Superstition and the Press

MacDougall, Curtis D.

 Journalism professor and newspaperman MacDougall reviews three decades of newspaper accounts of claims of supernatural phenomena, among them ESP, spiritualism, poltergeists, ghosts, and psychic healing. He is very critical of the reporters of these stories because they do not question the validity of the claims they report. The main value of this book is that it is a record of journalistic interest in parapsychology, certainly not that it is a record of fact. He believes he has collected close to a 100% sample of reports appearing in the Chicago, New York, Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles newspapers.
