Erin Moriarty 48 Hours
She has also been narrating recent episodes of 48 Hours Mystery.
Her lack of skepticism and “complete journalistic fail” over her segment on CBS’s Sunday Morning in March 2018 was brought about by Neurologist Steven Novella and paranormal investigator Joe Nickell writing in separate Skeptical Inquirer articles . Her segment showed clips of spoon-bender Uri Geller from the 1980’s performing “‘psychic’ parlor tricks” but instead of explaining to her audience that Geller had been debunked many times she instead said he was “‘unreliable'”, no mention of the work of James Randi.
Novella claimed that Moriarty was most likely just an old-school journalist who thinks of paranormal pieces as ‘”fluff”‘ pieces that don’t require journalistic rigor and that this segment could have run “thirty years ago with no change”. Moriarty in another segment interviewed psychic Angela Dellafiora Ford, who claims that she “psychically tracked down fugitive drug smuggler Charlie Jordan in 1989″. Nickell wrote that Moriarty “simply takes Ford at her word” and “gushes” over her. Nickell states that Ford’s claims are an example of ‘”retrofitting”‘ and incorrect.
