    Vice

    I found these guys (Vice) a few years ago on youtube and couldn't stop watching. Their reporting is excellent and very neutral; though, I have more an appreciation for their coverage of culture than news.

    Here are a few of the "most popular" videos:





    And here's some actual reporting:

    Even when they report on news it's cultural reporting. Guilty pleasure.

    I like them. Their reporting has an amateurish, tabloid quality, but they cover some interesting subject matter.

    Their Russian Roulette coverage of Ukraine has been rewarding to watch. Unfortunately I haven't been catching up on much past dispatch 20 (though will shortly, as most of the coverage isn't very extensive.)

    My hipster ex used to make me look at Vice's Dos and Don'ts and the Fashion Trend Report. He used to get photographed for the Argentinean versions of this on the street and at clubs. I'm kinda biased against it now. *shudder*

    I love their videos, but the majority of their articles are pretty crappy.

    They have great ideas for topics - but their style and quality has gone to pure shit in the past couple of years. Some of their stuff is just purely scripted sensationalism at this point.

    Like, what is this bullshit right here? Fucking Blair Witch Project? Come on. Skip to 23:50 and watch a few minutes from that point. Awful.
