Top Definition
A form of journalism invented by Hunter S. Thompson. It involves the reporter reporting the action as he/she is in it. Elements are part experience and part fiction. The best example of Gonzo journalism is Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. It was a book from 1971 made into a Johnny Depp movie in 1998.
From fisrt glance, I knew immedialtely that this God-forshaken rest stop was no place for a Gonzo journalist.
