It was a slow news day at Reuters Nov 7

...when they felt that running stories that Saddam's hidey-hole was discovered by psychics somehow rated as news.
[...]"You remember when they found Saddam Hussein in Iraq? A soldier walked over to a rug, lifted it and then found a trap-door and found him in there," Geller told Reuters.

"Well, I know that that soldier walked over to that rug because he got information from a 'remote viewer' from the United States."[...]
Roswell! Alien Invasions! Men in Black! Psychics! UFO's! Have we all suddenly stepped off the bus into "moron world" when a (supposedly) credible outfit like Reuters gives any inktime at all to stories like this?

Coming from al-Reuters, I don't find this even a tiny bit surprising.
