Yesterday, in introducing Julia Belluz for her expose on Dr. Oz, I mentioned an ABC News show about “John Of God,” which I said aired ten or fifteen years ago. Checking my archives, I discovered it actually aired just under eight years ago, on February 10, 2005. That show’s lack of skepticism about this faith healing charlatan so incensed me that I called James Randi, who had been brought in by ABC to “balance” the nonsense viewers had seen — but they gave Randi so little airtime that it was laughable. So I decided to give Randi some equal time on the public airwaves via my radio show.
