NEW YORK – Bart Simpson is known for prank calls, but Nancy Cartwright, who provides Bart’s voice on the U.S. version of “The Simpsons,” has been heard this week in a phone message using the voice of the cartoon boy to promote Scientology.


Cartwright, long a member of the church, recorded her 60-second robocall to boost attendance at a Scientology event scheduled for Saturday.


Although she identifies herself, much of the spiel is delivered in Bart’s voice, wrapping up with, “See you there, man!”


The Fox network would not comment, but “Simpsons” executive producer Al Jean said the message wasn’t authorized by the show, which has never “endorsed any religion, philosophy or system of beliefs any more profound than Butterfinger bars” candy.

NBC4 News Van “Smash n Grab” Caught on Tape



Jan 30, 2009


Dude, they got our Dell.


A Dell laptop was stolen Thursday in broad daylight from a television news live van, and yes, we want it back.


A man is caught on camera stealing a laptop from a television news vehicle.


The NBC4 vehicle was parked outside a Scientology center in Hollywood near Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. Unfortunately for the thief, the incident was caught on the center’s surveillance cameras.


The video shows a white man riding up on a bicycle and stopping near the car at 8:49 a.m. After moseying around for a bit, he approaches the vehicle, breaks the window and grabs a laptop and bag. He then flees on his bike.


“I heard the laptop was with the company for years and just one day away from retirement,” said an NBC4 employee who wished to remain anonymous.
