WXYZ, an ABC affiliate in the Detroit area, did a story the day after Christmas that was nothing more than an informercial for a couple of con artists presenting themselves as “pet psychics.” The “reporter” who did the story brought her dog in for a reading and this was the result.
7 Action News reporter Tara Edwards and her dog Taz met Lorrie at The Pet Beastro in Madison Heights for a reading.
She also caught up with Psychic Eve who told 7 Action News, dogs communicate telepathically.
“People who have seizures a lot of times have a dog that warns him of seizure that’s coming,” said Psychic Eve. “People have had dogs that have sniffed out cancer. People with heart conditions have dogs.”
Really? You don’t say. People with heart conditions have dogs? Shocking. Just shocking. Next you’ll be telling me that people who play baseball have dogs too.
Taz suffers from epilepsy.
“He wants more attention because he worries that if he’s sick you’re going to think he’s too much work,” said Psychic Eve. “I think it runs through his mind because he can get a little bit obsessive at times.”
Lorrie The Pet Psychic was full of surprises. She predicted Taz would soon get a girlfriend.
“He says there’s enough of me for everybody,” said Lorrie.
“Psychic Eve” even said that Taz likes his hair a bit longer because it makes him feel more “macho” and “desirable.” And all of this was presented without the tiniest hint of skepticism. It’s time for Tara Edwards to turn in her credentials as a “journalist” and for the leadership of WXYZ’s “news” division to hang their heads in shame.
