Countdown – Germany Says Nein to Cruise
ORIGINAL BROADCAST DATE – Tuesday June 26, 2007
It’s always nice to come home from work and turn on Countdown with Keith Olbermann. If only all news shows were as good as this and covered the important news of the day, from Bush’s latest blunder to Bill O’Reilly’s latest bluster.
A wonderful added benefit for the SP’s in the audience is that Keith will invariably cover the latest wacky Scientology story in a segment he has come to call “Tom Cruise Scares Me.”
Tonight, Keith looked at the controversy over Germany’s refusal to allow Cruise to film his new Nazi-era movie in government and military buildings. Governments refuse cooperation to filmmakers all the time. Usually it is because they are worried the film will show them in a bad light. This time, they came right out and said they are refusing him permission because Cruise is a Scientologist and they consider the group a cult.
Germany has very strict laws governing paramilitary cults such as Scientology. They were put into effect after WWII so another Nazi-like group could never rise again in their land. They take this seriously and they are not letting Scientology get away with their religious-cloak.
On a happier note, today is the birthday of my sweet Magooski, Tory Christman! Hooray and Huzzah! Let the world celebrate the wonderfulness of this completely enchanting woman we first met as Magoo.
Happy birthday, Tory!!!!!Explore posts in the same categories: Joking and Degrading, TV Broadcasts
