Char Margolis is one of those ditzy book-peddling Newagers who claims to have psychic powers and can see spirits and auras and crap like that. She appeared on WGN, and tried to “read” one of the news hosts. Watch as she pulls the boring John Edward bullshit (“I see an ‘M’ or a ‘J'”…jeebus, do ghosts all wander around in the afterlife wearing monogrammed smoking jackets or something?) and belly-flops ignominiously.
But the title of this post promised amazing powers, you say. I didn’t say whose, and they sure aren’t Char’s. I was really impressed with the news host Larry, though, who demonstrated the amazing powers of skepticism, coming right out and telling Char, “you failed!” I was less impressed with the woman who tried to make excuses for her.
That’s what I’d like to see more of, though: interviewers who can come right out and do a Johnny Carson and call the fakes fakes.
