Cults and the press - strange bedfellows, certainly

Townhall.com :: Columns :: Soft on the stars' scientology by Brent Bozell:

"Many people believe, as I do, that Scientology is a cult, an oppressive organization that splits families and milks believers for every cent they can muster. But to entertainment journalists, Scientology is about as harmless as scuba diving. As Us Weekly's Katrina Szish explained on CBS last month, Katie Holmes 'has embraced Tom's religion, and she really declared that she's becoming a Scientologist. So now they have that in common. So check that off. They also say that they love scuba diving, so that's a fun thing they have in common.'

Celebrity 'journalism' really isn't journalism at all. It's more a form of hero worship. Celebrity journalism is to real journalism what Scientology is to religion."
