Earthquake-predicting failure and serial pseudoscientist Croft gets more attention

In another update to our article about Serial pseudoscientist predicts huge earthquake event for March 22 (Update: FAIL) at least one independent “reporter” has failed to do basic fact checking and is inadvertently helping Terral Croft turn his failed prediction into a win in the minds of his readership. This reporter bills himself as a Foreign Affairs Examiner and in his interview with Croft they connect government mind control of private astronomers, Chemtrails, HAARP, nanotechnology, and Morgellons syndrome! I guess his personal definition of “Foreign” means really, really far out there.

Croft predicted an earthquake for March 20th and sent out a press release to that effect. The 20th is the date that the Oaxaca Mexico was hit by a 7.6 magnitude quake; but the intensity fell far short of Croft’s prediction of a magnitude 9 monster that would shift the Earth’s axis by 5 inches.

    I hate the Examiner. Citizen journalism at its worst. (With a few RARE exceptions). But anyone who can write decently doesn’t get hits for sensationalism and goes to write somewhere else.

    I wonder what it has in common with the old tabloid National Examiner? If anything.
