Re: Report of OSA at CNN w/Freedom Mag OK, I read the entire Freedom Watch issue on their website last night. I am an Anon. I must say that it was sorta interesting to me to hear their take on the entire situation as of late. What kinda made me scratch my chin is seeing what info they claim to have on the Rinder, Rathburn and DeVocht, especially. (I like Jeff Hawkins and think he is in a league of his own in terms of being truly sincere, and they did not really have any compelling argument, at all, imo as far as he is concerned. And I like him.) To get back to the "Posse" as the other dudes may refer to themselves?? It cracks me up, because for whatever concerns some have about Martay trying to do a Co$ part II with his Indie movement, they just totally shit all over his credibility. LOL. Saint Martay just may have a harder time trying to censor the criticism of him, and will have to answer for his past actions when he was in a position of power. The story from the ex wife of DeVocht talking about her (ex) husband stealing hundreds of dollars from her grandmother on their wedding day is pretty bad, and spending 100 grand of her inheritance monies behind her back is quite seriously shady as well. And, for Christie Colbrian, at a time of vulnerability, reaching out to Marty and getting set up by him with Rinder, who has a daughter around the same age...that, too is pretty slimy. They had a funny cartoon image of Mike Rinder as Rip Van Winkle, as he was notorious for sleeping on the job. (maybe it is related to some sort of untreated medical condition he has, combined with the intense pressure. ??)...passing off unwanted jobs to underlings is quite common in Co$, and for shitty managers for that matter. It is interesting that Freedom was trying to make the point that since they had supposedly fired these guys, that things have been so much better, and have had no problems... They failed to mention the trial in France, The Senate inquiry in Australia, the mass exodus of formerly devoted members leaving in droves, and the general dwindling numbers. I think that Freedom mag had some points about leaving out some details in the interviews which could have affected the perception of these guys...but there is only so much time. Who knows, perhaps Andersen Cooper or another television journalist could do another series where he may take some of the Church's affidavits into account and serve as an objective moderator to some more open discussion of these matters. To be fair, they could also really talk about Fair Game and what happens in the video recorded audio sessions and coercion to make all kinds of self-incriminating statements which they have to sign under a great deal of duress. And if David Miscavige is really serious, he will come on the show and sit for an interview, with the understanding that he cannot control or direct the moderator as far as what topics will be discussed or what questions will be asked. This is a really big subject to cover, and one could not possibly expect everything to be covered in a week's worth of small segments. Basically, I actually think that Freedom Mag publishing this and trying to raise their own shitstorm is a good development, and it could bring broader attention to the public and hopefully round up enough outrage from folks here in the States to tell the IRS to go get 'em and take away the tax exempt status. Cheers to Anonymous. Their fight is now totally internalized.
