It could have been much less balanced. It could have, for instance, ridiculed the reincarnation beliefs, or dwelt on Mrs. Hubbard's arrest. It could have talked about the legal troubles in France and Australia, and the people who have been given unrealistic promises. It could have depicted the church's secrecy and security concerns as paranoid.

Since it didn't emphasize these things, it was probably fair reporting. -- Don D.C.Lindsay Carnegie Mellon Robotics Institute
