The Church of Scientology has launched a full-scale assault on a new HBO documentary about the controversial religious sect, specifically targeting its Oscar-winning director and claiming that his late father - an acclaimed journalist - published CIA propaganda.

In more than 200 tweets, the church has tried to discredit Alex Gibney and his sources in 'Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief', which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last month.

It has also issued a statement on the website of Freedom Magazine, its news publication, claiming the documentary is 'propaganda', 'one-sided', full of 'false information' and features 'vengeful' sources.
