Not as unbiased as you would think, 15 March 2008
Author: CheshireCatsGrin from 2 hours north of Los Angeles

This episode of the show was very biased. You get an idea by the introduction when Bill Kurtis mentions that Pscyhiatrists are the ones attacking the Church of Scientology, not visa versa.

It went downhill from there. There are brief mentions of the negative press that was unavoidable (Lisa McPherson) but it was sandwiched between happy Scientologists and John Travolta.

I understand that Kurtis had to play nice-nice to get the big interviews, but I don't think it was worth damaging the Investigative Reports brand. I now research any topic that may be controversial if it airs on his A&E series of shows.
