While it is wonderful that Sylvia Browne is finally being exposed in the media as a charlatan and a fraud, it is important to remember that she is only one in a long line of predatory fakers who have fed on the ignorance and gullibility of an emotionally fragile audience for years now. Psychics rely on nebulous claims and visual and verbal cues from their audience which allow them to confuse and capitalize on that confusion. Shame on Sylvia Browne. Shame on her enablers in the media. Shame on her peers in the “industry.” And shame on anyone who ever listens to any of these con men and women again.
