National Geographic meets Hunter S. Thompson
Friday marks the debut of Vice Media Group’s latest venture - a weekly news magazine on HBO. Vice, known for its print magazine and documentaries, is in a unique position among other media outlets: It’s growing, especially among younger readers.
On Vice’s decision earlier this year to bring Dennis Rodman, of all people, to North Korea as fuel for a documentary:

"We’re not saying Dennis Rodman is Morley Safer. He’s an absurd character and North Korea’s an absurd place,” Smith said over one of his trademark boozy lunches. But, he was quick to add, “I have a one-of-a-kind documentary with one-of-a-kind access to one of the hardest countries in the world to film.”
