Popoff Booted from Australian TV

1 June 2009

It seems that Peter Popoff has been permab& from Australia’s Channel Nine.

I so love Australia, right now.

“PROGRAM POPS OFF

The ailing insomniac’s best friend, the Reverend Peter Popoff, has had his early-morning television infomercials referred to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission for potential inclusion on its ScamWatch website by the NSW Fair Trading Minister, Virginia Judge. Popoff, a self-styled “faith healer” exposed by the American sceptic James Randi on camera on the American ABC network in 2007, spruiks “free Miracle Spring Water” on his 3am slots. But he appears to have mysteriously vanished from the Channel Nine schedule after ABC TV’s Media Watch asked whether Nine was pocketing a fee for screening the half-hour Peter Popoff Ministries.”
