Sputnik News in Sweden reported in late July 2019 that Jehovah’s Witnesses “run a multi-million dollar film industry with the purpose of specifically reaching out to children. This is despite being convicted in a district court for showing films that have not been approved by the Swedish State Media Council.”
For the very first time, Leah Remini and Mike Rinder met with former members of the Jehovah’s Witnesses. In their special 2-hour episode, they invited a panel of contributors to open up and share their personal stories of growing up in the secretive Watchtower organization. The hosts allowed the participants to describe their experiences candidly and without any restrictions.
In a follow-up article that continues his earlier reporting about the recent Jehovah’s Witness sex abuse case heard in Montana, Seaborn Larson of the Missoulian ties up the loose ends and expands upon the longterm effects that the case may have on the Watchtower organization.

Before my transfer from the Engineering Department to the Writing Department in 1989, the architect designing a 30-story staff residence building (that was about to be built near the four Watchtower printery buildings) mentioned to me his need for a professional cost analysis system to be put into place for future building projects. He designed the buildings but the Accounting Department paid the bills.
