Psychic TV channels fined over Michael Jackson and Milly Dowler claims
Two TV channels have been fined a total of £22,500 after they featured psychics making claims about Michael Jackson and Milly Dowler.
Psychic Today and Big Deal were in breach of broadcasting rules after they showed a psychic telling viewers she had been involved in the police investigation into the death of the murdered schoolgirl, the regulator, Ofcom, said.
Another psychic claimed she accurately predicted that her friend would become close to Jackson, before producing photographs of the pair in private locations including his recording studio.
Ofcom ruled that both instances were in breach of its broadcasting code, which states that services such as astrology, horoscopes and tarot readings should be advertised as for entertainment purposes only.
