Scientology CNN is a news network reportedly being developed by the Church of Scientology and Tom Cruise. The TV news network call a $50 million Hollywood studio home.
The Church of Scientology news network studio is being constructed by $.50-per-hour workers, former Scientologists familiar with the Scientology CNN allege. A Daily Mail report states that rumors that Tom Cruise was leaving the controversial church are utterly false.
Tom Cruise will allegedly play a significant role in the Scientology news network created under the Scientology Media Productions umbrella.
The Scientology Hollywood studio will allegedly create “propaganda” films as part of their ongoing membership recruiting efforts. If the claims by former church members are accurate, Tom Cruise may be using the same studio to film some of his upcoming movies. The state-of-the art facility reportedly rivals the space used by Paramount studios.
Scientology bosses may even use the new studios to attract budding Hollywood actresses to audition to be Tom’s new girlfriend.
The first photos of the Church of Scientology studio were reportedly revealed to the public for the first time on the Daily Mail website. The workers tasked with completing the Hollywood studio allegedly include Sea Org recruits. Former church members said the Sea Org recruits could be easily identified in the images because of their blue uniforms.
The Scientology news network studio is believed to be just a few months from completion. Scientology media projects were reportedly created inside the main church headquarters in Hemet, a desert town about 60 miles outside of Los Angeles. The Scientology Media Productions center will be just 12 miles from Tom Cruise’s West Hollywood mansion. The film studio is reportedly larger than both Paramount and Universal studios.
Sinar Parman, a former assistant to Church of Scientology leader David Miscavige, said, “CNN covers anything and everything, it’s their version of CNN, but who wants to watch that stuff?”
The Scientology Facebook page boasts images of the various studios, newsrooms, and suites inside the new complex.
An excerpt from the Church of Scientology website details the complex.
“The global media center that will revolutionize the Church’s communications footprint throughout the print, broadcast, and internet media worlds as a state-of-the-art hub helping beam Scientology’s message all over the globe. The world population of 7 billion is growing by more than 250,000 daily. With 3,000 opportunities to reach each person on any given day, the technological power to reach out exists at unprecedented orders of magnitude. Scientology Media Productions is the emphatic answer to that most vital question of how we will in fact catapult into the next dimension. When this new property opens, we will be capable of reaching virtually every person on Earth.”
Over the course of the past several years, several women have come forward and claimed that they made “girlfriend audition” films for viewing by Tom Cruise and his Scientology advisers.
