Something Can Be Done About It
Entertainment weekly writer Mark Harris certainly got it right this time, on this article I found on CNN.
The recently-release Tom Cruise “bio” by Andrew Morton is an unqualified disaster, actually worse — an unqualified piece of nothingness.
I guess that’s what you get when you’re doing an “unauthorized biography” — tons of meaningless trivia and false information, because the author himself couldn’t verify his facts with the person he’s doing a bio on.
Honestly, it’s the same as any other attempt to generate “controversy” when speaking of a genuinely, honest-to-god, good person. It’s the history of L. Ron Hubbard, who has had just about every vested-interest, hatchet-job writer from the last 50 years attempt to sully his reputation, utterly failing each time because the hatchet jobs are based on lies. It’s the same with Mr. David Miscavige, or Tom Cruise.
I was blogging the same thing a few months ago when another “viral” round of hatchet-job posts were going around concerning the school in Oregon that Tom Cruise send his kids to. It’s trying to make a story out of nothing, so as to either (a) make a lame attempt at a swipe at Scientology, or (b) just gain a few more hits to spike your AdSense revenue.
Pretty lame in my book, which is the slot this bio falls into as well.
