If true, hilarious. Annoys me somewhat that some people make money from others' desperation and sadness.

Cold reading depends on one charlatan  and one idiot. The problem is that the charlatan underestimated the stupidity of their mark.

Of course if the lady dies in a freak revolving-door accident in the next couple of days the whole story changes.

Are you implying that TF is full of people desperate and sad?

You hurt my feelings. I ... just want to feel part of something, IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?!

Didn't somebody do something similar to that Jonathan Edwards guy, and now we don't see him on TV anymore?

Generally I dont feel all that sorry for people foolish enough to piss away their money on crap like this, but the ones who pretend to talk to dead family members make my blood boil. My mother was killed in a car accident when I was 17 and I know how vulnerable denial, despair, and grief can make an otherwise rational person. Anyone who exploits that vulnerability to make a few dollars is the worst sort of scum.

I went to see a psychic show with this woman through work (that's my story and I'm sticking to it). After a preamble she started "picking up messages from the spirits" and began calling out names... "Peggy. Is there a Peggy in the room? Peggy? ...ok, Sue..." Oh, how I laughed. Not a flicker from her though.

At the interval they played a success reel proving that all the misses she'd had that evening were basically the fault of the audience. In one disturbing clip she apparently correctly identified that the woman she was talking to had been gang raped, and began describing the scene of the rape. I had to wonder who exactly was relaying this information from the spirit world. Was she in communication with one of the rapists? A dead grandparent who couldn't find anything else interesting to say about their grandchild?

Laughed?!  You don't know what you're talking about.  If you knew Peggy Sue, then you'd know why I feel blue.  It's not something to laugh at.

My first thought was, "There is no way that anyone who willingly attends a psychic reading would be smart enough to pull off such a troll." Then I RTFA, and whattya know, the person only did it because they are even dumber than the average psychic reading attendee.

God damn, people are farking dumb. The fact that 'celebrity psychic' is even a thing is proof enough that nobody deserves any empathy.

She's still alive, I met her in 2007 while playing with Sonny West ("Rave On" & "Oh Boy") at the Clovis (NM) Music Festival. Really sweet old lady.

I don't buy long island psychic for a second, but it is brilliantly edited. All I can say when my wife watches it is "That's unbelievable that she would say that". I have no idea how you would keep a scam like that alive this day and age. None of the unedited tapes get leaked, let alone her slipping and going out of character?

There was a particularly gruesome bit in which Sally Morgan (the psychic in question) got a "hit" on someone's relative dying in the far East - I think I recall it was someone who died during the Second World War. Sally Morgan kept going on about his knees being smashed in. The family in the room responded that they didn't know much about how he died, but she kept insisting that she was hearing screaming and wailing about his knees. I don't think she was aiming for comfort on this occasion.

I believe he lost his audience when he brought back a sinner who at that moment was literally in the hands of an angry God.

They are indeed scum, but not the worst. IMO, the absolute bottom of the barrel scum, the absolute waste of organic matter, are those who take advantage of the terminally ill.

"I know the oncologist told you that you have generalized cancer, but I can save your life with hot baths, organic blueberries, and my strong personal energy field, and it will only cost you most of your life savings"  These are the worst of the worst. .

  CSB time:

I remember riding in my car listening to a local radio show, some time in the late 80s, early 90s, in the Harrisburg area.  They had a psychic on who was giving people advice about their love lives.   One male caller was talking about being lonely, and asked the psychic if he would meet somebody soon.  The psychic began a long spiel about how he would soon meet a beautiful woman, and how they would soon become romantically involved, and how she would be the love of his life.   The caller paused a moment, and then said "I hope someone is recording this, because I'm gay".      The psychic, stammered a bit, and began backpedaling furiously, trying to salvage the situation, but I laughed so hard I almost lost control of the car.

I don't remember what the show was called, something like "American Psychics", and one guy on it straight up admitted to not being a psychic, just really good at reading people. He was more "psychic" than many of the people that claimed to be actual psychics. It was hilarious.
