Suicidal Psychic Sally

We don’t usually post stories from The Sun. You don’t have to click on it. In fact, I advise you don’t. The gist of it is that the coverage of accusations that she was a “fake” made Sally suicidal.

Sally Morgan: Claims I was fake made me want to kill myself | The Sun |Features.

PSYCHIC Sally Morgan has revealed how she was nearly driven to suicide over claims she is a fake.
In her first interview in nearly two years, the TV medium has opened up about the depression that descended on her after she was branded a cheat and a fraud.

Speaking exclusively to The Sun, she told how she refused to get out of bed and contemplated ending her life following damaging false claims that she was using an earpiece during shows so accomplices could prompt her with what to say.

As a result Sally became a victim of internet trolls who posted death threats on her Facebook fan page — and even had to report a stalker to police for abusive phone calls.

But despite her gift, she did not foresee the controversy that would erupt during a reading in Dublin in September 2011.

Other interesting info from this piece:

  • Uri Geller urged her to sue.
  • Her ordeal has made her feel more empathic to her audience.
  • She says it is “effortless” for her to get psychic information. She doesn’t have to ask for it.
  • She reported nasty, violent threats from “skeptics”.
  • She says “Every single night that I step out on stage is a test. Sceptics can come and watch what I do and see for themselves.”

Not quite. She makes a fine living off of this, but won’t take actual tests. That says something. Sorry, but I’m not feeling sympathy here. If you are going to make such a claim as having such a “gift”, then “skeptics” have every right to doubt and say so. It’s YOUR claim, lady, not our job to accept it or prove you wrong. The fact that Sally won the suit says NOTHING about her psychic abilities.

Many of you might find her response… irritating. Don’t take it out on my page. I’ll just delete it. She is litigious.

    I’m afraid I read this in the paper earlier.
    To call it credulous and sycophantic would be an understatement.

    and what about the glass bowl in the foyer for people to put their details and messages in before her show. wasn’t she caught out by someone putting false information on a piece of paper which she then came out with on stage as if it was a message from “the other side”..

    Oh snap!

    Kudos to the reporter that wrote that line.

    Until she agrees to be tested by the numerous groups who have offered, particular kudos to the Merseyside Skeptics, she can’t complain one bit about people doubting her “abilities”. If her “abilities” come easy to her as she claims it would be too simple to prove it in a scientific test.

    As we used to say in the mental health facility I worked at, “No one can make you feel anything. You have to take responsibility for your emotions, and your subsequent behavior.”

    There are only two possible explanations for “psychic” powers – self delusion or deception. In most cases it’s a mix of both. Given that it would be trivially easy for “psychic” Sally to prove her powers in a way which precludes cheating and offers a handsome cash prize, I wonder why she goes off whining to the courts.

    I think skeptics are right to publicly question her authenticity, but personal abuse, stalking, and death threats are not cool.

    The “Personal abuse, stalking and death threats” are entirely anecdotal.

    She’s been offered the chance to prove her powers and, like all the other ‘psychics’, she refused.

    The Daily Mail is one of the most credulous papers on the Planet and shame on them for not contesting this.

    Possibly, it wasn’t contested because too many of their readers believe this horseshit and would have boycotted the paper.
