Sounds Reasonable

April 7, 2008


It’s not a good sign when the guest has to whip the hosts into shape but that’s what happens when Professor Dave Touretzky appears on this show from Binghamton, New York.  Although the hosts start out dorky, once Dave starts talking the show starts moving.

Dr. Dave Returns to Countdown

July 24, 2007


Okay, whose bright idea was it to keep Dr. Dave out on the street? Did the cameraguy get locked out of the studio? The segment was shot in front of ongoing traffic and it’s mighty distracting…but oh, well. Professor David S. Touretzky once again proves himself capable of handling any interview, no matter what the circumstances.

Keith Olbermann again tackles the controversy surrounding the filming of Tom Cruise’s latest movie in Germany, where he is getting a rather chilly reception. Keith quotes Rev. Gandow’s recent comparison of Cruise to Joseph Goebbels and asks if that’s fair.

Thomas Gandow, 60, the German Protestant Church’s chief spokesman on religious cults described Scientology as a “totalitarian organisation” and said that, because of his position as film star, Cruise had become “The Goebbels of Scientology.”

In his film Valkyrie Tom Cruise, 45, plays Claus von Stauffenberg, a German army officer and aristocrat who tried to assassinate Hitler in 1944 by planting a bomb inside the Nazi leader’s East Prussian headquarters.

However Gandow dismissed the film yesterday as “Propaganda for Scientology”.

He added in a reference to the favorable publicity won by Hitler’s Nazi party during the 1936 Berlin Olympic games: “This film will have the same propaganda advantages for Scientology as the 1936 Olympics had for the Nazis.”

Gandow insisted that Cruise had simply come to Germany to campaign for restrictions on Scientology to be lifted.

For those who are unfamiliar with Rev. Gandow, I’ve met the man several times in Leipzig for the annual Alternative Charlemagne Awards which you can see on XENU TV.

A Classroom Full O’ Crazy

May 24, 2007

ORIGINAL BROADCAST DATE: Wednesday, May 23, 2007

We could start with the bat-shit insane Glenn Beck but at least his producer was smart enough to have Professor David Touretzky on as a guest to speak about the increased use of Hubbard’s Study Tech in public classrooms. Dr. Dave once again proves that there is no one better than he when it comes to clearly laying out the information the public needs to know.

I’m so glad Dave was able to speak about the safepointing of Scientology through front groups such as this. He hit the nail on the head.

It’s yet another terrific appearance from Dr. Dave.
