Wednesday night’s Primetime Nightline on ABC will focus on “psychic abilities.”
Besides interviewing “psychics” like James Van Praagh, though, ABC producers also spoke with the folks at JREF — James Randi, DJ Grothe, Banachek, and Jamy Ian Swiss. Smart move.
They also taped the “first-ever open Million Dollar Challenge event where hundreds of New York City psychics were invited to take [JREF's] tests.” (And you would think news would’ve broken if anyone won the prize…)
The preview clip is below:
Will it be a complete fluff piece? One commenter at JREF predicts how this will all go down:
… after 59 minutes, here will be the summary: “So are psychic abilities real? The truth is — we just don’t know. Goodnight, everyone.”
I’m thinking that commenter knows the future better than anyone ABC interviewed for their piece… but we’ll see if the producers tell the truth instead of leaving viewers with an ambiguous lie.
Speaking of JREF, there are some great pictures of The Amazing Meeting 9 taken by Ingrid Laas over on their website.
