Scientology's Angry Letter To Vanity Fair Claims Bigotry, Ignorance And Threatens Legal Action!

We've all read or heard about Vanity Fair's dirty dish on Tom Cruise's relationship with Scientology and how it has affected his love life, but now we're hearing the Church's side of the story.

In an eight-page letter to Graydon Carter, the magazine's editor, the controversial religion's legal rep accuses Maureen Orth's piece of being "shoddy journalism, religious bigotry and potential legal liability."

Mike Wallace passes away

Aw. This is sad, but nobody can say this guy didn't live a good life!

60 Minutes correspondent Mike Wallace passed away on Saturday night at 93-years-old. The newsman was the first staff member on the CBS show when it began in 1968 and earned 21 Emmy awards before retiring in 2006.

His merciless reporting became part of major Hollywood productions like The Insider, in which Russell Crowe played tobacco industry whistle-blower Jeffrey Wigandwhere, who was interviewed by Wallace on 60 Minutes in 1995. The reporter was also a character in the stage production of Frost/Nixon.

He is survived by an outstanding legacy in journalism — including five Peabody awards — as well as a wife, a son, and two stepchildren.

Rest in peace, Mike!
