Quote from: paladin1991 on August 16, 2015, 07:04:39 PMNO shit, I gotta ask. Did George give you a list of questions to ask? Or a cheat sheet on how the interview should be conducted? Did you have to submit a list of possible questions and watch dog Tommy approved the 'right' questions. I've heard often that interviews like this are scripted.I will trust you to give a truthful response.Thanks.
Quote from: Uncle Duke on August 16, 2015, 07:35:58 PMJim does not need me to defend him, but I can tell you when he interviewed Noory on his KGRA show a few months back he asked George several pointed questions read straight from live chat during the show. At least two of those questions were mine, and I'm not known for lobbing softballs. Not saying I especially liked his answers that night, but that's not Jim's fault.Remember, Noory has answered these "George v. Art" questions so many times, his responses have come close to being scripted. When Noory called into Gabcast, he got most of the same questions Jim asked (with the exception of questions from some green chick ) and gave many of the same answers. No one accused our GabCast panel of soft-soaping it.

Quote from: Georgie For President 2216 on August 17, 2015, 06:40:45 PMI see no reason to turn an interview into a series of accusations or a battle of wills, which you didn't. I thought you did a good job of covering some of the questions most relevant to us, Noory's critics, while keeping the tone respectful. As they say, you can't squeeze blood out of a stone.

Quote from: Paper*Boy on August 18, 2015, 12:40:14 AMNor do I. Challenging the guest need not be contentious, Art Bell asks tough questions and isn't disrespectful.There is no real point in having a fight, but there is no point to letting someone who's full of shit - like George Noory - simply put out his talking points unchallenged either. (Obviously when Jim has a better guest - someone who actually has something interesting to say - when they say something new and/or compelling, that's what should be followed up on)Someone who wants to have a show or podcast ought to have the talent and ability to walk the fine line between tough and hostileWell, did you read my posts? It isn't about asking a series of questions off of cue cards, agreeing with the guest, and going on to the next one. That's what Noory does. It's about follow-up, having a conversation. I don't want to spend a lot of time, but let me give you a few examplesWhen George says he puts in 8 hours of show prep every day, you could have asked whether he looks over the news copy ahead of time - so many mispronounced words and just plain poor reading, he can't have bothered to have read it ahead of time, and it shows. So why doesn't he? The same goes for reading his cue cards - he claims he doesn't use any but his mispronunciations and malapropos are as stunning as they are constant - he has to be reading something, and for the first time. He often seems to know little about the guest - if fact in the past he's even mentioned that he 'wants to hear and react to the guest the same time the listener does' - how does that square with 8 hours of show prep? When he talked about it simply being a matter of different styles, you could have followed up by telling him it often sounds as if he is preoccupied with other things and isn't listening - asking the same question more than once, asking questions that the guest has just answered during his previous comments, cutting them off just as they are about to get to the point they have spent several minutes building up to. None of this - and much else - is attributable to 'a different style', it's just plain laziness.When he talks about how interested he has always been in the paranormal, you could have asked him why he doesn't seem to have any good questions he's always wanted answered.A good interviewer should be able to ask these in a direct but non-confrontational way. Like I said, otherwise it's nothing new and rather pointlessThis is just off the top of my head, barely the tip of the iceberg, maybe not even the best examples. If you really don't know when he's evading questions and just putting out his spin, when he's making claims about his 'style' that just aren't true, and don't know what to follow up with, read some of the George Noory Sucks thread to get a feel for the issues about him that have come up over and over from a variety of (mostly former) listeners. (I'd recommend reading a few random posts from earlier on, it's gotten tiresome pointing out the same things over and over so there hasn't been as much repetition of the common complaints of late).I get that not everyone is willing to challenge a guest, or has the ability to do so effectively without turning it into a fight, or maybe fears doing so will result in others not willing to be interviewed, but IMO that's what a good interviewer would do. If you don't want to be tough, but don't want to provide a forum for someone like George Noory to put out a bunch of drivel either, then don't schedule those interviews

Quote from: Paper*Boy on August 30, 2015, 09:24:12 PMI know you don't take kindly to advice, but publicly dissing Art Bell and allowing George Noory to put out his talking points unchallenged may not have been the best moves..
Quote from: malliard on August 31, 2015, 12:33:30 PMwell sadly again, I reached out to Art before reaching out to George.I tried via facebook, email and here without answer.Only after getting George on the report did Art finally decline.As for questions for george and the lack of attacking him on select points, you can start your own show and book him as your guest and see if you can ask the questions and get anymore of an answer..Have done interviews for over 4 years now, you can hear went someone has there talking to point to address a question, so if you follow up you will just get short answers based off the talking about.I would think a huge fan of talk radio would have noticed this as well.
