Tom Cruise criticized NBC ''Today'' show host Matt Lauer on Friday when Lauer mentioned Cruise's earlier criticism of Brooke Shields for taking anti-depressants. Cruise told Lauer he didn't know what he was talking about. ''You don't know the history of psychiatry. I do,'' Cruise said.

I wasn't going to post on him, but after I read this interview that DC Media Girl has where he says:

Cruise: I’m a helper. For instance, I myself have helped hundreds of people get off drugs. In Scientology, we have the only successful drug rehabilitation program in the world. It’s called Narconon.

Cruise: You don’t understand what I am saying. It’s a statistically proven fact that there is only one successful drug rehabilitation program in the world. Period."

Then watching him with Lauer I couldn't help myself. (memo to publicist/sister: keep him away) I'm sure Tom's been studing with Bill Frist because hey...if Frist can use a video tape to make a diagnosis, I guess Tom can treat cancer with Flintstone chewables. Maybe Tom Delay can be helped by Cruise on that other problem. ( see video below )
