Scientology reveals a lot more of its lofty plans for the former KCET studios

KCETWe’ve been curious about what Scientology was going to do with the old KCET studios in Los Angeles since they bought the complex back in 2011. It’s now under renovation, and we’re getting more and more information about what Scientology leader David Miscavige thinks he’s going to do with it.

Now, Scientology has put out a website with a lot more detail about the new plans, and we thought we’d excerpt some of the more relevant parts of it, for informational purposes.

Of course, there’s no surprise that the main reason for this new “global” media center is to, naturally, spread L. Ron Hubbard’s holy scripture, Dianetics and Scientology…



And of course, the usual front groups with their pretend efforts in good works in drug abuse prevention, anti-psychiatric fearmongering, and “human rights” will get flogged here as well…


While Scientology’s cutting-edge Internet efforts will reach every human being on earth!


CCHR documentaries, “news stories,” and other faux fare will get filmed here. But former Scientology spokesman Mike Rinder has pointed out that they had the capacity to do all of these things already at their elaborate studios in Hemet. Why duplicate the studio space?


An entire wing for visual effects?


Miscavige’s obsession with detail is plain. And Scientology says it will have the ability to deliver directly to cable systems — but who’s going to want their stuff?

Ah, and what would it be without a pitch for donations? Get out your wallets, kids!
