Online Video Reignites Tom Cruise Media Storm - 2008-01-15
Mr. Cruise, in short, has never had a pulpit like this, and judging by the efforts of his church to remove the video from YouTube and other online video sites, neither does he seek one. The video was apparently meant for Scientologists only, though a call to the church's press office was not returned.
Undeterred by legal troubles, several sites have re-posted the video anyway, including The New York Post and Gawker, which vowed to stand its ground. "It's newsworthy," Nick Denton wrote. "And we will not be removing it."
