(Web Lecturalia)

“El libro propone una aproximación a l. a. nave del misterio desde otra nave más inquietante y sorprendente: l. a. realidad. Antonio Luis Moyano ha realizado un análisis crítico, pero singularmente ágil del que quizás es el más grande fenómeno mediático dedicado a lo paranormal de los últimos tiempos.”

“En definitiva, una obra que destapa a los modernos vendedores de misterio centrándose en el más mediático, Iker, cuyo autor sorprendentemente es amigo y había colaborado en ocasiones puntuales en sus exhibits semanales.”
(Web Mundo parapsicológico)

“Temas como Ochate, el hundimiento del immense, l. a. Sábana Santa, edificios encantados, apariciones fantasmales, el Triángulo de las Bermudas, el Código Secreto de los angeles Biblia o las Caras de Bélmez, nos ayudarán a comprender cómo el incremento de los angeles audiencia es prioritario ante el rigor y los angeles veracidad.”
(Blog Me gustan los libros)

Una obra que destapa todos los errores y manipulaciones en las que incurren los capitanes de los angeles Nave del Misterio con el único objetivo de aumentar los angeles audiencia y conseguir fama y fortuna.

Iker, el mago del misterio es un libro que ninguna editorial ha osado publicar hasta este momento ya que destapa las manipulaciones y los tejemanejes de dos vacas sagradas del periodismo paranormal: Iker Jiménez y su mujer Carmen Porter. Dividido en dos grandes bloques, en el primero de ellos el autor analizará l. a. presencia y el mercado de lo paranormal en los medios de comunicación para repasar después el ascenso de Iker y Carmen y los medios de los que se valen para mantener sus altas cotas de audiencia y sus masivas ventas de libros; en l. a. segunda parte el autor contrastará l. a. verdad de siete casos paranormales con el modo en que se han tratado en los programas de Iker, poniendo de manifiesto el trato exagerado – cuando no falso - de los temas en aras del espectáculo y en detrimento del rigor.

Antonio Luis Moyano es un conocedor de primera mano de los interiores del periodismo paranormal, pues ha sido colaborador del propio Iker Jiménez y discípulo de Jiménez del Oso. Está en disposición, por tanto, de contrastar las informaciones reales con las informaciones manipuladas y fabricadas por el presentador de Cuarto Milenio. l. a. conversación de los astronautas de Apollo XI que en realidad es un extracto de una película, el caso de las niñas de Navalperal de Pinares o los angeles afirmación de que conoce los angeles identidad de los muertos que aparecen plasmados en las caras de Bélmez son algunos de los desmanes cometidos por Iker Jiménez con el fin de conseguir más audiencia.

Razones para comprar l. a. obra:

- Es l. a. primera obra que analiza el fenómeno mediático de Iker Jiménez dentro del landscape del periodismo paranormal.

- El libro analiza el ascenso a l. a. cima del periodista y su mujer y desvela datos fundamentales de su éxito que son desconocidos para el gran público.

- El autor hace un repaso por los gazapos y los errores documentales, pero también de las deliberadas manipulaciones, en los que el programa ha incurrido.

- los angeles información del libro ha sido obtenida de primera mano: o bien por el autor cuando colaboraba con el presentador o bien por los propios colaboradores de Cuarto Milenio y de Milenio 3.

Un libro que destapa sin tapujos cómo ha ido ascendiendo en el mundo del periodismo paranormal Iker Jiménez y su mujer y cómo ambos pervierten datos, inventan hechos u ocultan informaciones para mantener los angeles audiencia y l. a. fama.

Anche tanti geniali, o non geniali, poveri cristi, di quelli che ogni giorno si arrampicano sugli specchi according to sopravvivere; e alcuni esseri furbissimi e cattivi: raccontano le memorie. E le memorie toccano tanto musica e compositori quanto interpreti e interpretazioni. Isotta ricorda decine d'interpretazioni della stessa opera, dello stesso brano; e le richiama davanti al lettore; e quando descrive un'opera musicale, grazie alle sue parole è come se davanti al lettore venisse eseguita. Ma le sue esperienze non sono solamente musicali. In uno stile classico e fluido a un pace, Isotta cube dei suoi poeti, scrittori, pittori: di Virgilio e Manzoni, di Flaubert e Pirandello, di Pascoli e Gottfried Benn, di Giotto, Raffaello, Bronzino, Reni, Tiepolo. Propone di risistemare il Settecento musicale; parla di Alessandro Scarlatti, di Haydn, di Beethoven, di Verdi, di Wagner e del teatro comico napoletano. E dei suoi Santi: Gennaro, Patrizia, Antonio, Padre Pio e Ipazia, pagana. Ognuno in questo libro troverà il suo.
