    In a battle between charlatans and the Daily Mail, I’m with the side that aren’t charlatans

    Whereas someone makign money from bereaved relatives by claiming that not only does she speak to the dead but that they answer her is worthy of our sympathy?

    I’m with the DM on this one.

    I’m with the DM on this one.

    Hence the 5 basket rating.

    So, as I understand it, they have ruled in her favour as she wasn’t ‘mic’d up’, therefore not decieving the audience?

    If I were the DM, I’d be desperately searching for a way of counter suing on the basis that she just made it all up as she went along (imo)….

    but I’m not, nor do I have any evidence to support that she did.

    sorry but the DM admitted to printing a story which was completely untrue. Regardless of whatever opinion people have about psychic, this is surely the right outcome.

    Can’t the DM denounce her for witchcraft and have her burned?

    I read it as a technical argument, the DM arugued she used an earpeice to perpetrate a scam, she argues she is a very good cold reader and is perfectly capable of scamming the vulnerable using just her wits.

    Lose-lose situation as far as I see it. For once the Daily Mail reports something worthy (scammers exploiting mourners) but in doing so ends up paying out a fortune to said scammer and reinforcing their reputation. Hopefully this will spur on the mail to out her properly instead of just sticking to easy targets like immigrants.

    So she’s using cold reading rather than hot reading. That’s okay then. 😆 Pretty silly of the DM to make a concrete statement like that with no evidence though.

    Does this mean she’s a .. like a.. REAL psychic then?

    The Daily Mail need to get tips from her on how to make stuff up.

    DM pays out ’cause it “exposed” someone who was/wasn’t telling the truth and taking advantage of Simple Minds..oh the ironing, at least 5 baskets worth. 😀

    If only she’d been of Romany/eastern european extraction and claiming benefit…
