There are many reasons that evidence of so-called 'paranormal phenomena'—revelatory of the afterlife and 'the God Force'—has been perpetually ignored throughout mainstream media during recent decades while fear-oriented and superstition-oriented videos and articles pertaining to anomalous phenomena proliferate across the Internet. Journalists may have little correct knowledge about these subjects and there may be assumed imperatives encompassing mistaken perspectives of social consciousness in addition to corporate news topic directives from their company executives.
A medium known for manifestations of people and 'simulacrums' of people from the ascended realm was Helen Duncan (1895-1956). Psychic News founder/editor Maurice Barbanell wrote The Case of Helen Duncan (1945) at the time of Duncan’s release from the Holloway Jail of London. She had been sentenced to nine months imprisonment due to prosecution initiated under the Witchcraft Act of 1735. Barbanell was among the many people who considered this a flagrant miscarriage of justice. Helen became a person of renown to thousands of people who'd witnessed firsthand the phenomena at her sittings yet there would be further persecution by law enforcement authorities. As recounted at acommemorative website(and by biographers), the end of Helen's Earth life resulted after the entranced medium was seized by a plainclothes police officer during a séance. The team of police were completely unaware of potential hazards upon disrupting séance room conditions.
