= That is why his questions are generally pointless and uninteresting, because that might be interpreted as being critical, and god knows he doesn't want to be held responsible in any way for anything that he says. So really the show is just one long, extended, malodorous Noory brain fart. And somehow, he thinks this is the way to get the truth out. What a putz.
George Noory wouldn't recognize the truth if it kicked him square in the ass. He makes all these claims about the hours he puts in, but when it comes time to actually interviewing someone, it's painfully obvious he hasn't even so much as skimmed the chapter titles of the book the person wrote, or googled background information on him or his subject. With people like Hoagland, he takes the easy route: he lets them ramble on and on making more and more ridiculous assertions, until you have to wonder if they sense his disinterest and are having fun with him.
I listened to Art for a long time, Ian and now Knapp and they are always prepared when a guest comes on. They manage to get interesting conversations going, real give and take, and along the way I've always learned something. They also call BS when they hear it, not in a confrontational way, but in a way that lets the guest know they know he or she is full of shit. And that's great, too. There have been so many times when, by chance, a guest got a good, interesting conversational flow going and then when it was George's turn to ask a followup question, he just killed the flow with a moronic non-sequitur that left no doubt in anyone's mind that he is not up to the job of interviewing, and is, in fact, an idiot.
All this woo woo handwavery stuff, the "Sumpins out there" or "I'm seeking the trooth" is nothing more than a cover up for someone who has very little going on upstairs. At least with Art and someone like Hoagland or Dames, it was like sitting around the campfire swapping stories. YOu knew it was bullshit, he knew it was bullshit, but it was entertaining and fun. Pointing and laughing is about the only fun there is in C2C with George at the helm.
