Gonzo journalism

Gonzo journalism is a style of journalism, written without claims of objectivity including the reporter as part of the story via a first-person narrative. The word "gonzo" is believed to have been first used in 1970 to describe an article by Hunter S. Thompson, who popularized the style, it is an energetic first-person participatory writing style in which the author is a protagonist, it draws its power from a combination of social critique and self-satire. It has since been applied to other subjective artistic endeavors. Gonzo journalism involves an approach to accuracy that concerns the reporting of personal experiences and emotions, in contrast to traditional journalism, which favors a detached style and relies on facts or quotations that can be verified by third parties. Gonzo journalism disregards the strictly-edited product favored by newspaper media and strives for a more personal approach. Use of sarcasm, humor and profanity is common. Thompson, among the forefathers of the new journalism movement, said in the February 15, 1973, issue of Rolling Stone, "If I'd written the truth I knew for the past ten years, about 600 people—including me—would be rotting in prison cells from Rio to Seattle today.

Absolute truth is a rare and dangerous commodity in the context of professional journalism." The term "gonzo" was first used in connection with Hunter S. Thompson by The Boston Globe magazine editor Bill Cardoso in 1970, he described Thompson's article "The Kentucky Derby Is Decadent and Depraved", written for the June 1970 edition of Scanlan's Monthly, as "pure Gonzo journalism". Cardoso claimed that "gonzo" was South Boston Irish slang describing the last man standing after an all-night drinking marathon, he claimed that it was a corruption of the French Canadian word "gonzeaux", which means "shining path", although this is disputed. Another speculation is that the word may have been inspired by the 1960 hit song "Gonzo" by New Orleans rhythm and blues pianist James Booker; this possibility is supported by a 2007 oral biography of Thompson, which states that the term is taken from a song by Booker but does not explain why Thompson or Cardoso would have chosen the term to describe Thompson's journalism.

The 2013 documentary Bayou Maharaja: The Tragic Genius of James Booker quotes Thompson's literary executor as saying that the song was the origin of the term. According to a Greg Johnson biographical note on Booker, the song title "Gonzo" comes from a character in a movie called The Pusher, which in turn may have been inspired by a 1956 Evan Hunter novel of the same title. Thompson himself first used the term referring to his own work on page 12 of the counterculture classic Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, he wrote, "But what was the story? Nobody had bothered to say. So we would have to drum it up on our own. Free Enterprise; the American Dream. Horatio Alger gone mad on drugs in Las Vegas. Do it now: pure Gonzo journalism." Thompson based his style on William Faulkner's notion that "fiction is the best fact". While the things that Thompson wrote about are true, he used satirical devices to drive his points home, he wrote about recreational drugs and alcohol use, which added subjective flair to his reporting.

The term "gonzo" has come into use to describe journalism in Thompson's style, characterized by a drug-fueled stream of consciousness writing technique. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas followed the Mint 400 piece in 1971 and included a main character by the name of Raoul Duke, accompanied by his attorney, Dr. Gonzo, with defining art by Ralph Steadman. Although this book is considered a prime example of gonzo journalism, Thompson regarded it as a failed experiment, he had intended it to be an unedited record of everything he did as it happened, but he edited the book five times before publication. Thompson would instigate events himself in a prankish or belligerent manner, document both his actions and those of others. Notoriously neglectful of deadlines, Thompson annoyed his editors because he submitted articles late, "too late to be edited, yet still in time for the printer". Thompson wanted his work to be read. Historian Douglas Brinkley said gonzo journalism requires no rewriting and uses transcribed interviews and verbatim telephone conversations."I don't get any satisfaction out of the old traditional journalist's view:'I just covered the story.

I just gave it a balanced view,'" Thompson said in an interview for the online edition of The Atlantic. "Objective journalism is one of the main reasons American politics has been allowed to be so corrupt for so long. You can't be objective about Nixon." Thompson felt. Gonzo journalism has now become a bona fide style of writing that concerns itself with "telling it like it is", similar to the New Journalism of the 1960s, led by Tom Wolfe and championed by Lester Bangs, George Plimpton, Terry Southern, John Birmingham, is considered a subgenre of New Journalism; when asked whether there was a difference between the two, Thompson answered, "Yeah, I think so. Unlike Tom Wolfe or Gay Talese, for instance, I never try to reconstruct a story. They're both much better reporters than I am, but I don't think of myself as a reporter."In 1998, Christopher Locke asserted that the webzine genre is descended from gonzo journalism, a claim that has since been extended to social media.
