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.
I agree with you. I don't get a newspaper, try to not read news online, mainly because I don't always trust what I hear and prefer not to be depressed all the time. :P My support of gordon was from my impression of his character from the various shows he's been on, mostly his BBC america programs more than what I read about him. I made an assumption, a dangerous thing, about his profitability based on past success. hence why I thanked you on giving me more facts on the matter. I admit I'm a biased Gordon Ramsay fan. If I could meet the man in Real Life to get a clearer image of him I would. but we all know the success of that. I may know my way around a kitchen, but I think my chances of getting on hell's kitchen are slim to none. :P
