[quote:Estella<3:MV8yMTY1NDc5XzM2NjA4ODE1XzJFMTY1MkQ5] Are you aware of VICE's COnnection to The Raine Group? Or the Raine Groups connection to China & Goldman Sacs? VICE is not what it appears... US merchant bank Raine Group has formed a strategic partnership with Chinese state-owned China Media Capital (CMC) to make joint investments across digital media, sports and entertainment. http://www.screendaily.com/news/asia-pacific/raine-group-forms-partnership-with-china-media-capital/5051059.article About The Raine Group Founded in 2009, the Raine Group is a global merchant bank focused exclusively on entertainment, digital media and sports. Raine's co-founders are Joseph Ravitch and Jeffrey Sine, respectively the former global head of media at Goldman Sachs and the former global head of Telecom, Media and Technology and a Vice Chairman of Investment Banking at UBS, in partnership with WME Entertainment. WME is the world's leading entertainment agency encompassing television, music, film, books, literary, theater and entertainment corporate consulting. Raine has offices in New York, Los Angeles, Palo Alto and Beijing. With a global reach, Raine focuses on growth equity investments where its deep industry experience and unique network of strategic relationships, limited partners and advisory board members can create value for portfolio companies. The Raine Group's investment portfolio includes stakes in multimedia powerhouse Vice, browser-based games giant Jagex, celebrity-curated ecommerce platform OpenSky, music festival group C3 Presents, education data company Parchment, mobile voice chat app textPlus, production house Important Studios, and Inc. company of the year Zumba Fitness.

[quote:Anonymous Coward 36037004:MV8yMTY1NDc5XzM2NjA3OTQwXzdBQUEyODcy] VICE pretends to go "experience" other cultures in their films, but really its all from a warped point of view of dumb ass liberal hipsters running on the fumes of their "American exceptionalism". VICE is most certainly controlled media, made to appear that it is not. [/quote] [/quote] Obviously you are not familiar with vice. Shane Smith and his crew have been doing this for quite some time now. Well before there was a "Vice". The investigative journalism they do is as real as it gets. I can definitely see the skepticism though, and I agree the North Korea thing does raise some eyebrows, now that Vice is with HBO. However, trying to classify everything in to the "liberal" "conservative" box is doing a great disservice to our society . Why can't people just be humans and have a individual opinion on each issue. For example, the Romney documentary was a very interesting and informative piece. And in no way did it slander or hurt Mitt Romney's chances. Just feels like you are trying to hard to make a conspiracy out of nothing on this one...but I'm always open to further information being presented to ponder on. From what you have presented though I am not convinced. [/quote] [/quote]
"VICE" .... Obama's propaganda machine?
Shane Smith CEO of VICE produced this film during the 2012 presidential election.
"The drug cartels of Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, are at war with a group of polygamous Mormons, some of whom are related to Mitt Romney. VICE founder Shane Smith went down there to investigate the conflict."
