Ghost Whisperer is a fairly doofy drama about a gal who can see ghosts, and helps them take care of their business on earth so that they can head off into the light. It’s a reverse Saved by an Angel, with the human there to serve the needs of the supernatural. “But at least,” I was telling myself, “it’s not Medium. At least they’re treating it as a work of fiction rather than passing it off as real like that series, which serves to encourage the delusional to waste valuable police time and gives additional resource to scamsters who are exploiting people already in dire circumstance.
Then I stopped by the CBS webpage for Ghost Whisperer and saw them promoting James van Praagh, a heinous and disgusting fraud who profits from deceiving people into believing he talks to the great beyond. These sort of people are damaging conmen, preying on the weak.
Shame on CBS.
