On June 16, 1998, the television news program Dateline NBC aired a segment on FACTNet director Bob Mintonand on the harassment he has endured since voicing opposition to Scientology.
The show was excellent, and Dateline was brave to air it. Here are some comments FACTNet received:
"Just wanted to let you know that I thought the Bob Mintonstory was fantastic.What a courageous man."
"Bob Mintonhas saved lives and saved families."
"I thought it was an excellent program and I sent NBC's Dateline an email praising them for carrying the story and giving so much attention to it."
FACTNet has received overwhelming positive response to the program, including over 30,000 hits to the web page when it aired. We set up a special section of the web page with information on it at minton_dateline.html.
