It can come from the preying of the viewers ignorance by using an instrument improperly to tricks involving translucent fishing line or a touching by some unknown source in the dark without the occurrence being captured by a device.
If you were offered by a prominent network, an opportunity to be part of a new show involving substantial money per episode, would you be willing to compromise your values and integrity presenting evidence you are highly suspicious of?
I realize many here on PS aren’t hardcore investigators trying to follow a methodology that encourages authentic evidence but still the question can be applied broadly, “Would you be willing to sell out knowingly of chicanery being present just for the sizzle factor and the monetary gain?”
Please do not feel you have to appease others or be in fear of retaliatory comments. This statement isn’t meant as a judging. I’m sure a few well-established investigators or out of work actors have been offered this type of proposition requiring them to evaluate this moral conduct.
Recently this question has weighed upon me for a variety of different reasons.
