The Power of Belief was a ABC News Special aired on October 6, 1998, hosted by John Stossel. Stossel examines popular claims of therapeutic touch, psychic detectives, faith healing voodoo curses, channelling, and the media's lack of inquiry into pseudoscience. Includes appearances with Michael Shermer, James Randi, David Willey, JZ Knight, Susan Miller, John Monti, Ava Kay Jones, and Elmer Glover. The episode contains video of the "world's longest firewalk" which included Stossel and Willey taking part. Robert Todd Carroll called it "a very good survey of popular culture's fascination" with the paranormal. James Randi wrote "ABC-TV, in my opinion, did a really excellent job" with the show.
