Mercury News, Quit the Bigoted Rumormongering

You will be the undeserving subject of ridicule someday. It will feel unfair. You will wonder why anyone could get away with lying about you. Then perhaps you will recognize that, as a news source, you’ve done the same thing to others.

Dear Ms. Ross,

Question: Who reads an anti-Scientologist’s blog and forwards the vitriol?

Answer: A bigot or a sucker (maybe both).

Having written your article, there’s no possible way you could have used your own pair of eyes to see what Scientology is really about.

You will be the undeserving subject of ridicule someday. It will feel unfair. You will wonder why anyone could get away with lying about you. Then perhaps you will recognize that, as a news source, you’ve done the same thing to others.

I suggest you quit rumormongering. The day will come when you’re the target.

Best,
