Multimedia StoryTelling

Vice reporter unprofessional?

with one comment


I’ve seen quite a few Vice documentaries- some good, some less interesting, all very informational. With this documentary however, I had to question the credibility of the reporter and how that relates to multimedia storytelling.

In this documentary, the reporter is examining the reasons behind the ban of psychedelic mushrooms in Amsterdam and the continued legalization of the equally potent psychedelic truffles.

At the beginning of the video, the reporter buys these truffles and takes them. He actually takes a lot more than the head shop staff told him to.

The fact that the reporter did this made it seem a little like he reported on this topic just to engage in his own personal psychedelic experience. This was a very interesting story, but I’m not sure if the reporter’s trip really added anything to it.

  1. I have to agree with you. Eating psychedelic mushrooms on the job isn’t kosher.
