What's scary is that they would have regarded this interview as a *success*. Scientology PR operates a concept known as "PRO Area Control", or PROAC (yes, unfortunate acronym I know - no wonder they got so pissed at Eli Lilly!). The PRO (Public Relations Officer) is required to "control" the area around him to create a positive image for Scientology and a negative image for its enemies. When applied to a media interview, this means "impinging" on an interviewer (hence the shouting) and "outsourcing theta" (hence the rant about psychiatry, which enabled Jentzsch to divert the conversation away from the interviewer's "entheta" about Lisa McPherson's death).

In this context, it's worth quoting excerpts from Heber Jentzsch's "Full Hat Checksheet" - his training plan, issued by OSA Int on 28 January 1988 and leaked (whoops) some time later. Here are some quotes showing the nature of Jentzsch's PR duties:

 184. DRILL: MOCK UP A CAMPAIGN THAT COULD BE RUN REGARDING    
             AN EXPOSE OF THE PSYCHIATRIC DRUGGING OF
             CHILDREN                                          [HJ] __ 

188. ESSAY: WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU USE LIES IN PR [HJ] __

192. ESSAY: HOW THE THREE KEY PARTS OF THE PR PERSONALITY PERTAIN TO CCHR ACTIVITIES [HJ] __

199. ESSAY: WHAT IS PROTEST PR AND WHEN WOULD IT BE OKAY TO USE IT [HJ] __

["Protest PR" is basically public demonstrations - from small groups of Scientologists outside critics' houses to thousands baying for the blood of Clearwater's police chief.]

205. DEMO: HOW THE PRIMARY BARRIER TO PRODUCTION IS HUMAN EMOTION & REACTION. [HJ] __

207. DEMO: HOW A PR CAMPAIGN ON EXPOSING THE PSYCHIATRIC DRUGGING OF SCHOOL CHILDREN IN A COMMUNITY OR COUNTRY WOULD BUILD PRO AREA CONTROL FOR THE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY [HJ] __

[Check out Joe Cisar's post yesterday of reports about a CCHR campaign "exposing" the psychiatric drugging of school children in Vienna.]

210. * HCO PL 5 OCTOBER 71 PR SERIES 12 PROPAGANDA BY REDEFINITION OF WORDS [HJ] __

211. ESSAY: HOW WORDS HAVE BEEN REDEFINED TO CHANGE PEOPLE'S OPINIONS ABOUT CERTAIN SUBJECTS. [HJ] __

212. DRILL: READ THE PSYCHIATIC DIAGNOSTIC CRITERIA FOR THE SO-CALLED "MENTAL ILLNESS" KNOWN AS "ATTENTION DEFICIT DISORDER" IN DSM-II-R AND WRITE A PRESS RELEASE ON HOW PSYCHIATRY HAS RE-DEFINED NORMAL CHILDHOOD BEHAVIOR AS "MENTAL ILLNESS." [HJ] __

213. ESSAY: "A TRUTHFUL DEFINITION OF PSYCHIATRY" USING PR SERIES 12 REDEFINE PSYCHIATRY [HJ] __

216. DRILL: WRITE AN ESSAY WHICH DEGRADES PSYCHIATRY [HJ] __

[This is what Jentzsch would have drawn upon in his interview.]

218. DEMO: THE 7 RULES FOR HANDLING BLACK PROPAGANDA [HJ] __

221. ESSAY: HOW ONE SAFE POINT AN AERA FOR SCN BEFORE LAUNCHING INTO A CAMPAIGN FOR SCIENTOLOGY [HJ] __

231. DEMO: HOW TO AVOID PUSHING THE ENEMY LINES WHEN EXPOSING PSYCHIATRIC DRUGGING OF SCHOOL CHILDREN, OR THE ELECTRIC SHOCKING OF THE ELDERLY BY PSYCHIATRISTS. [HJ] __

237. DRILL: DO A DRILL IN WHICH YOU DEMONSTRATE COME-ON DISSEMINATION IT IS TO BE AS YOU WOULD DO IT IF ON TV OR ON A RADIO SHOW (ON PURIF) [HJ] __

242. DRILL: SELECT FIFTY PURIF SUCCESS STORIES AND READ THROUGH THEM AND FIND THE BUTTON THAT IS CONTAINED IN THESE SUCCESS STORIES. WRITE THIS UP IN COPY USING THE BUTTON FOUND TO COMMUNICATE THE VALUE OF PURIF. WRITE IT FOR A TARGET AUDIENCE OF NEW PEOPLE IN. TURN IN TO SUPERVISOR. [HJ] __

[The following relates directly to the interview Jentzsch did with Koppel.]

263. VIDEO INTRODUCTION TO SCIENTOLOGY LRH/TONY HITCHMAN [HJ] __

264. DRILL While watching the above video note the following:

a) How does LRH position psychiatry and psychology in relation to Scientology [HJ] __

b) How LRH applies key PR Series data to handle interviews with media. [HJ] __

265. PRACTICAL: Do a mock interview as a CHURCH spokesman with a moderately hostile TV Talk Show host. [HJ] __
