A sideliner in “traditional media” providers, Vice News continues to push the limits of the platforms by broadcasting live, unedited from a world event in Ferguson. Not just a live report but live broadcasts for hours upon hours – live on YouTube.
I am surprised that no online tech or media pundits have mentioned that this is a considerable turning point for Vice News. While the event itself has great merit the way in which they are broadcasting sets a new level that I don’t think even the traditional outlets fully understand.
No other news outlet is providing this type of journalism.
