Thompson's infamous "Gonzo journalism" was created after he wrote a 1970 article on the Kentucky Derby, "The Kentucky Derby is Decadent and Depraved", and is notable for large amounts of stream-of-consciousness writing and also for being, as a rule, almost completely unedited. This is one of the reasons, according to Thompson, that his much-vaunted ''Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas'' novel is in fact one of the worst examples of Gonzo journalism he ever wrote (importance as a novel notwithstanding), because it was not published raw, although he himself said in the case of ''Fear and Loathing'', editing was a necessary evil, since parts of the original, unedited novel were for all sakes and purposes, unpublishable. Even the edited version has a chapter in it that is nearly incomprehensible gibberish.

Hunter Stockton Thompson (July 18, 1937 February 20, 2005) was the [[AbstractApotheosis living embodiment]] of [[TheSixties the Sixties]], as well as an American journalist and novelist. He is accredited with creating GonzoJournalism, being one of the main reasons ''Magazine/RollingStone'' Magazine lasted long enough to become an institution instead of folding early like many other such mags (there's a reason he's ''still'' on the masthead), and being one of the most scathing, conniving, and vicious political writers in recent history. Though he started out in sports writing and remained well-rooted in it up to his death, his political journalism is what he will be remembered for. Of course, he was quite able to meld the two, frequently including references to sports in his political writing, and vice versa; [[UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball pro football]], a passion he shared with [[UnknownRival self-declared]] ArchEnemy UsefulNotes/RichardNixon, provided particularly fertile ground. (Thompson scored a rare one-on-one interview with Nixon with the sole constraint that football would be the only topic of discussion.)
