Thank God I have a place to vent. Thanks for this site.

I , too gave him a chance, and I have to say he continues to fail every night. He has an uncanny ability to screw up potentially great interviews. The worst example of this was when he had Robert Buval on and he was explaining the Grand Procession of the Equinox and how the Egyptians knew about it but intentionally didnt change their day length as we do, such that they could see the change of seasons as our planet progressed through space. Norry ruined this whole segment by asking a completely off topic STUPID question. God I wish Art would have done that interview.

He is such a poser. Worker in the Light indeed ! Right George

Yes, that is George's signature behavior. I don't know how many times I have heard a guest discuss something that is truly important -- something that the guest is building to a climax -- only to have George ask, completely out of the blue, "Tell people where they can get your book," or "How did you become interested in this area," or some similar inane question. It happens over and over again. As others have said, George is just not engaged in his interviews the way that Knapp, Ian, and Art are. I have used this example before, but I'll say again that it seems to me like George is doing his taxes during his interviews and he just steps back in when he hears a brief pause. I have never heard another interviewer who is so adept at spoiling what could be a great interview. George has his pre-made list of questions -- if he gets to the end of those questions, he has no problem simply asking one or two of them again. I always have to chuckle when George is desperately reading fast blasts looking for good questions but can't find any -- you can hear this as it happens.

George Noory:  This is your life

?First time I met George was back when I was still ridin? the rails in Texas with LBJ?s nephew and a neighbor kid named Boyd.  They were having terrible problems with farmers and livestock getting? shot with stray bullets over in Refugio County.  We had a sneakin? suspicion it was this drifter named George Noory because he?d show up at our campfire just after sunset, all wall-eyed crazy like he was hopped up cactus juice, muttering about the stars making fun of him. The first time we just laughed and George shot Boyd?s thumb off, so he had to learn to jump box cars from the other side and cast a cane pole left handed.   Anyway, after George took off we got to noticin? the skies, and right after sunset the first stars at night did appear to spell out the words, ?George Noory Sucks.?  Last we heard, George was headed out to the Davis Mountains to try and get a closer shot.?

Thank the gods this sorum exists. It's about time too!!! You know a 'host' sucks when even a casual listener knows more about the subject matter. Most of his shows he's reading prepared questions and just surfing the web during the guests' answers. He's just ridiculous. Cheers.

Know what?  Given that the guy is on 5 nights a week (dammit) I woudnt midntht so much if he FUCKING LISTEN TO THE ANSWERS and MODIFY his line of questioning based on said answers.  But noooooooooooooo . .

Guest:  I have evidence the is a secret military base, perhaps of non-terrestrial origin, under Antarctica.

George: AMAZING, now, speaking of the fertile crescent. . . .

He doesn't listen Tommy just pulls a string to make him talk.  Like a Raggedy Andy doll you just can't control what pops out of the puppets mouth.

The internet movement that is anti-Noory, this site included, has made this guy so insecure. You think he would admit to poor questioning? Or making the effort to "assess" his damage?

Sadly, as the listening thinkers leave the audience there is no shortage of listless lemmings to follow George over the cliff.  If one is not made to suffer his own consequences he can never improve upon himself.

I'm also an longtime C2C listener from the Art Bell days and the Parachat Internet (Login: skillzs) days.  I am loyal to the show but I must admit George Noory sucks. He cannot replace Art and he is a terrible Host. Art was cool smoking his cigarettes doing the show from his house. George is a boring commercial host with very little talent. George is placid and seems to be a nice guy. George is a terrible interviewer, and I do agree with many here on this site that he is just going through the motions for a paycheck. C2C was great, but now its mediocre. I wonder if Mr. Noory reads these comments? I wonder if Art Bell cares that we hate this guy? I don't mind Art is retired but at least find a worthy replacement.

Michael, Michael, Michael...

Yet one more brilliant stroke from your quazi imaginative mind! lol

Okay, okay, okay... we get it... George Noory is no Art Bell. And Jay Leno is no Johnny Carson either. The question is are there any fewer children being illigitimately conceived as a result of the change of hosts? I think not.

The world is indeed a Pandoras box, that when opened, in the words of Forrest Gump, "You never know what you're gonna get."
Due to reasons many and varied Art has seen fit to take yet another leave of absense. Perhaps to "watch the tonight show"... (nudge nudge, wink wink, say no more say no more.) He still makes occasional time which is greatly appreciated by all loyal listeners.

In the meantime out of the afformentioned box pops George. Astute, inquisitive, full of jovial verbosity... but not Art.
As it is written There is a time to every purpose under Heaven. We just happen to be living during the George Noory time. Compare it perhaps to the Carter years... kinda like scoth tape, nothing permanent, just sticky enough to hold the country together for a few years.

Listenership to C2C is up... and then there's Worker in the Light... and the Sci fi channel project... and the ever so slight hint of sexual undertones George uses when confronted with female callers of sultry voice... but I digress...

Where was I?... Oh yea... the point is, you have to give George his due. The ship is still in flight with more and more people boarding and the future is what we make it... third star to the right and straight on till morning... stiff upper lip and all that rot. Ours is not to wonder why and ask not what C2C can do for you... (which I believe may be the more unintentional reason for this site which ultimately can lead us to the higher question of)... but what can we do for C2C!

I will continue to listen to George... support him with any clever show ideas I can muster and continue to lose sleep and be even less productive on the following day. Rock on George!!!    (It's that or listen to Clark Howard... I rest my case.)

Thanks for your continued C2C related vengeance Michael, as always it is appreciated.With this site we can get our vibratory juices flowing, as it were, and make C2C the show we all know and expect it to be! God bless America!
