At first I thought that VICE Magazine was going to be something new and different in US media. After all, these were hip, cool young dudes so they could not possibly be carrying water for US imperialism, the corporate state and the 1% could they? Turns out that’s all they are doing. All of their coverage on the Ukraine has been shameless pro-Ukrainian. They have been cheering these Nazis on from Day One. On many other political subjects, VICE is no different from Fox News, CNN, the New York Times, the Washington Post, Time, Newsweek, Clear Channel and the rest of the filthy media scum.
VICE is just another controlled media outlet, the voice of the Foreign Policy Establishment, the CIA, the Deep State, US multinational corporations and the 1%, as these are the folks who control 100% of large US news outlets. I did some research on VICE and apparently the founder is some sort of a rightwinger. Figures.
Reactionary hipsters. As a child of the 1970’s, I cannot think of anything more bizarre than a reactionary hipster.
Of course VICE is very good for the MSM and the US elite, because it shows that even “leftwing hipsters” (because this is what everyone assumes VICE is) agrees with Monsanto, Microsoft, ATT, Comcast, the military industrial complex, US imperialism and the Deep State. So there really is ideological solidarity in the US, according to this line. From right to left, Americans are lined up for US imperialism and militarism, the Deep State, the 1% and Corporate America. In other words, there is no dissent in America. From Right to Left, there is remarkable uniformity and to a large extent, everyone just agrees.
The lesson of VICE also apparently shows us the futility of establishing large dissident media in the US. Any new media popping up in the United States will very quickly if not instantly become part of the US Media Lie Machine Echo Chamber.
VICE is part of US state-controlled propaganda network. Nothing to see here folks, move along.
