Release of Archival Material
days only 3/15/05 - 4/15/05
following material will be offered for thirty days only from the dates
- Dateline video- This is the
currently unreleased version of the Dateline program. When the original
program aired on 5/28/02 material was omitted from the Barbra Anderson
interview. The following Sunday when the program re-aired on MSNBC
the original program had 25 edits to add the Anderson material and
make it fit in the time constraints of the MSNBC program. This new
material puts the entire program together in one seamless commercial
Watchtower PR Video- In February of 2001 the Watchtower PR department
filmed a video in response to local media to try and discount the
child abuse policy allegations. This video includes footage of William
H. Bowen’s father saying his son was not telling the truth. This video
was distributed to television and newspaper reporters in the local
area. This has never been viewed by the public to date.
- Local media- See what actually
aired by a local station when hundreds of witnesses called and demanded
that the WT PR video be shown along with the very first broadcast
of the abuse issue. Also featured is an interview with the family
that was involved in the abuse allegations from Bowen’s congregation.
This material has never been released to date.
- Watchtower letters- Five letters
that show the lies and hypocrisy of the organization in attempting
to cover up the abuse issue to members.
- February, 2002 letter written
to Dateline that stated the reason for not appearing on the program
was so they would not appear adversarial with their brothers and sisters
on the program.
- May, 2002- three letters written
to William H. Bowen, Barbra Anderson, Carl and Barbra Pandelo to disfellowship
them before the program aired.
- May 24, 2002 letter written
to all congregations written four days before Dateline aired in an
attempt to do damage control.
