Today, leaked documents on 'Why We Protest' (WWP) Anonymous website, detail a 3 page demand letter, dated March 5, 2014, to have "the article taken down immediately and a correction be issued to confirm that neither Narconon nor the Church were responsible for, in any way, Ms. Gasparini's death."

Scientology Media Wars

WireService.ca Media Release (03/07/2014) - Beverly Hills Lawyer, Anthony Michael Glassman, representing 'Church of Scientology International' and 'Narconon International' states the article "Narconon drug rehab - a sister goes public today about tragic death" is offensive, and "crosses the line of distasteful to actionable by falsely accusing the Church and Narconon of criminal negligence."

The original story was first submitted to, and published on March 1, 2014, by 'wireservice.ca' with story title: "Scientology Narconon drug rehab negligent care and death"

It was later submitted and published on the 'Examiner' and on 'PRLOG' as "Narconon deaths inside and out - sister speaks out."

Lawyer, Anthony Michael Glassman, takes issue with the article content:

"Scientology is worse than many think and their Narconon drug rehabs are dangerous and deadly above what most could ever imagine -- indeed, an "Industry of Death."

AND -

"Greed for the mighty dollar and "still in program Stats" sent to Scientology every Thursday by 2 PM are more important that patient safety and well-being in many cases such as this."

AND -

"Even though Arlene was diagnosed with Hepatitis C and high liver enzyme counts, eventually she was sent into the Sauna Purification. Greed for the mighty dollar and "still in program Stats" sent to Scientology every Thursday by 2 PM are more important that patient safety and well-being in many cases such as this."

Additional objections about 'content' can be viewed here on a 'Why We Protest' forum website.

Lawyer, Anthony Michael Glassman, states: "Mr. Love's hatred of the Church and Narconon and his unreliability, are well-documented …" AND "Meanwhile, all legal options are being considered, especially given the Church's and Narconon's ability to establish malice in light of Mr. Love's bias."

Scientology is well known for their practice and 'Policy' to harass and intimidate media and journalists:

"The purpose of the suit is to harass and discourage rather than to win. The law can be used very easily to harass, and enough harassment on somebody who is simply on the thin edge anyway, well knowing that he is not authorized, will generally be sufficient to cause his professional decease. If possible, of course, ruin him utterly." - L. Ron Hubbard, A MANUAL ON THE DISSEMINATION OF MATERIAL, 1955

This same Lawyer, Anthony Michael Glassman, representing the Church of Scientology International, filed a complaint against "Vanity Fair" on August 13, 2012, regarding a story on Tom Cruise and the Church, "What Katie Didn't Know"

Excerpt from story:

"Tom Cruise was in a state because he didn't have a girl. "Can you believe my sister can't even get me a girlfriend?" he said to David Miscavige, the chief of the Church of Scientology International, as Miscavige joined him and Cruise's sister Lee Anne DeVette at the opening of the Madrid Scientology center, in September 2004."

The fall-out from this caused "Vanity Fair" to hit back with another story:

"It's War! Church Of Scientology Calls Vanity Fair Writer 'Bigot' Over Tom Cruise Controversy"

Excerpt from Vanity Fair story:

"The allegations she forwards are akin to asking the Pope if he threw poison in the wine before failing to bless the Holy Communion during the Easter service. Your apostate sources know that is the nature of what they are insinuating and Ms. Orth, who hasn't the vaguest clue about the practice of Scientology, has been duped into forwarding their anti-Scientology agenda."

Concerning the story: "Narconon drug rehab - a sister goes public today about tragic death" and the Lawyer, Anthony Michael Glassman's demand letter dated, March 5, 2014, two confidential sources from the Scientology critic community wrote on March 6th & 7th:

"He would not win a lawsuit based on the article. Glassman is like Tom Cruise's attorney, Bert Fields (and the same age of 74) - all smoke & hot air."

"Most threats are toothless - they have not sued media in 14 years."
