I chose to assume they've whores for clicks, and they aren't any dumber than strippers love us.

The "whore metaphor" has never failed me, and they fucking hate it.

Whoa whoa whoa.

I was still planning on drinking it afterwards. That's not cool.

You're sadistic.

That's what you do if you want instant vodka followed by an explosion as your airlock tries to vent several atmospheres of Co2. Still, not sure if the yeast deserve that.

I liked that one episode where a feminist talked to an all-female Amazonian tribe in Eastern Europe, where they called themselves feminist, knew how to fight and such, but had straight marriages with MEN (!!!), held traditional values of sewing, taking care of the kids, etc. (not saying every woman is made for that, but hey, if some like it).

VICE feminist ended up leaving mad because those feminists didn't adhere to her idea of feminism, so they were wrong, even though they were better feminists than that SJW would ever be. It was like jealousy goodness.

Feminism doesn't really mean anything (or rather it means whatever a feminist wants it to) so it's hard to say they are "better feminists." It does sound like they're not shitheads though, which is nice.

Even then they did some shady stuff in it. Their guide would tell them not to do X and then they would purposely do X and act like they were ignorant, or splicing together multiple recordings to make it seems like the guides were reacting to things.

The one that put me off was the one where they went to cherynobl. They were told that it was a good idea to drink some alcohol first, so they got slammed and acted like every stereotype of ignorant americans abroad. I felt so bad for what their guide was having to put up with I closed the tab and never went back.

Then their print media site started ranting about how evil MRAs are, which pretty much sealed the deal.

There was an AMA when Vice was bought by Rupert Murdoch where a person asked the current editor if being bought by a main stream media company.

Considering that shortly after Murdoch put $70 million into VICE (only 5% of what Vice is valued at), Rupert's son was put on the board I think you have an answer without Shane needing to address this.... it influenced VICE a lot. I will still watch VICE's shows and visit the website often, but the opinions and and stories on serious issues should be taken with a grain of salt for sure. You cannot deny though that when it began, Shane's heart was no doubt in the right place. When they got the green light by HBO for their own show, I'm sure it turned the heads of people who would want to invest. Murdoch being one of them.

Response:

well well well I just noticed all of this happened after I signed off. SO here is my answer "Why would it?" because a) 5% of ownership buys you say in... nothing. Biz matters, editorial, anything. This should be self-evident but apparently it isn't. B) he is running the largest media company in the world if you think that he has any time for VICE even if he wanted to you have no idea how things work in the real world. c) I vote 95% of the board why? so as to keep control of all matters editorial and commercial. We did this deal to stay independent it is unheard of to do non-majority deals why? Because they do not have a say in any of the management of the company. and D) Vice is successful because of what we do and say to change that would hurt the business, no one would want to change that. We change the content of the company on one criteria - that we like it - period

2 Years Later, they are a clickbait factory.

Is it possible that the hateful things are said more forcefully, while the loving things are said more gently? The end result being that more of your spit winds up contaminating the hated food, and less on the cherished food, and that it has a lot more to do with your foul bacteria than your foul mouth?

Yeah, I call my dog mean things all the time, but with a soft voice. Then I show her my love my screaming her and looking all mad, and she runs away. Wonder if it has to do with tone.

No but seriously, this "science" project is fucking stupid. This was even proven by MythBusters in one of their episodes, that if I had to guess, was from the 00s, so at least 6+ years.

I read that as "screwing" for a moment.

Sadly Mythbusters seem to be trying their hardest to be vice these days.

They have one lone person in Japan producing decent content, the rest can get pretty terrible. They put in so much more effort for their videos it's almost depressing.
