John Edward Protest Canceled

Skeptics from the Southeastern Wisconsin area will stand outside in protest of John Edwards’ Milwaukee, WI.

Edward is one of the country’s most successful psychics headlining two different shows based on his work.

At $150 a ticket, hundreds of residents want to get answers to some of life’s questions.

It’s all hogwash.

We skeptics think there is a lot of trickery is involved.

Advice for the demonstration:

While it’s admirable that skeptics have taken a stand at such events, I found a few things other groups might keep in mind as Edward or some other psychic comes to give a show in your town.

First, don’t accuse them of trickery. They have methods that appears to be psychically derived but, to be fair, perhaps even the psychic performer may believe they have genuine powers. If you do not have evidence that microphones or audience plants are involved, you should not suggest on camera that this is the case. Second, have a set message to deliver. Have a professional demeanor, including well-done signs and information to distribute to people.

I and many other critical thinkers agree John Edward is not authentic and capitalizes off of people’s grief and concern. He makes a very handsome living off his work and he has never been willing to have his so called “power” tested. What a coward.
