For years we've pointed out the dishonest tabloid formula that gets used again and again in stories about Scientology: The publication promises a huge bombshell on the cover but when you turn to the story inside, it's almost always just another clip job with breathless expressions of amazement about how incredible it would be if Tom Cruise left Scientology or reunited with Suri or whatever the MacGuffin is this time.

In this case, the delusion is that Tom has some regrets about Scientology and his breakups with Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes, and wouldn't it be awesome if he were to go public with it all?

Of course there is no "tell-all" from Cruise himself. In fact, the only quotes in the story from him are from decade-old articles in other publications.
