Elisabeth Moss snows another reporter about Scientology, but this one really hurts - 2019-09-06
It's getting very frustrating to see otherwise competent journalists let Elisabeth Moss get away with murder in interviews. Marlow Stern at the Daily Beast is no pushover, and he at least asked Moss more than one question about her involvement in Scientology. But she gave him three non-answers that amounted to nothing, and it irked us that Stern's editors then claimed that the Daily Beast had a huge exclusive with Moss "opening up" about Scientology.
Well, no, not really. And it's happened again, with a new piece in the London Sunday Times, a newspaper with a legendary reputation, in a lengthy interview with the Handmaid's Tale actress this weekend.
Interviewer Chrissy Iley hardly raised the issue of Moss's portrayal in The Handmaid's Tale being at odds with her involvement in an organization that was investigated by the FBI for labor trafficking and that for decades forced young women to have abortions so they could keep working 112-hour weeks.
