Stop Sylvia Browne
Sylvia Browne. It’s a name which causes strong reactions in a lot of people. To her fans, who believe that she is a “true psychic medium,” she is a down-to-earth, spiritually deep woman who, with the help of her “spirit guide” Francine, can see the future, diagnose illnesses, find lost children, and communicate with the dead. To skeptics, who believe that she has not proven any of her purported abilities, she is almost certainly a fraud, using stage tricks such as “cold reading” to simulate psychic abilities, preying on the grieving, the ill, and the spiritually needy.
