Since it's early series 'Most Haunted' has been dogged with controversy surround the alleged 'faking of activity' for entertainment purposes, and even shows that purport to be more 'legit' such as 'Ghost Hunters' have also come under fire with the famous jacket pulling incident for example.

Even though to my knowledge nothing has been actually proven, on the surface the 'evidence' looks pretty damning.

My question is - should people who allegedly 'fake' phenomena be given a second chance to prove themselves?

I'm not sure. Once you destroy your own credibility its hard for others to trust you.

We also have to remember that Ghost Hunters is also a paranormal entertainment show, albeit one that more accuratly reflects a real investigation than others.


I think no matter what, the element of doubt will always remain for those faking activity.

yeah but unlike 'Most Haunted', the 'Ghost Hunters' guys were doing their own thing before the Sifi channel came a knocking.

yes, but in that way we should refer to them as TAPS rather than the ghost hunters. I think they have two distinct personalities.

Hmm once bitten twice shy springs to mind.....TV wise everything is tailored to entertainment to create wider audience to generate advertising revenues etc...why should we expect tv shows to be representative of a real investigation?

I say once a person has faked, they will always fake things.... don't get bitten the first time then people will believe in you, you shouldn't get a second chance in my eyes, you fake once and your only faking yourself
