Et tu, Dr. Oz?
Apparently having exhausted living patients to treat and diagnose, “Dr. Oz” turns over a chunk of his syndicated program on March 15 to guest John Edward, the TV psychic who can absolutely tell you that you have a male relative who passed away who might have had a problem in the chest area. Oh, and the name — does it begin with “G,” or maybe a “G” sound?
Here’s the description:
“PSYCHIC MEDIUMS: ARE THEY THE NEW THERAPISTS? FIND OUT IF TALKING TO THE DEAD IS A NEW FORM OF THERAPY”
Today, psychic medium John Edward joins Dr. Oz to discuss how talking to the dead can help with the healing process of losing a loved one. Dr. Katherine Nordal, Executive Director of the American Psychological Association, speaks about the impact of grief on a person’s life and the therapeutic benefits of communicating beyond the grave. Audience member Jamie (Woodbury, NY) shares her experience of talking with her dad since his death. Then, John Edward conducts readings with audience members and reveals his steps to harness your intuitive powers to connect with loved ones on the other side.
Frankly, I had hoped for more from the good doctor. Hell, it isn’t even a sweeps month, dude!
There’s a place for Edward’s shtick on TV. But with all the bad science and superstition already being foisted upon the public’s most gullible members, shouldn’t a show hosted by a medical doctor be a hocus-pocus-free zone?
So much for the yellow-brick road. And pay no attention to that man in front of the curtain. His bedside manner notwithstanding, he’s just another TV sellout.
