    How to read a tabloid magazine story about the Church of Scientology: A primer

    By Tony Ortega, The Underground Bunker

    Four years ago, we set out on this adventure to report about Scientology every day. And one of the results of that experiment is the amazing community that has built up around the Bunker. We set out to create a place where Scientology could be discussed, but without the wild rumors and mistaken myths that clog up so many other places. We wanted the facts, and we wanted them first.

    But even with that facts-first approach we’ve cultivated here, it’s understandable that there was some excitement yesterday when Star magazine put out a new issue with the headline “Tom Leaving Scientology!” on its cover. While some counseled caution, others were ready to have a parade for Tom Cruise getting out of the church.

    But does the Star actually have any facts to back up its cover headline? Let’s take a closer look. First, let’s review how tabloid publications tend to put together their stories on Scientology. They start with a tiny germ of an idea — a quote from someone, often someone they don’t really want to check out very carefully or it would spoil the fun — and then ask that person to speculate about what it is they’ve heard actually means. We’ve been on the other end of these conversations. We’ve had some small incremental piece of information, and the tabloid hacks on the other end of the line try to get us to say that what we’ve heard is actually indicative of something much bigger or even completely different. We don’t play that game. But others are happy to go along.

    Let’s see what happened in this case.

    As many publications have noticed, Tom Cruise has not exactly been a hands-on father to his daughter Suri, 9, his only biological issue. (He has two older children by adoption, Isabella, 22, and Connor, 20.) This has given rise to much speculation. We regularly field calls from reporters who ask us if Tom stays away from Suri because she’s been “declared” a “suppressive person,” in Scientology parlance. It’s not a bad question. But we don’t think that’s the case. After consulting with Mike Rinder, the former top international spokesman for Scientology and someone who knew David Miscavige as well as anyone, he agrees with us that Miscavige declaring Suri an SP is a remote possibility. More likely, Rinder points out, is that every time Tom is around Miscavige, the Scientology leader badmouths Katie Holmes and reinforces Tom’s reluctance to see his former wife and child.

    For whatever reason, Tom has not seen much of his daughter as she’s gone through some pretty crucial childhood years. Meanwhile, Tom has continued to give us reasons to believe that he’s still fully committed to Miscavige and the church, as we reported just a few months ago. (Also, it may be helpful to understand Tom’s deep commitment to David Miscavige and Scientology. If you haven’t already, you really should check out our two-part series about John Brousseau and his observations of Tom and Dave.)

    Now, the new development: Cruise actually got together with his kid. If that’s true, well, good for him. The Star then says it talked to an “insider.” (Uh-oh, this is tabloid parlance for someone who might actually be close to Tom, or could be a public relations person. Or someone who saw a Tom Cruise movie once. You just never know.)

    The insider claims that Tom was devastated to realize how much of his daughter’s life he was missing out on. “When she speaks to him on the phone, it’s becoming more and more like she’s talking to a stranger.” Well, that’s heartbreaking, if it’s true, and we would hope that Tom would be affected and do something about it. Like, you know, visit her more often.

    And here’s the thing. The “insider” clearly has no idea whether or not Tom is actually going to sever ties with Scientology, and the Star itself hedges its bets, saying that Tom “may soon part ways with the cultlike religion.”

    Cue the sad trombone: wah wah waaaaaaaah.

    But now that you know you’ve been had, it’s too late — you’ve paid your money based on the salacious cover headline, and only now do you realize that Star magazine doesn’t have the slightest idea whether Tom Cruise is actually leaving Scientology. In fact, Star magazine doesn’t have the slightest idea what Scientology is. All they know is that it’s a word that sells copies, and they love teasing readers with the idea that Tom is on his way out. They count on you not remembering, for example, that they said the exact same thing three years ago….

    All is not lost.
    I love that it brings up disconnection and that Scientlogy is the reason why he hasn't seen Suri more or less. Even if that is not the truth.
    It's still a big win in my eyes.
    Maybe Cruise will read it and a seed of doubt will be planted? Or maybe he will contact Bert and have them print a retraction per DM's orders.
    A cover like that still brings attention that Scientology = BAD. And that = GOOD :D
    It's like the Star went all "Freedom Mag" on Tom. How does it feel sucker?

    So you are saying that he would rather have people think that he is stepping away from his beloved cult which is a huge PR flap and not very good for recruitment, rather than having his movie flop? How and why would Miscavige agree to this? Regardless if Cruise is no longer the poster boy for the cult or not.
    Can their "bromance" be on the rocks"? :cool:

  22. Is there a new upcoming Hollywood star who is a scientologist?

    If DM has begun to favour ANOTHER it could be the reason for TC to start considering his future and using his daughter as an exit strategy might be his way of keeping Miscavige sweet for a time until he's out.
    He knows what happens when you leave, either quietly or otherwise you still get the treatment in the form of having your character dragged through the mud.
    If there is a single smidge of truth in it then he's carefully planning his every move while trying to protect himself.
    If the writing is on the wall for TC and he sees it times ahead are about to get very interesting indeed.
  23. RightOn Member

    not that I know of, but possibly Bob the whale Duggan is the new poster boy with the bucks and DM's new bromance IMO
  24. Yeah but Bob Duggan isn't likely to reciprocate in any bromance is he?

    Whereas Tom Cruise and Miscavige had something between them, and it was blatantly obvious from the photos where it was those two only in them.
    Look at them again the looks between them were expressing more than "just good friends".

    A newer younger version of Cruise could be the reason for him to worry, who knows but its a distinct possibility and one we can't ignore.
  25. RightOn Member

    maybe at first DM liked the idea of hobnobbing with Cruise until he jumped on that couch and then continued to bring the cult down. And even though he went on his honeymoon, I think things have now changed.
    DM is all about the money. It has been said that he made fun of Cruise all the time about what was in his PC folder. So "the looks" between them were probably one sided. I think Duggan is DM's new flavor for "fleecing".
    But who the hell knows with this freaking cult?

    and I don't think that DM cares if Duggan reciprocates with a bromance. The general public does not know who he is and DM only wants da money

    ''This is a perfect example of how the Internet turns things and twists things. There is no such thing in Scientology as Disconnection you Internet cyber-gossipers and hate mongerers. It's so untrue, it couldn't be further from the truth.''

    I'm saying that Tom no longer has the power to dictate to the movie backers how things are going to be. (BS about firing his insurance company over doing his own stunts aside.*)

    MI:5 is supposed to be a safe money-maker that pays for the turkeys, and he can't mess that up. Big-budget action films are his strength, but I don't think Oblivion and Edge of Tomorrow helped him much. If this tanks: fatsuit.

    Miscavige is probably gritting his teeth and swearing, but Tom really needs a quick PR-spin that he's pro-Suri and distancing himself from Scientology. It just has to last for a few weeks.

    * Although... if he dies near the end of filming, finish it with doubles and CGI and rake in a fortune as "Tom Cruise's last tragic movie". I'm sure someone made that calculation.

    Stupid Star article is stupid. They have TC leaving the cult so he can see one daughter, but fail to point out that if he does so he will not be able to see his other daughter or his son. I can't see DM bending disconnection rules if TC betrays him so badly as to leave. But, imho, all this is moot because I don't think TC really cares about anybody but himself. If TC wants to stay a big Hollywood being and has to leave the cult to do so, maybe he will, but it will have nothing to do with caring about his kid. Look how quick he caved in his last divorce.

    Tom Cruise’s Scientologist daughter Isabella to be Hollywood hair and make-up artist | Daily Mail Online
    • Isabella Cruise, 22, has graduated as a specialist hair and make-up artist
    • Attended the prestigious Delamar Academy of Make-Up and Hair in London
    • Friends are convinced she's going to Hollywood and will use her dad's connections to set up shop
    • She made a secret trip to Scientology Headquarters in Clearwater, Fla. in December
    Excerpt:

    Although Isabella’s circle of friends has changed slightly, she is still close to her Scientology friends in London, including wealthy families who live close to the Church’s HQ at Saint Hill, West Sussex and prominent members who are working at the Scientology center in central London.

    Isabella enjoys keeping out of the limelight and has quietly built her own career although she’s never wavered in her strong faith for the Church.

    Daily Mail Online can exclusively reveal that in December, Isabella traveled to Clearwater, Florida, the world headquarters for Scientology, which has over 60 buildings in town including the grand Flag Building, also known as the Super Powers Building.

    The Cruises have spent months at a time at Clearwater completing courses and being intensely 'audited'.

    When Isabella and brother Connor were younger, they would spend long stretches at 'Flag' while their father went up the ladder of courses to where he is today, which is at the very highest level, called 'Operating Thetan (OT) VIII'.

    Isabella likes to come to Clearwater, as it’s where a lot of her rich Scientology friends in London and Los Angeles go to complete their courses, which costs hundreds of thousands dollars. This time around, Isabella had her hair cut at her Scientology friend Sofia Sweet’s salon Labella.

    Isabella has a lot of catching up to do on her Scientology courses just like her brother Connor, who has only completed the Competency and Leadership course in 2010. Isabella achieved the Basic Study Manual ten years ago.

    Just three months after Isabella’s trip to Clearwater, Tom and Connor also headed over to Florida. Tom would be keen for both Isabella and Connor to do more courses especially as they've spent years of their lives based in Clearwater.

    Tony Ortega, who runs the anti-Scientology website The Underground Bunker, says that the children’s lack of courses is common in Scientology celebrity offspring. It doesn't mean they are lacking in faith, but often have other things going on in their lives.

    Tony says: 'Bella's lack of Scientology completions, that doesn't surprise me. Second generation Scientologists, particularly the children of celebrities, often turn out to be very casual about their involvement in Study Tech. They are Scientologists to the core, but they don't bother with the Bridge or going up levels. Isabella may be taking courses in Clearwater, but I would say just being there has as much to do with identity as anything else. A gung-ho Scientologist who joined as an adult may feel that he or she has a lot to prove to show their commitment, so they'll do every level and volunteer in other ways. But the child of a Scientology celebrity? They have nothing to prove. They're Scientology royalty, and no ethics officer would dare get aggressive with Bella or Connor about taking courses. I've noticed it with other second-generation Scientology celebrities. They tend to have few course completions. Many of them aren't even Clear.'

    Mission Impossible: To Distance Tom Cruise from Scientology Before Blockbuster Opens

    By Roger Friedman, Showbiz411

    Greetings Mr. Phelps. Your mission, if you choose to accept it: distance Tom Cruise in the public eye from the cult of Scientology before the $200 million “Mission Impossible 5: Rogue Nation” hits theaters on July 31st.

    Tom Cruise leaving Scientology? Not on your life. But someone is orchestrating a media campaign to make people think the “Mission Impossible” star is bravely choosing his 9 year old daughter Suri over the group depicted as crazy and creepy in the HBO doc “Going Clear.”

    The doc was so damaging in portraying Cruise as a nutty robot who ordered the bugging of Nicole Kidman that again someone – Cruise himself, his reps – is trying to change the conversation.

    It started with supermarket tabloid The Star. Strangely, both Esquire and Redbook – Hearst magazine websites – then quoted The Star. The lemming like Hollywood Reporter turned it into a video report. The gist? That Cruise, who hasn’t seen Suri in almost two years, will leave Scientology because the cult won’t let Cruise be involved with her.

    Hogwash.

    Cruise isn’t leaving. He’s so embedded in Scientology, a minor thing like not seeing a 9 year old girl isn’t going to pry him away. Over the years he’s involved his entire family – sisters, mother, adopted children, nieces etc – in the cult. To leave would mean something akin to removing US forces in their entirety from every foreign outpost. Not happening.

    And why isn’t Cruise talking to Suri? Well, Suri and her mother, actress Katie Holmes, have been “disconnected” from Cruise by Scientology. They are enemies. Cruise cut Kidman off the same way, and cut her off from their adopted kids.

    Last year, Holmes moved from New York to Los Angeles to try and get closer to Cruise geographically for Suri’s sake. It didn’t work. Now Holmes is living in New York again with Suri as she prepares to direct her first film for Tribeca Productions.

    The timing of it all couldn’t be better: Holmes is in pre-production to start shooting the first week of August. Cruise is coming to New York the last week of July to promote “Mission Impossible 5.” They are all descending on the same point at the same time. Who will be the first brave person on the red carpet to ask Cruise if he’ll see his daughter while he’s in town? What possible explanation could he have to keep ignoring her?

    More importantly, where is all this Tom is leaving Scientology crap coming from? Last fall, Cruise was photographed wearing his Scientology Freedom from Sanity medal at the group’s UK gathering. Sources who monitor Scientology in general say Cruise has never been deeper into the group or more behind his BFF David Miscavige, the group’s leader.

    Star, Esquire, Redbook, Hollywood Reporter – who’s next to pick up this phony baton? Wait and see.

    Hey, Star magazine, why is Tom Cruise afraid of Aussie journo Bryan Seymour?

    By Tony Ortega, The Underground Bunker

    Back on July 2, your proprietor asked his colleagues for some help. Star magazine had announced that Tom Cruise was leaving Scientology, and we thought it was awfully convenient for the story to come out just a few weeks before the press circus around Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation starts up. Now, with so many other media outlets repeating the Star’s fact-free story like it was gospel, entertainment reporters would be off the hook, and wouldn’t have to hit Tom with tough questions about Alex Gibney’s documentary Going Clear.

    For fun, since we assumed Star had been played by Tom’s PR people, we asked a few fellow reporters to help us compile a list of tough questions that reporters should ask Cruise when he finally makes himself available in advance of the movie.

    No one sent us better questions than our friends Down Under, Australian television journalists Steve Cannane and Bryan Seymour.

    Here are just the first three questions Seymour sent over:

    — What do you say to the female Scientologists forced to have abortions?
    — What did you know about Scientology bugging your ex-wife Nicole while you were together?
    — Did David Miscavige ever assault you as he has dozens of Scientologists?

    Whew, that’s good stuff. But can you imagine the cream puffs who work at Entertainment Tonight hitting Tom with this stuff? Yeah, neither can we.

    Anyway, imagine our surprise when Bryan emailed us last night, letting us know that his country’s biggest newspaper, The Australian, had written a story explaining that Paramount Pictures, in advance of the movie, has let Channel 7 know that the one journalist on their roster Tom Cruise will not talk to is Bryan Seymour!

    “This was a direct request, I was told, from Tom’s people,” Bryan tells us. “This was entirely unprovoked and was done without a request made by me or the network for access to Tom. They simply didn’t want to take any chance that I would end up standing in front of Cruise asking questions.”

    And if you know Bryan’s history of coverage, you can imagine why Tom’s people are terrified of him. Back when Tommy Davis was still trying to handle the media for Scientology, he underestimated Seymour and gave him amazing access to Scientology’s facilities and its celebrities. Unguarded, Nancy Cartwright, a Scientology celebrity and voice of Bart Simpson, told Bryan on camera that the reason she follows the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard is so that she can become a god.

    Bryan has also done hard-hitting coverage in his home country, exposing the abuse of young Scientologists, for example.

    “‘Mission Impossible’ is how I would describe the efforts of countless Australians disconnected from their daughters and sons, siblings and parents still inside Scientology. I can introduce some of these people to Tom so he can hear first-hand the facts of the injustices with which they have been treated. I am certain Senator Nick Xenophon would also like to meet Tom,” Bryan says. “Let’s hope other reporters who are approved to speak with Tom have the wherewithal to ask Cruise some questions he is long overdue to answer. We can handle the truth.”

    But hang on, we told Bryan. The Star recently told us that Tom Cruise has left Scientology. If that’s the case, why would Paramount Pictures want to keep you from asking him questions about a church he no longer belongs to?

    “Great question. That would be because he has not left. He is, in fact, deeply enmeshed with Scientology and his best friend forever David Miscavige,” Bryan answered. “As you and others have pointed out, Tom Cruise remains devoted to the cult that holds his deepest secrets, gives him medals and awards, fetes his every move and treats him like a god among men. Sadly, it seems he’s not ready to give that up for a life in the real world with his loved ones, including his daughter Suri. That said, I think it is inevitable Tom will leave Scientology – sooner or later he’ll realize the single blend he’s sipping with Dave is really Kool-Aid and, like Paul Haggis, Mike Rinder, Marty Rathbun, Jason Beghe and many others, he’ll reach the point where there just isn’t any compelling reason to stay in.”

    EXCLUSIVE: Inside Tom Cruise's 'Scientology CNN' TV network and film company - set to launch from a new $50 million Hollywood studio that will rival Paramount
    • Scientology and Tom Cruise plan to take on the major movie studios and TV networks with the creation of Scientology Media Productions
    • The five-acre studio lot has two sound stages and 150,000 square feet of production facilities
    • Sea Org workers are being paid a few dollars a day to help renovate the Sunset Blvd site
    • A new set of audition tapes for the woman who will replace Katie Holmes in Cruise's life are set to be held here
    • Scientology boasts its new network will 'reach everyone on Earth'
    • The church wants to influence Cruise's films as it did on Days of Thunder and Far And Away
    The Church of Scientology is starting a TV news network being dubbed 'Scientology's CNN' in a brand new $50 million Hollywood studio. And it's being built by being built by 50-cent an hour workers, claim former Scientologists familiar with the project.

    While all the buzz last week was that Scientology's biggest star was leaving the church, Daily Mail Online can reveal that nothing could be further from the truth. Scientology and Tom Cruise plan to take on the major movie studios and the TV networks and cable stations with the creation of Scientology Media Productions on Sunset Boulevard in the heart of Hollywood.

    The new studio will also be used to make 'propaganda' movies to recruit more followers while Cruise himself is set to film his Hollywood blockbusters at the glittering base, which has facilities that are set to rival Paramount studios.

    Scientology bosses may even use the new studios to attract budding Hollywood actresses to audition to be Tom's new girlfriend.

    The Church of Scientology has vehemently denied claims made that Tom Cruise auditioned a host of Hollywood beauties including Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Alba, Lindsay Lohan and Kate Bosworth to be his wife before settling on Katie Holmes.

    The impressive complex, revealed in these Daily Mail Online photographs for the first time, is built by the Church's Sea Org recruits, who are paid only a few dollars a day, according to two former members, who identified the tell-tale blue uniforms.

    According to the Church, the colossal studio complex in Los Angeles will reach 'virtually every person on Earth' and is now only months away from completion.

    Former Scientology member and assistant to leader David Miscavige, Sinar Parman, said: 'CNN covers anything and everything, it's their version of CNN, but who wants to watch that stuff?'

    Previously, Scientology TV and movie studio work was done at its main HQ Gold Base in Hemet, 60 miles outside Los Angeles in the desert.

    The new 'Scientology Media Productions' center is only a short 12-mile hop from Cruise's West Hollywood mansion and will be bigger than any major Tinseltown studio including Universal and Paramount.

    Mission Impossible? Tom Cruise Film Isn’t Finished Yet, Won’t Be Til Next Week

    By Roger Friedman, Showbiz411

    The folks who saw “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation” last night in LA and NY didn’t see a finished film. I’m told that Christopher McQuarrie allowed a version to be shown missing a finished scene. The scene shows Tom Cruise underwater holding his breath.

    “The special effects aren’t finished yet,” says a source. “They’ll be done right before the movie premieres next Thursday in Vienna.”

    It’s not surprising, considering that “Rogue Nation” is opening five months early. It was originally on Paramount’s schedule for Christmas Day. But the studio wanted to get it out of the way of the new Star Wars and James Bond movies.

    Meanwhile, Variety reports that advance tracking for “Rogue Nation” is “soft.” They’re now saying it could have a $40 million opening weekend on July 31st. That would be a huge disappointment for Paramount. But Cruise has never been a big opener, and his movies — with the exception of the “Mission Impossible” franchise usually struggle to hit $100 million total.

    Compounding his problems is that as time goes by, Cruise is better known as a nut who belongs to Scientology than as a movie star. The average 20 year old was around 10 when Cruise was jumping on Oprah’s couch and fighting with Matt Lauer. Plus, HBO’s “Going Clear” documentary paints him as sort of crazy.

    But Cruise works his magic at premieres, especially in Europe. He still sells like crazy in foreign countries, particularly South Korea and Russia, where Scientology isn’t a big deal. They just want movie stars. And once people hear the “Mission Impossible” theme music, that’s usually a positive trigger.
