Whilst I certainly don't like John Sweeney's outburst I do know how he felt ;-)
He says himself;
If you are interested in becoming a TV journalist, it is a fine example of how not to do it. I look like an exploding tomato and shout like a jet engine and every time I see it makes me cringe.
I apologised almost immediately, Tommy carried on as if nothing had happened but meanwhile Scientology had rushed off copies of me losing it to my boss, my boss's boss and my boss's boss's boss, the Director-General of the BBC.
I lost my voice, but not my mind.
This is the context Scientology will not tell you about. I have met too many good people who say Scientology was founded by a liar, L Ron Hubbard; that it attacks its critics without mercy; and the celebrities who endorse it have not the foggiest idea what it is really like.
But on the subject of scientology - it is utter rubbish. Why do I think so? What about claims of;
Aliens being nuked in volcano's 75m years ago?
Telepathic battles with Alien spirits?
Denial of any kind of mental illness or psychiatric problems?
Special super powers including a "sense of hunger", "sense of sensing" and "sense of gravity"?
