          to me it always seemed as if they imploded mostly by themselves. their leftist proselytizing scared off all the rightists and centrists and why should shitlibs watch vice when there are more prominent and omnipresent news providers around like cnn and all the other oldies

Then they got told that Azov and Right Sector were a bunch of nazis. Maybe they were/are a bunch of nazis even, but how the hell does that at all explain, let alone excuse, Russia invading them through imported militias. No where in the list of grievances ever given by Russia or Donbas did they claim that it was Azov oppression ethnic Russians. They just said Kiev was out of touch with that part of Ukraine and they weren’t counting their votes.

            Vice was a victim of its own success. They had been a scrappy "alt" site that didn't overthink what they were doing. They were like aggressive teenagers with fresh eyes shoving around the corrupt, sclerotic, old, Iraq-era media which had started to fall apart. But as this took off, they suddenly received a ton of venture capital and had hundreds of millions of dollars fall in their lap. This is when things really changed. They opened up a studio in Brooklyn, hired tons of hipsters to churn out articles, and were going to become HBO or something. They had all kinds of ideas.

            They were also fundamentally rooted in Web 2.0 and social media. Then as they shifted into a venture-backed company, they shifted focus on growth first and revenue second. Vice told their investors (who also had lots of cheap cash from low-interest rate policies) that traffic was digital oil: the more traffic you get, the more Vice's value will go up, and this is going to be a huge business. So the liberal retardation, gross stuff, etc. was really clickbait that would get a lot of traffic (even "hate" reading, 4chan linking to a story and grrrrr'ing about it: that's traffic). Everything became about traffic. The problem is that commodities are defined by scarcity, and traffic turned out to be essentially unlimited, which meant traffic stopped having any real value, and they went bankrupt. The same thing happened to Buzzfeed.

                Thx. (Worked in media for a bit.) But it's a business and what's going under the hood can reflect in the content. Vice (or nu-Vice, post-VC funding) was a product of its time. There's a danger of alienating your own audience and then self-immolating, but I don't think that was the problem as much as getting lots of traffic and then that turning out to be worthless and you've still got to pay for hundreds of hipsters to live in New York churning out gross clickbait. The business model breaks down in a boom-and-bust cycle. Also since you're riding on social-media virality, a slight tweak in Facebook's algorithm can kill you.

                Or think about conservative media like Breitbart that went all-in on Trump. It made eminent business sense because they were getting so much traffic from older conservatives on Facebook by talking about Trump all the time. They also have a big "home page" that people glance at. Vice is bankrupt but if they had gone all-in on shilling Bernie and turned into a propaganda factory for him, signed a contract with Chapo Trap House and get millennials to pay for it, then that might've worked.

                I have no idea where it's all going. There are post-social-media plays now like newsletters. There's not a ton of money there, but some can break even. I've found myself going back to big "home pages" like The Drudge Report just to glance at what's going on because Twitter is now useless. On the liberal side, the Huffington Post is apparently profitable and they have one of those. The business is fundamentally about delivering information to people. Niche sites that cover specialist topics can maintain a loyal audience. Think of hobby publications like model train magazines. It's not a big audience but it pays for it. Or think about military / war news / firearms.

              Gonna quibble with you. Buzzfeed died because they were working on a fundamentally old media format. They were one of the first companies to recognize the advantages of digital and social media over traditional press in getting stories out fast and catering to interests from a wide variety of readers. However, they failed to adapt the underlying operational structure which led to them getting outpaced by newer media that could even better keep up with current events through collating social media posts and losing their contributors who could bypass Buzzfeed entirely and directly market their output through places like Youtube.

    Yesterday the ukies floated a bug ass Ukrainian flag suspended from balloons over Optyne and every Russian trench and foxhole in the area opened fire on it revealing their positions to the Ukrainians who basted them with accurate mortar and artillery barrages before launching an assault. The Russian units broke and fled and on their way back to their second line of defence their own artillery obliterated them. The Ukrainians then pushed past these lines also and the Russians are scrambling every able bodied man they have to try and make a new line.

                Ukraine has less than 800k in their armed forces. Russia had 1m before the war even started.
                Since the war started, Russia has activated their reserves and gone through an extensive "partial" mobilization. For Russia to not have at least a 2x1 manpower advantage at the front, it would mean their losses are nearing a million already. Which is pretty hard to believe, even for Russia.

                Russia only had 1 million if you count every men eligible for mobilization, which is a type of reservist in Russia. They've been going through that 1 million this whole time. It was never 1 million active duty troops or ready reserves.

                No, Russia had 1m active armed forces personnel (at least on paper).
                The reserves make up another 2m and are predominantly frontline personnel.
                Then you have the mobilization, which mostly collected frontline personnel and has absorbed somewhere between 500 and 600k already. And unlike the reserves who may exist mostly on paper, the conscription numbers are a conservative estimate.

                Eventually artillery shells production will catch up, new planes will arrive and new armor as well. Russia hit the cap on their firepower quite a while ago, and been only degrading on it ever since, Ukraine on the other hand only keeps increasing it and will continue to for at least a year more. Russians still have that firepower advantage and yet they get pushed back anyway, so when they lose it, I can fully imagine them getting smashed everywhere, donbass included.

            Effectively gobbling up petroleum assets in Ukraine could be done the way you say, but if you're under the impression from the FSB that everyone in Ukraine actually loves you and hates the Ebil West, and you're under the impression that your military isn't actually third world-tier and can't actually take Kiev in Three (3) Days, then you'll probably see the need to buy out oligarchs as irrelevant when, after all, you'll have a friendly Ukrainian government installed before Summer 2022 (lmao, even).

The main point of the conflict since 2014, or even earlier than that, has been that if you want to decouple from Moscow and get a western governmental system with liberties and freedoms, you will get war and chaos.

    >for months before the COUNTER-OFFENSIVE they kept saying they were going to drive Russia out and retake Crimea
    >now, months into the COUNTER-OFFENSIVE the reddit warriors are claiming total victory because they managed to retake an abandoned village just short of the 1st of 3 defensive Russian lines

      They are invading Crimea. Turn the news on. They took parts of the coast and went in and took oil platforms. They are in north Western Crimea.
      Sigh. Looks like the are taking out the tkgl. Well India is fucked. They cut that line it's 20% of Indian requirements gone.

    >Biden can give a straight answer to off the cuff questions about 75% of the time.
    He also has a habit of looking like he has no idea where he is or wondering off towards nothing. There needs to be a cap of 70 years old to run for any office.

      This
      Imagine losing a watch worth 100 dollars to a theif who spent hundreds if not thousands of hours and men trying to steal it from you, only for him to just casually drop it as he runs away so you can pick it up by walking a few meters.
      Meanwhile his own team ran into his own minefield and presighted artillery and even more died, kek

    The (Swedish) government will shortly commission the Swedish Armed Forces to investigate the conditions for sending Gripen planes to Ukraine, Ekot learns.

    Among other things, the government wants information on how a handover affects Sweden's defense capabilities and how quickly Sweden can get new Gripen planes as compensation.
