It would be horribly horribly awful, but I think there would have to be a US incident of the ilk of the Phillipe Neniere and Agnis Jarde affair in Zambia before the press would take note. Let's hope nothing like that comes to pass.
there is a story here but nothing as big as the 20/20 expose in 1988 has been done again. Perhaps to the really BIG networks Ramtha is old news or just another two-bit sideshow like the Camping thing a week ago. If it won't grab ratings, no producer will waste their time or the network's money. iow, it is properly a local story and Nissqually news is not sophisticated enough to take on a major effort or a potential lawsuit..
The second problem is this: Since the 20/20 expose [that Judy mockingly called "30/30" referencing the high caliber gun and bullet she felt after seeing the result] JZ and company, as much as they love the limelites [Larry King, etc], are very chary toward investigative journalism as in Dateline, 60 Minutes, or Frontline (is that still going?). One way to stop such snoopy shows in their tracks is to refuse to participate and threaten to sue if anything is shown without an "equal" opportunity to rebutt on the program itself.
eg, Dateline 1998 did a great expose on a bizarre, comparatively innocuous cult in Sedona, AZ called Aquarian Concepts Community led by "Gabriel" (Tony Develin). It is another New Age sect that involves channeling, reincarnation that I have had clients from:

My guess is that most of the readers of EMF never heard of Gabriel or ACC....such is the state of Ramtha in the public awareness as well. No more hard hitting journalistic shows were done on ACC either.
