Paul Haggis: Marty Rathbun is using private info I gave him against Lawrence Wright - 2017-06-17
In the latest video that Mark "Marty" Rathbun posted to his website as part of his general attack on Lawrence Wright and his 2013 book Going Clear, Rathbun calls Wright's book a "phony narrative," and accuses Wright of deceiving readers about the way that director Paul Haggis came to investigate and leave the Church of Scientology. Rathbun claims that he deserves credit for putting Haggis on that path, which is left out of the book.
Paul Haggis tells us that Rathbun is right about that, and Rathbun does deserve credit — but that it was Paul's own decision to keep that from Wright.
Last night, we described to Haggis what Rathbun had said in his latest video ("Going Clear, Part 15"), about Wright omitting Rathbun's role, and a claim about Haggis asking Rathbun to hold back something about his daughters.
