Uri getting Treatment

Unlike Andrew, who thinks that this is painful to watch, I think this is the proper way to treat Uri Geller. This should have been done in the 70s. The only problem then, the people who would have called him out on his "bullshitery" were not in charge of the television program back then. Today is different. We understood that deconstructing people is also entertainment. Not good entertainment, but entertainment nevertheless.

And Uri Geller needs that. Badly.

It's a general thing for me that charlatanry needs not only to be overexposed, but also the charlatans themselves need the worst kind of punishment: Public ridicule! Don't be angry with them!... Call them out by yelling: "Do another trick Magic Boy!"

Reminds me of this:
