Glad they got called on it... these guys should be exposed.

These fellas generally just "cherry pick" the information they need, and show it on the TV. You then hear how they were right for certain parts of the prediction. However, how many more dubious bits of information did they get wrong? These are the parts not usually shown on the TV. Well, it doesn't make for good viewing if the psychic appears to be guessing or only a bit bit right.

So due to careful editing, and certain strategic omissions. The psychics look like they were right all along, as opposed to just "cold reading" and guess work.

It's so sad to see them take advantage of people. Especially when it comes to bereavement, where people are at there most vulnerable...

People often say "well what harm do they do?"

Well, I believe that death is part of living, and the grieving process should be left to nature too. Keeping people clinging on to that type of hope is just not fair and stops them from moving on.

If they need help they should talk to family and friends or maybe a see a trained professional - not some cold reader who takes money. That just my opinion.
