James Van Praagh
| Putting the psycho in|
|Men who stare at goats|
|By the powers of tinfoil|
A journalist who was present during a show saw van Praagh talk to people during the warm-up, and use that same information later during the show. He still got it so wrong that it was "almost comical", but the televised episode was heavily edited so it looked much "better". Audience members also have to sign a gigantic release form which (among other things) forbids them from talking to the media about what they saw during the show. 
- Miklos Jako made this video to show how wrong Praagh is in a "reading"
- Penn & Teller: Bullshit, episode 1.01, Talking to the dead, starting at about 14:00
