Vice is one of the fastest growing media empires, but it has humble punk rock roots. So is its CEO the world’s greatest businessman or punk’s biggest sellout?
Powerful Shane Smith.
YES YES YES YES!!!! This guy’s a legend!!!
yes I love Vice
Shane is the man…and that’s not a problem
Some of the darkest things I’ve seen from all around the world has been from Vice, very good punches in the face.
He is high as fuck
he idolizes Ruprt Murdock. hes a fake alternative media
Vice non-political?! ROFLMAO what about the whole global warming propaganda? one-sided anti-Putin narratives? yeah. very non-politicial. what a piece of shit Shane Smith idolizes Ruprt Murdock and has his son sittin in Vice News board . hes a fake alternative media
Shane is an asshole and a douchebag but by God he knows how to make a good news documentary is a sad thing he stopped doing them.
“We’re not political.” That’s rubbish. I saw the docus on Syria. It was a completely one sided narrative. Nothing on the Assad side.
The thing is, when the wrongs are so gigantic, being actually neutral means taking an honest stand and vice didnt do that in Syria. Vice is like that bystander/witness to the mafia men harassing a regular guy that doesn’t say anything when the police comes, just keeps quiet. Being neutral would’ve meant telling it how it is, saying he doesn’t see it is not neutral, it’s an act of omission or commision
I love vice, I have been watching it since the early 2010s, and I want to congratulate you, Shane smith, for making vice into what it is.
His audience did not care about the news AS IT WAS DELIVERED BACK IN THE 90s and 00’s. All he had to do was put it in a format that his audience cared about.
Young people don’t not watch the TV news because they don’t care about international news, they don’t watch it because they don’t care about celebrity gossip and boring fluff pieces. Network TV news is pretty much all celebrity divorces, winners of the world’s cutest puppy competition, and whatever crazy thing Donald Trump said. If we wanna see those things, there are plenty of better places we can go. We watch the news to see the news.
I liked Shane & VICE until they sold out to HBO (not a sell-out?!)
It’s not hard to feed biased bullshit to millennials, they’re brainless sheep.
Vice really isn’t great anymore.
It’s incredibly difficult to pursue any kind of journalism without some kind of perceived bias on one side of the spectrum or the other. I, like many others, consume a lot of information on current events, and if I’ve learned anything it’s that you need to do your own self-reporting somewhat. If you’re interested in a different take on a news story, then seek out different outlets/sources and weigh them against one another. Don’t rely on authority so much. Brian Williams and Bill O’Reilly are both good examples of what journalism looks like when you put too much faith in certain individuals. Lastly I’ll just add that if what you find in your search for facts upsets you, I’m afraid that’s the reality of it and you’ll have to accept and address it as such. P.S. Just for giggles. “We all know reality has a well known liberal bias.” – Stephen Colbert
i used to collect the magazines in the 90’s ( in Montréal) to read their great articles about politics, art, music and the hot or not section. now i follow them on the web. they do a great job with alot of original pièces. people that call them sell outs , don’t read Vice.
Don’t pay the people that work for you, or pay them peanuts. Simple strategy for success.
“Did the old media come to you?” Asks Colbert.
Uhm, Vice is owned by Fox News’ owner Rupert Murdoch contrary to Shane’s assertion that he isn’t “sold out.”
Heck yea I fucking love vice news. Keep up the awesome guests Colbert!
Vice is the closest thing we have to hard hitting journalism. Huge props.
i really like him and i like vice
Yay Simon Ostrovsky!!!!
what’s the pin he’s wearing? I like some of the’d stuff Vice does but I’ve seen some poor portrayals of European stories laced with sensationalist bias. Like all media, you have to interrogate what you read and make up your own mind as to what you believe.
He just piggybacked on all the work Jim and Debbie Goad did and took their idea to bring it to what it is now, he did f**k all.
No, Vice wouldn’t be where they are without Gavin Mcinnes.
“I’m not a sell out yet.” anyone who reads this do yourself a favor and google “Vice Rupert Murdoch”
Hate when people say someone is biased when they are biased towards fact. The day vice is caught purposely lying to us is the day I call them bias.
During the outro I saw the drummer using his foot to muffle so sound as he hit it and I thought that was an awesome idea. Just sayin.
