A Government Licensed Fortune Teller?

Yesterday I caught a glimpse of a show on Croatian public TV, a segment of which complained about "there still being no [state] regulation as to who can foretell the future". It was in relation to TV fortune tellers in the context of having to protect "more and more people" who are "in these troubled economic times" turning for advice to seers. I could not believe my ears.

Public television is actually implying that one set of fortune tellers can be more proficient at foretelling the future(!) than the other. We live in some very surreal times.
