VICE [HBO]
« on: 23 March, 2014., 04:05:46 CET »


As U.S. troops prepare to leave Afghanistan, the Taliban stoops to an all-time low by recruiting confused, innocent kids as young as six to be suicide bombers.

A kindly South Korean preacher runs an underground railroad to rescue North Korean refugees who have made it out but are still in grave danger.

In Mauritania, a country rife with poverty and food shortages, being fat is desirable, so wealthy daughters are sent to eating camps.

These are the kinds of stories - usually overlooked by mainstream media outlets - that will be presented on VICE, the news magazine series debuting FRIDAY, APRIL 5 (11:00-11:30 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO. Hosted by Shane Smith, founder of the revolutionary new media company of the same name, the weekly show is executive produced by Bill Maher, Shane Smith and Eddy Moretti, VICE's chief creative officer, with CNN's Fareed Zakaria serving as consulting producer.

"VICE's savvy, fearless irreverence has made it a premier new media brand," notes Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. "Their groundbreaking style of news coverage guarantees a show that's like nothing else on TV."

Hosted by Smith and two VICE correspondents, former intern Ryan Duffy and "Dos & Don'ts" book editor Thomas "Baby Balls" Morton, VICE smashes barriers of decorum to cover such stories as out-of-control political assassinations in the Philippines, the sumo/Mixed Martial Arts craze that has swept Senegal and the precarious nuclear stare-down in Kashmir.

Još sam prošle godine htio baciti oko na ovo, ali nisam stigao. Sad je Maher u svom showu počeo opet pričati o novoj sezoni i nagovorio i bome se nisam razočarao. Otvori ti oči o sranjima u svijetu i o manjku novinarstva koje današnji "novinari" rade. Dok CNN 7 dana u tjednu izvještava o nekom senzacionalističkom suđenju ili dok FOX News ne izvještava nikakve VIJESTI, svuda po svijetu sranja na koja se nitko ne obazire.
Ova priča u Riu u 2x01 i o pakistanskom ropstvu u 2x02 su me posebno šokirale. Prebrutalno.
U svakom slučaju, ogromna preporuka :top:
