Psychic News, Risen from the Dead
The Psychic News, Britain’s oldest spiritualist newspaper, has come back to life under a new ownership. It may be recalled that it was closed sometime in July 2010. And after over a year, it comes back to provide us vivid information on spirituality, astrology, numerology, and other subjects related to psychics.
JV Trust bought the original publisher, Psychic Press Ltd., in October of last year. It has now released its first recently. If the issues released from the past owner are to be included, this recent one would be 4,067th one.
Psychic News used to be published weekly by the previous publisher. However, it is now sold and can be read by its followers every fortnight and is available at Spiritualist churches as well as news agents.
More than that, the newspaper will also be available online and its first issue is free for all.
Spiritual, supernatural, and paranormal issues and stories will be featured by the magazine. In its first issue, co-founder, Hannen Swaffer, writes in detail his alleged conversation with spirit press baron Lord Northcliffe.
“When Psychic News was launched 80 years ago, there was very little information about Spiritualism in the mainstream media so it fulfilled a great need,” said editor and managing director of JV Trust, Susan Farrow.
“Today, it’s difficult to find a newspaper, magazine or TV channel that doesn’t feature Spiritualism in some form on a regular basis. That, inevitably, had an impact on our sales, though I have to say that many of the mainstream media stories – particularly about celebrities – are astonishing for their lack of credibility or critical assessment,” she added.
