SP Times:"Church of Scientology rolls out new ad campaign in bay area" Church of Scientology rolls out new ad campaign in bay area - St. Petersburg Times "Beginning June 21, the three-part series "The Truth Rundown" featured the stories of four people who once held top positions in the church. They alleged that leader David Miscavige physically attacked members of the church's top leadership and fostered an atmosphere of violence among Scientology's international management. Another story Aug. 2 revealed allegations from other former staffers at the church, which locates its spiritual headquarters in Clearwater. Given the stories the St. Petersburg Times has written recently about the church, why is the organization selling advertising space to them? Paul Tash, editor, chairman and CEO of Times Publishing Co., said the company doesn't take Scientology recruitment advertising. But the current online ad, which speaks more to Scientology's overall image, doesn't meet that definition."
