CNN’s Anderson Cooper and “AC360″ launch a week-long series tonight titled “Scientology: A History of Violence,” which examines Church of Scientology leadership and allegations of violence within the organization.
TVNewser hears that “AC360″ and CNN have already heard from Scientology lawyers and Cooper blogged about receiving numerous accusatory emails from church members:
Given that the emails are all very similar in content, I assume this is some sort of organized email campaign. None of those writing the emails have seen the series, but I appreciate hearing from all concerned viewers, and I certainly understand any church member, of any religion, being concerned about the portrayal of their beliefs.
