If you thought CNN’s conspiracy theories about the missing Malaysia Airlines jet were bunk, you’ll be blown away by its sister network HLN.
Mediaite caught a segment that truly one-upped even CNN’s Don Lemon: HLN hosts Lynn Berry and Jenny Hutt on Thursday night invited a psychic to talk about what she thinks happened to the missing jetliner.
“Naturally, I don’t have hard, concrete evidence,” psychic Lisa Williams told them. “I think any psychic who has hard, concrete evidence can’t do their job correctly, because they get misinformed.”
“I tend to work off what I don’t know,” she added.
Berry then asked airline pilot Les Abend to react. He classily qualified that he wasn’t “disparaging Lisa’s profession” before saying he found it difficult “to think that a psychic could solve a problem that people all over the world are not able to solve at this point.”
Williams then revealed she was in the process of doing a psychic “reading” for some friends of the victims’ families. She said she saw the plane crash somewhere with “a lot of trees” and believes some victims are still alive.
“I also believe there was a hijacking and I think there is also a larger organization behind all of this that is leading us off track,” she said. “With this debris, I think they’re leading us off track. It’s all kept hush-hush.”
The seer says a resolution is in sight, though: sources in “witchy woo land” told Williams that all the conspiracy theories about the plane’s disappearance will be put to bed when the truth comes out within the next three weeks.
Mediaite has video of the whole exchange.
