Thanks for the clarification, Breezycooking. :)
My opinion of the man remains unchanged. Everyone is going through rough times and relying on just media reporting of a man's fate isn't fair. I still have faith in gordon, although I still prefer his UK shows over the US ones.
While I do definitely agree with you that one shouldn't rely on the media, & I also definitely do not automatically take as indisputable fact everything I read, the serious financial problems re: Gordon's empire were reiterated by the man himself in personal interviews.
Is he an excellent showman & businessman? Yes. Did he get quite a bit ahead of himself & perhaps overestimate his popularity & $$ draw-power abroad? Yes.
