Scientologists Made a Mock New Yorker Magazine


Members of the Church of Scientology spent the morning outside the Condé Nast building handing out free copies of the Eustace Tilley–teasing issue of their new magazine Freedom, which comes complete with a DVD and the headline: “The New Yorker: What a Load of Balderdash.” The mag is Scientology’s rebuttal (see scans here) to a feature by Lawrence Wright exposing the church’s nastiness, which came out six months ago. To be fair, the article did clock in at around 24,000 loaded words and making a magazine takes time. Nonetheless, Scientology should probably invest in a blog.
