TAPS has been proved to be faked, in most things.

So are all those measurement instruments, etc. really worth anything while searching for the paranormal?

What bugs me the most about these shows......( even more than whether they are being entirely honest or whether they might be faking a bit ), is their tendency to show little more than their own faces!!
I tune in to see something that might be a bit paranormal, not to watch a close up of some guy's mug in the glare of the video camera.......even if this guy has really, really seen something, I still want to see that something rather than his reaction to seeing it!!
And.....If they hear a creepy sound, they start babbling to one another and then they get up and 'go look' for the source.....personally I would be inclined to stand still, hold my breath and hope I could hear it again!! ( One of them did this when they visited the Lizzie Borden house, .....stomping around and yelling 'what was that?', and 'we heard something!')
Some of their shows sound great.......but they drive me crazy when I try to watch.

On a specific episode, I remember them admitting that someone from a property they were investigation had tampered with the camera, to make the sheets on a bed look as if they were moving on there own.
These are just some factors that really leaves me hanging on the fence when making a decision whether they are believable or just plain fraud.
