Noory bites the hand that feeds him
Actually that photoshop is a lot nicer than the way I feel about Noory and Hoagland right now.
Sure I have in the past been irritated by certain George Noory statements and some Art Bell ones as well, but Monday night Noory and Richard C. Hoagland went way over the line in my opinion. The conversation started innocently enough with Noory asking Hoagland what he thought about Dr Steven Greer's interview with Art Bell over the weekend. Hoagland basically said that ufologists don't provide any evidence for their claims, unlike him and made it sound like the whole field of ufology is just a big waste of time. Then Noory got into the act by also slamming ufologists for providing no evidence and having the nerve to say that nothing had advanced in the study of ufos in the past 30 years. Hoagland agreed with that and went on some more to glorify himself and his so called evidence. Why does Hoagland think his Mars images are somehow better evidence than the numerous ufo pictures and videos? Hoagland is the same guy that used a tequila ad to try and provide evidence of a weather modification conspiracy and he has the nerve to go after ufologists? We all know that Hoagland's ego is way out of control, but to have Noory sit there and agree with him and actually join in the basing of ufologists is unbelievable! They spent almost an entire 30 minutes mocking ufologists and pretty much, though without saying it straight out like real men, called Dr. Greer a liar. They said SETI is a small organization and if people really were coming to Greer with these claims they would have been found out by now and fired. Maybe Noory doesn't realize it, but it is ufology that has made c2c the popular show that it is. Bashing ufology is the same as bashing the audience and the show itself. I don't expect much better from Hoagland who is trying to pimp his own stuff, but SHAME on you George Noory!
As I was writing this I listened to the first hour of c2c. I had expected some sort of apology from Noory, instead I got Seth Shostak. Shostak bashed Greer and his lack of evidence and what he called false information, once again Noory went right along with it and actually had the nerve to worry that Greer may somehow harm SETI. I don't mind c2c giving both sides of a story, but Noory seems to be taking sides, along with harming the people who have most helped c2c to grow and thrive. I spit on you Noory!
