Is John Edward a fake?
image It seems like whenever I turn on the SciFi channel, there's John Edward talking to the dead. I don't really care if he actually can talk to the dead or not (I assume he can't). I'm more concerned by the fact that his show is boring. But on the start of his Australian tour, a man has sued him, claiming that Edward's show violates the Trade Practices Act which stipulates that suppliers of goods can't make claims that they can't substantiate. In this case, Edward claims he can talk to the dead, but the guy suing him is pretty sure he can't. It'll be interesting to see how the case is resolved.

I work at a theatre where he has preformed before. He buys 20 random seats throughout the audience and has his actors stationed in them. He does very basic readings and its often the audience preceiving everything. They want it to be real to they believe that much more. And just in case john's reading is completely wrong about why he is "seeing" the actor is always near by to save his butt.
