Re: Tom Cruise in Chicago May5th for Oprah Interview. Whether or not this has been taped, is in the can, or is still in progress... For me and my demographic, the big opportunity in this is that it is an excuse to discuss the subject publicly and with anyone and everyone, without looking like we're forcing an obscure issue. (i.e. "Hey, did you hear Tom Cruise is going back on Oprah... I just saw an interview with one of those Scientology's leaders' nieces on Nightline last week! OMG -- that cult is freaky. I wonder if Tom really knows what's going on behind the scenes, or if Oprah knows. She'd hate to be promoting something that does such awful things to kids. You should check it out. They gave a link to some website. Uh.... exscientologykids I think it was." Oprah is sufficiently followed that her shows, particularly high profile ones, are talked about in coffee houses, at book clubs, and over watercoolers all over the United States. This is your opening to introduce the subject to lots of people, and you will want to go veeerrry easy on the details, but find at least one hook, something to drive someone to look online, and give one really good non-tinfoilhatted reference. For this particular bunch, I HIGHLY SUGGEST EXSCIENTOLOGYKIDS.ORG -- because moms are the core audience.
