario Lopez unabashedly praised the program and L. Ron Hubbard. Supposedly there's a site on the Extratv.com website where people can donate money to the Detox Program, but I couldn't find it. I am shocked and disappointed my favorite network NBC would allow Extra to promote such a dangerous and criminal front group for scientology. Is it possible that NBC fell for the hype and didn't do their research before broadcasting? Or was Extra paid a LOT of money from scientology to promote their front group for Narconon? I'm going to watch Extra again later tonight and look for it again.

Did a little research and it was a benefit held in LA to support the New York Rescue Workers and Gulf Coast Detoxification Projects. Danny Masterson and Melanie Griffith were celebrities who attended, and were interviewed by Extra to explain their support of the projects. I guess Extra was just doing its job of reporting the activities of celebrities, scientology or not. But they did enourage people to donate to the fund at the end of the piece.

So I guess cult that panders to and recruits celebrities + cult's fundraisers that showcase these celebrities = reporting by shows like Extra that are forced to report the activities of these celebrities as they attend the fundraisers. O.K. I forgive Extra, but I still don't think they had the right to proselytize this cult's front group to the public without doing any research or background checks. Is Extra really that naive/slow/stupid or all they all scientologists?

The Church of Scientology secretly had their "Detoxification Program" tested by independent doctors to "prove" it was effective. Of course, all the people involved had to sign very strict secrecy bonds. Only the church could release the results.

Predictably, after the testing was completed and the final results sent to the church, the church filed it away in the deepest, darkest corners they could find.

The results showed that Scientology's vaunted "Detoxification Program" Did. Not. Work. At. All.

Naturally, the church keeps promoting and selling this program and still claims it is 100% effective -- and they have the proof that it doesn't work.

I remember reading about that. I would call them a bunch of shameless frauds, but calling them that and calling them Scientologists would be redundant.
