Breaking News: Psychic is a fake!

January 5th, 2006

We all know that it just takes one wrong prophecy to prove a false prophet. You’ll be glad to know that TV psychic Silvia Browne is now disqualified. She just happened to be on George Noory’s live radio show when the West Virginia mine tragedy was unfolding (actually it was the tragedy after the tragedy). Here’s some excerpts:

Noory: “Had you been on the program today, would [you] have felt if — because they heard no sound — that this was a very gloomy moment — and that they might have all died?”

Browne: “No. I knew they were going to be found. I hate people that say something after the fact. It’s just like I knew when the pope was dead. Thank God I was on Montel’s show. I said, according to the time, it was 9-something and whatever Rome time was. And I said he was gone, and he was.”

Of course the events were unfolding. In just a matter of minutes, the entire situation changed. Here’s Browne’s thoughts now:

Browne — who was still in the studio taking questions from listeners — had to say something. Now she was just riffing: “I don’t think there’s anybody alive, maybe one. How crazy for them to report that they were alive when they weren’t!” Then she added: “I just don’t think they are alive.” She cleared her throat, and there was a deafening pause.

Minutes later…

She blurted: “I didn’t believe that they were alive.”

Noory: “What’s that, the miners?”

Browne: “Yeah, I didn’t think — and see, I’ve been on the show with you, but I don’t think there’s any that are going to make it.”

Noory: “They say there are 12 gone. I think we threw you a curveball, we were telling you after the fact.”

Browne: “Yeah, no, I did believe that they were gone.”

OK…just a little fun for you on this slow Thursday.
