Exactly. Well, remember, George isn't educated
in the paranormal — basically, he receives a "cheat sheet" of questions and answers from
his guest, and he never strays from the prepared notes. As soon as he strays from the cheat sheet,
he says something incredibly stupid like
"How was evolution created?"
That's an actual George Noory line, BTW.
So, George doesn't know how
into his guests for information. He asks what the guests tell him
to ask, so the guests
always seem to have an answer prepared — they are
, just as all the questions are prepared.
In exchange, these guests always make a point
of mentioning what a "fine interviewer" George is. Well, yeah, as long as he follows their
It's propaganda, the "Big Lie" — keep telling the audience what a fine interviewer
George is, and eventually they'll start believing
But, seriously, the IQ of the whole show — and
the audience — plummeted when George took over.
Consequently, when the weekend host Ian Punnet came in and — gasp! — spoke with polysyllabic words and compound sentences, the illiterate George
Noory audience started whining and complaining: "That Ian Punnet guy thinks he's so smart!"
Well, he IS
. That's why George Noory fans hated Ian so much.
Punnet is educated, well read in all sorts of subjects, and can not only dig
for info from guests, he debates
the guests and
; and, most importantly, Punnet calls the guests' bluff when they LIE
(which is often).
George Noory is incapable of even remotely
of Punnet's skills. Like, George is so far removed from Ian Punnet's level,
from Punnet won't reach George Noory for another 4,000 years.
