Is the Long Island Medium SCRIPTED? Caution! What You Must Know About Psychics on TV

April 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 594

How accurate are the readings on the Long Island Medium? Do they truly reflect the reality of the readings done, or are they edited to look or appear better than they really are? And are ANY of the TV programs that feature live mediums a good way of gauging how accurate they truly are....or do you need to go and see the psychic in person to know for sure? In this article we take a closer look at both the Long Island Medium TV show, and the truth about how many psychic TV programs (and other reality shows) are produced for the masses. Curious to know more? Continue reading as we take a closer look below!

But first... understand this to be true, because it is:

The psychic featured on the show, Theresa Caputo, has had a long history of offering some amazing readings in some pretty public places, WELL before she became well known, famous and a household name based on the TV show. As a matter of fact, as someone who publishes lots of information in the psychic "space", I heard her on the radio many times when she was a relative unknown Long Island psychic medium, and her live appearances on the "Forever Family Foundations" website (a non profit organization that offers help to grieving families who have lost a loved one) always intrigued me as as result of her accuracy.

So she had already demonstrated a level of psychic ability beyond the average, even for professional mediums, and this certainly contributed to her appeal and rapid growth in psychic stature and popularity.

Next, understand THIS to be true as well... because it is!

TV is a very difficult medium (no pun intended!) to judge when it comes to "reality" of any kind. You have to remember that the people who push and publish these programs are about the 3 critical bottom line metrics for successful television - viewers, advertisers and dollars. They aren't interested in how accurate (or honest) the readings are, nor are they concerned if editing the readings Ms. Caputo offers are done in a way that satisfies psychic believers OR skeptics.

They want viewers, plain and simple. And it's NO secret that the more "unbelievably impressive" the readings are, the more viewers will tune in. So my feeling is always to watch these sorts of shows with a little bit of a skeptical eye, simply because unless you see an entire reading in an unedited fashion, it's difficult to really judge how accurate it really was.

(I certainly don't believe anyone "cheats" in any deliberate way, but to omit "misses" and only include the "hits" would certainly be something I'd expect, just because it makes for better TV)

Speaking with John Edward a while back in a small group setting...

He said the real reason he wouldn't go back on TV when asked, was that he did NOT want to do a "reality based" show on his life, and simply wanted to give readings for an audience in front of a crowd or small group. According to his remarks, the TV executives didn't think that made for the type of TV most people want to see these days, and are equally as interested in the back story, as they are in the actual psychic readings. (which seems to be the case with most reality TV programming these days... at least the popular shows we all know)

So what does that mean overall?

I say, keep an open mind, but always know that what you are watching is edited. Not necessarily in a bad way.....but any sort of editing, if you are a psychic "snob" like me, changes something about how seriously I can take the information that comes through. But for entertainment purposes...the Long Island Medium is A LOT of fun, and having seen Theresa Caputo do all sorts of other interviews as well, I think she deserves the success, too!
