FOX News Favorite Magicians

Discussions of new films, books, television shows, and media indirectly related to magic and magicians. For example, there may be a book on mnemonics or theatrical technique we should know or at least know about.

"This week the 2009 World Magic Awards aired on MTV"?

I believe it was on "MyTV network"

Besides that error (possibly a simple typo or something done by a copy editor who thought they saw a typo), I find it interesting that the writerswho, by the way, are not FOX News correspondents but writers for a Pop Culture Community site called GetBack.combelieve that Doug Henning did not do much for the [magic] industrys hip factor when, in fact, Doug Henning is largely credited for saving the industry. (And then they list him in the top 10; go figure.)

Also, their naivet is quite glaring when they can rationalize that David Copperfield can have a stunt double but, apparently, a motorcycle cant.

Its great that Ed Alonzo made the list. Who said the Britney gig was a bad idea?

Any positive coverage of magic on a mainstream site is a good thing.
