    My thoughts exactly. :thumbsup:

    And as you said: "He now has a bigger, better gun to shoot with." :)

    Not only does reach more people directly through it's website but there's also a greater chance that Tony O's stories will now be picked up by other media outlets as well.

    From the CoS point of view Tony now became even more dangerous as he's able to reach even more people with the truth.

    I guarentee that OSA is NOT celebrating this move. :no:

    Can't wait for the book. Book plus new position at Raw is going to make
    Ortega more dangerous than Xenu.

    I don't know. :unsure:

    But Tony did post THIS earlier this morning:

    There's a community that's developed over at the Bunker which has dramatically expanded just over the past month.

    I don't think that Tony would want to just pull the plug on it and dissolve it. :unsure:

    Plus he's got an amazing archive of blog posts over there as well I'm sure he would want to keep online.

    it is a great place,but as someone mentioned before....there is a lots of people over there,who just enjoy mocking $cientology without any experience,they just like a Disq and can talk/write what ewer they want,they just talk about stupid things....irrelevant things,lots of old members are asking him to make a separate "chat room",like is hard over there to follow all posts.
    it is not a same blog as it was a year or better 2 years ago...
    but Iam glad that he has so much posters/hints per day.:thumbsup:
    I like Tony,and me thinks he did find a best solution.

    I do continue to feel ambivalence about Tony's move and the possibility of the Bunker being closed ESPECIALLY after the interview with the author of OT VIII is Great.. every day Tony moves the old rugger ball a bit forward down the field. One of the greats in the movement to SSFW (stop scientology from working!)

    I too prefer to read Tony's new stories in the bunker and keep my natter on ESMB!

    Agreed! I am excited for Tony. His integrity and ability as a reporter does not make him a sell-out by taking the gig at Raw Story, but instead will bring stories about Scientology, and other “alternative” news to a bigger audience.

    All the work he has done at the Underground Bunker will not go to waste. It has educated people about the crimes of the Co$, helped people on fence leave once and for all, and enable people to speak out about their own stories. IMHO - it will continue to do all this.

    Tony has already left a BIG BIG legacy. I’m excited to see what he does next!
  12. How is he going to have any time left for Scientology now that he's covering the teabagger cult at The Raw Story?

    That site is overflowing with batshit crazy.

    Relatively speaking the tea bagger cult make scientology look rational.

    It's gonna be hard to go back to something as boring as Scientology when your day job is covering this freakshow

    that's why i joke that the entire country is using the "tek"
    i also think breitbart and hastings were murdered.
    i hope tony throws us a bone every now and then, his is the first page i go to everyday.
    he says for now the bunker will stay around.
    i wish he had someone good enough to share his responsibilities with.

    and i often hear the raw story quoted from both sides of the fence, so it must be good.

    Not sure how accurate this description is from wiki but does not sound all like it's a "teabagger cult"

    No you misunderstood Chuck. He meant that RawStory extensively covers the "teabagger cult". It is clearly a progressive or liberal news site.

    another one of those words.
    i ain't fer or agin the tea party.
    i haven't read through thier policies and goals, so i am not qualified to make a judgement
    but you do realise that tea bagging is slang for something, something, testicals in someones mouth, etc.?

    Yes, I know that meaning :whistling: ( learned it while supervising my kids on video games :omg:) but I thought his comment was about their reporting on the Tea Party as if they slanted thir emphasis towards supporting the Tea Party..... my misunderstanding.. I didn't read anything at the site but the article on Tony coming aboard.

    But if it's a liberal slant, I don't see where the issue is about the "Teabagger cult" in the above comment.

    I'm guessing J. Swift will be the new De facto senior editor of/at/in the Bunker. Which would be an excellent choice.
