We hear that soon, NBC's Rock Center is going to do yet another hard-hitting episode about Scientology and its drug rehab network, Narconon.

That will be four big programs by the NBC show in the last year: One on ex-church executives Marty Rathbun and Mike Rinder, an initial show about deaths at the Narconon facility in Oklahoma, the Paul Haggis/Lawrence Wright special, and now another look at Narconon's woes. In the meantime, Disney-owned ABC can't seem to get out of the gate. As we've pointed out before, ABC's 20/20 and Nightline have recorded hours and hours of footage for shows that just end up getting spiked by the network's lily-livered attorneys. (From CBS, all we hear are crickets.)

But now ABC's news division is really going to have a hard time living down the shame, as the network finally has taken a swing at Scientology and its leader David Miscavige — through its long-running soap opera, General Hospital.
