Scientology slimes 'Aftermath' guest with its favorite tactic: The P.O.W. video - 2019-01-09
Pouw's letter took some fairly weak jabs at the episode's featured guests — Mark and Stephanie Fladd, who lost a house after Mark paid $35,000 for a "Clear" package that he didn't complete; Tyler Adams, who lost an eye working in Scientology's Sea Org; Heather Ruggeri, whose mother had an inheritance sucked away through Scientology's vampiric fundraising pressure; and Carol Nyburg, whose job it was to apply that kind of extortionate pressure.
The letter may have been weak, but Scientology also included one of its slimiest strategies: what we usually call a "P.O.W. video," recorded by a Scientology member who looks like they are talking with about as much genuine volition as a prisoner of war under the gun.
