BEST OF THE DECADE: Scientology watching's biggest 2010s hits at the Underground Bunker - 2019-12-30
Tomorrow we're going to finish up our look back at the wild year that was 2019, but it's not every day that you're staring down the barrel of a new decade, and so we thought we ought to say something about the 2010s and what these years have meant for Scientology Watching.
When 2010 started, we were still reeling from the Anonymous movement and how it had made Scientology such a hot story again. We were scrambling to find great stories at the Village Voice, and we knew the church was in big trouble after a whole raft of former top executives had gone public with their defections and what things were really like inside the top echelons of the controversial church.
Since then, wow, what a lot of great stories we've had the privilege of covering both at the Voice and here at our own website, which started its existence in 2012. Looking back, these are the milestones that made this such a dynamite decade for keeping tabs on L. Ron Hubbard's odd invention and its current caretaker, David Miscavige.
