I myself am entertained by the crew on Destination Truth with Josh and Ryder. They seems to investigate several different anomalies, hauntings, and just weird stuff. I like the fact that they interview local residents and people who have recently lay witness to the subject of the show. Not sure what their backgrounds are but they seem to be pretty knowledgeable and usually consult experts to base their conclusions.

Yes, they have successfully proved they are fakes.
In the US they are all focused on their gadgets, in the UK they are focused on the spirtuality it and in Australia they turned it into a game show.
I noticed that about the different mainstream programs, Ghost Hunters in the US is all about gadgets, Most Haunted in the UK is about the spirtulity and the Aussie one I saw was a game show.
The Japaneese version would most likely have a ghost dressed up and roll you over some aligators then punch you in the nuts with a 10 foot boxing glove.
I prefer Most Haunted over all of them as they arn't trying to sell gadgets they focus mostly on the story than distractions with flashy lights and shiney things like the Americans do.
I think how the different programs present it shows a lot about their culture and their focus more than the actual program content.
Ghost reports / programming follow the same pattern of UFOl reports / programs, Cultural Tracking its called.

Look at it this way, they're on TV. What do you want when you're working with television? VIEWERS. What do you do to get viewers? Almost anything. So I take everything I see on TV with a grain of salt.
So even if they produced some evidence, how do we know it's legit? It could be a simple ploy to get more viewers. But I'm just suspicious like that.
