When I think of gonzo journalism I also think Hunter S Thompson, he is obviously the father of the movement. The best thing about Thompson and his books is that there absolutely outrageous. The fact that this man could insert himself into these different kinds of situations and actually survived to write about them is mind-boggling.
I have nothing but respect for Hunter S Thompson in his means of gonzo journalism, but this doesn't mean that I necessarily agree or would trust a news report written by Hunter S Thompson.
I definitely understand the in his early days of learning journalism he was in fact a news reporter that wrote on objective principles with accuracy in mind. However, in his later years I truly wonder if he was still capable of producing such objective work as what a true piece of journalism reporting should be.
