Drug free Gonzo Journalist?!?!

I think you’re doing it wrong. How can you be a Gonzo Journalist that doesn’t do booze and drugs?

    And yes, booze is a drug. So’s religion if you watch that scene in Borat. They were totally tripping balls.

    I do booze all the time. I also drink it sometimes too.


    Gonzo Journalism is telling the tale from a first person narrative. That person DOES NOT NEED TO BE ON DRUGS to write in the Gonzo style. It’s a way that the writer incorporates him/herself into the story.
    “Gonzo journalism tends to favor style over fact to achieve accuracy and often uses personal experiences and emotions to provide context for the topic or event being covered. It disregards the ‘polished’ edited product favored by newspaper media and strives for a more gritty approach. Use of quotations, sarcasm, humor, exaggeration, and profanity is common.”
