WGNO, the local ABC affiliate in New Orleans, apparently doesn’t even try to uphold the appearance of doing actual journalism. The station, whose motto is “God bless Louisian,” has an “article” — infomercial, really — about a local “psychic” named Cari Roy without even a hint of skepticism or actual reporting.
“I have the sixth sense, ESP, extra-sensory perception. Often people come to me as a medium because they’d like to connect in-depth with loved ones who’ve passed on,” says Roy.
There’s no better time to play host to a spirit party than now. First things first, you’ll need the right table.
“We had séances, my mother was a medium and so I grew up setting tables for the spirits.”…“When it’s for living people you open the door and let them in, when it’s for spirits you sit down, you make a lovely space, you get in a nice meditative state and you welcome them that way.”
Roy says spirits communicate through senses like smell, taste or touch and that everyone can develop a relationship with their deceased loved ones.
And then there’s a link to the “psychic’s” website. That’s it. That’s nearly the entire article. Their idea of “news” is pushing frauds on their viewers.
