Vice Magazine, also known as the Hipster Bible (we know because a hipster told us so) is now in bed with, uhm, CNN.com.
The Furs are featured in the CNN.com/VBS.TV segment “Indie Asia: On tour with Handsome Furs.” Right now, the VBS.TV on CNN.com microsite is offering “The Vice Guide to Liberia.” The new “VBS.TV on CNN.com” will hold a prominent spot on CNN’s newly redesigned site and will show up on the CNN app for the iPhone and iPod Touch. A new report airs each Wednesday.
The best quote of the piece goes to senior vice president of CNN.com KC Estenson:
“I think of it through the lens of authenticity,” Estenson said. “CNN’s roots are in rebellion. Doing 24-hour news is rebellion.”
Uh, nope. It’s not. We just looked it up and…nope.
