New York Times
Over the last several months, The St. Petersburg Times published a series of scathing articles on the Church of Scientology under the rubric “The Truth Rundown.” In 1980, the newspaper won a Pulitzer Prize for an investigation of the church’s inner workings.

Aug 14, 1950 The Dianetics craze — The New Republic More: link
The New Republic
It is not so much the content of this book which deserves analysis as its effect on the average reader's mind.
