Scientologists In Row With BBC

The Church Of Scientology is currently engaged in a row with the BBC, a result of an investigation by reporter John Sweeney. Sweeney is investigating the Church Of Scientology, trying to judge changes in the organisation over the last few years; He’s trying to discover if they’ve moved away from the questionable practices and secrecy they have employed in the past. The conflict centres around a YouTube video posted by the scientologists. It shows Sweeney losing his temper with a scientology spokesman. Sweeney’s outburst came at the end of a tour of a scientology exhibition which attempts to portray psychiatrists as evil nazi type torturers entitled Psychiatry: Industry of Death which is both gruesome and utterly unconvincing. The BBC appears willing to stand behind its reporter, in spite of the pressure brought to bear by the scientologist organisation — via Slashdot
