I have to say that Tony Ortega hit it out of the park this morning. Not only did he publish evidence of probable criminal activity and cover up by members of the Church of Scientology in the Danny Masterson case, but he also produced Dani Lemberger, who said…

Yesterday, to mark the occasion of the US premier of Louis Theroux’s “My Scientology Movie”, Tony Ortega printed a small snippet from the testimony of an obscure Scientology lawsuit going on in Tel Aviv Israel, translated from the Hebrew. Tony brags that “those who speculated that Rathbun had secretly settled will be feeling justifiably smug […]
When the President of the United States gets most of his news and information from Brietbart and Fox, and not from the information gathering services that the US has to inform the president and other leaders in our government, then you have skewed and pitched ideas filling the heads of people who need the best […]
The main thing wrong with Scientology is that you might end up disconnecting from someone in your family? After all this time, is that all we’ve got?
Maybe it’s me. Maybe I can’t count. Or read. But in the pdf file on scribd which Tony Ortega represented as “the full court transcripts”, I count way over 100 pages missing from this document – following the original court page numbering. Here’s how Tony Ortega represented this document to his readers this morning If […]
Bizarrely, Tony Ortega continues to try to silence and discredit this woman. I tweeted the posts Fiona and others made to the Underground Bunker after they found out Ortega had called Fiona a “vicious hate-monger” in an attempt to discredit her to his readers. He deleted their comments to keep anyone from being able to […]
Alanzo was involved in Scientology for 16 years. He reached the state of “Clear” and was on staff as an Executive Director and Course Supervisor in Scientology missions in the Midwest and Los Angeles. When Alanzo had experienced enough in Scientology to see the extent to which he had been deceived, he left and immediately […]
Karen de la Carrier, the former “Queen of Scientology”, tries to suppress criticism of Tony Ortega by deeming it “OSA Program”. Should we all just get in line and do what we’re told now?
Tony Ortega recently repeated (twice) that an Ex-Scientologist who got themselves involved in Scientology did so during a “vulnerable” part of their lives. It’s a frequent and superficial claim made about a multitude of individuals who get themselves involved in all kinds of cults, not just Scientology. It’s becoming quite the stereotype. Here’s what Tony […]
Does Karen De La Carriere pay money to Tony Ortega and Chris Shelton to post what she wants?
In my opinion, Tony Ortega’s continued use of his blog to attack Cathy Tweed very much crosses the line of ethical journalism. And Rachel Bernstein’s use of her standing as a licensed psychologist to publicly shame a mother who has lost her daughter to suicide is, quite possibly, a breach of her license.
Ugh. Freedom Media and Ethics has put out another video on Tony Ortega linking him with the infamous BackPage.com and discussing how his paycheck at the Village Voice was created through their money-making efforts. They also show how he defended BackPage.com and the way it made money for him. But I thought Tony Ortega was […]
@KellyKels_Melbs is an important critic of Scientology whose work has appeared on Leah Remini’s Scientology and the Aftermath. And so it was astonishing to me when Kels reached out to me on Twitter to tell me about yet another bullying incident by Tony Ortega of her in the Supporters of Leah Remini’s Facebook group: Kels […]
Sheeple. An actual mathematical formula for them. I’m not kidding. I think Carl Sagan wrote about it once: Ask Neil Degrasse Tyson. It describes a fundamental property of all human groups: not just Scientists and Scientologists. As social animals, human beings set up rules, both tacit and expressed, to coordinate their efforts in pursuit of […]
