Be Scofield’s independent reporting has received over 800,000 views in 2018 alone and stories have been written based on her work in front page articles on The Guardian, CNN, Daily Mail, CBC, New Zealand Herald, Die Zeit and more. Coverage of her work has garnered millions of views worldwide and has led to the shutting down of large cults and exposing widespread sexual abuse within the tantra scene. Barcroft produced a 15-minute documentary on Bentinho Massaro after her story went viral. Two other short documentaries are in the works because of her stories–one by Jezebel about Agama yoga and another one on Bentinho Massaro by VICE. In total there are over 70 stories written in 35 countries about Be’s work.
