So why would Rupert Murdoch tempt fate and brazenly bait Scientology and its golden boy Tom Cruise?

Murdoch wasn't just a media proprietor; he also ran a movie studio, which could financially benefit from keeping one of Hollywood's most bankable stars onside.

What wasn't reported at the time was that Murdoch had a long history of going after Scientology. His views on what he called a "very weird cult" were formed more than 50 years previously, and can be found inside the fading pages of a muckraking Australian scandal sheet he published long before he became a global media player.
