Noory sucks, but I think Bell was far below his normal self by the end. How many times did he have Pat Buchanan, and similar people on the air to tell us about the Mexican invasion? He was never critical of extreme measures to stop people from coming into the country, or from sending people out regardless of whether they had a family. All of a sudden he has a wife that needs to immigrate and he wants everybody to allow them to immigrate to the country, even though their family was together.
Bell was a huge hypocrite by the end of his run. He screamed and cheered in favor of the Iraq War, adopting every idiotic talking point. Later he acted like he was against the war, and like it was impossible to know how it would turn out. I remember one time during one of his last shows on a Saturday they had Somewhere in Time, and then Bell's show. S.I.T. had essentially 2 hours of Bell cheering for the Iraq War. When his live show came on there was about an hour and a half of him wondering what the point about the Iraq War was, and how we ever got into that position. He acted like he was against the war from the start, and the people in favor of it were the idiots.
He was still far better than Noory though.
