There's certainly enough material here--from multiple, credible sources. The worst that could happen is the media ignores it, not wanting to get entangled with the former leaders of this travesty. And perhaps the public has grown weary of the titillating (sorry for the use of this word) behavior of cult leaders--and the subject matter is no longer considered interesting enough to draw the sustained attention of readers/viewers. Thank you social media for deadening our senses :)
