Really, what kind of “journalism” is this?

Primetime Live is doing a show on “John of God” – a Brazilian “healer” and “surgeon.” He just did “surgery” and the show doesn’t even spend anytime showing that it was an illusion. When the journalists are willing to be lied to, are eager to simply put out “facts” without any sense of skepticism or journalistic inquiry. ABC’s website for the show is here. It’s rather disturbing that ABC is putting this forth as a news story.

Jim Jones created miracles as well and we all know how that turned out. For another view about psychic surgery, see this.
