CNN’s Sister Network Asks Psychic To Explain What Happened To Missing Malaysia Jet

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.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
