Gonzo journalism is a style of ''reporting'' based on William Faulkner's idea that the best fiction is far more true than any kind of journalism -- and the best journalists have always known this. True gonzo reporting needs the talents of a master journalist, the eye of an artist/photographer and the heavy balls of an actor. Because the writer must be a participant in the scene, while he's writing it -- or at least taping it, or even sketching it. Or all three. Probably the closest analogy to the ideal would be a film director/producer who writes his own scripts, does his own camera work and somehow manages to film himself in action, as the protagonist or at least a main character.
~ Hunter S. Thompson - [Journalism and Journalists]

He who binds to himself a joy doth the winged life destroy. But he who kisses the joy as it flies lives in Eternity's sunrise.

I hate journalists. There is nothing in them but tittering jeering emptiness. They have all made what Dante calls the Great Refusal. The shallowest people on the ridge of the earth.
~ William Butler Yeats - [Journalism and Journalists]

I have no greater joy then to hear that my children walk in truth. [John 4]
~ Bible - [Joy]

I still believe that if your aim is to change the world, journalism is a more immediate short-term weapon.
~ Tom Stoppard - [Journalism and Journalists]

If I'd written all 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 very rare and dangerous commodity in the context of professional journalism.
~ Hunter S. Thompson - [Journalism and Journalists]

Quotation Bullet

If, for instance, they have heard something from the postman, they attribute it to ''a semi-official statement''; if they have fallen into conversation with a stranger at a bar, they can conscientiously describe him as ''a source that has hitherto proved unimpeachable.'' It is only when the journalist is reporting a whim of his own, and one to which he attaches minor importance, that he defines it as the opinion of ''well-informed circles.''
~ Evelyn Waugh - [Journalism and Journalists]

Quotation Bullet

In America journalism is apt to be regarded as an extension of history: in Britain, as an extension of conversation.
~ Anthony Sampson - [Journalism and Journalists]
