Tuesday, August 07, 2007 Promoted on Fox

Sherlock Investigation's Sherry Hart appeared on Fox's "The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet" on Monday, July 30th, to discuss locating people on

Billed as "Myspace Reunions: Finding loved ones online," the program was clearly formulated to promote, a Murdoch company. Amid much laughter, the hosts, Mike and Juliet, said, " is owned by our company Newscorp." Indeed, and Fox TV are owned by Newscorp, Rupert Murdoch's conglomerate.

The program featured a father-daughter, who were reunited after being separated years ago, and a brother-sister who were split up when they were kids. All had found each other through Most of the segment was spent on the lifeless brother and sister, who looked like zombies. Mike tried valiantly to add some life to their testimonies.

Sherry was introduced as "an expert on online investigations." The hosts asked Sherry, "Is and these other sites putting you out of business?"

"People are pretty savvy these days," Sherry said, "about trying to find people on their own before they hire an investigator." She added that the process is so time-consuming and laborious that people often turn to a private investigator.

She warned about the fake entries on, and that you have to be careful about what you believe when you read on She also mentioned the pedophiles in the news on, to which Mike interjected, "But they've really cleaned up their act!"

Sherry also warned that after you go to "you'd better run your Ad-aware and keep your Norton up to date," because of the junk that infects your computer. She said that going to is "like walking barefoot in a Port Authority rest room."

Normally, Fox puts the segments from The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet on their website later that day. In this case, they failed to add this segment. Hmmm, wonder why?
