CBS (60 minutes specifically) did a story on a custody battle several years ago exposing the Watchtower to all its legalese (pardon spelling) and what non JW spouses go against when the family splits. I am looking forward to seeing the Silent Lambs segment!
I remember that. I used to watch 60 Minutes every week. I used to always think that they were very unbiased and they told it like it really was. Until I saw that segment. I think it was the lady reporter(can't remember her name) that led the story. She interviewed a husband who couldn't get visitation rights and he went on about how the WTS lawyers represented his wife and he could never win because he couldn't afford high priced lawyers. They showed survelliance camera work of the mother taking the kids out in service. There was more but I can't remember all the details. My reaction to that episode? Well, I claimed that this reporter had something against the witnesses and was trying to make up stuff on them. I refused to believe the non-witness side. It was all lies or misrepresentations. I stopped watching 60 minutes after that. I assumed since they lied about that story, they must be lying about others, therefore I couldn't trust them to telling the truth anymore. And that is what is going to happen when this new story on CBS airs. The average dub will refuse to accept any of it as truth. They will claim it to be lies or misrepresentations. The WTS is already printing WTs on not beleiving the media. So don't expect a great storm of protest from within the ranks to rise from this. It will be regarded as just another attack by Satan on Jehovah's true servants and most dubs will fall for it.
