    Mike Rinder on Paid Anti‑Scientologists



    Mike Rinder is quite familiar with the modus operandi of professional anti-Scientologists who seek to profit by making up false media stories relying on the same circle of zealots to “corroborate” their bogus claims. In 1998, while serving as a Church spokesman, Rinder explained these tactics to ABC’s 20/20: “They [anti-Scientologists] sat in a room, they figured out what they were going to say, they wrote their bits, they passed them around, they made sure they were consistent. And yes, they were paid for that.” That is Mike Rinder and his cohorts today.
