A Roundtable with President Barack Obama: The Cost of Education

The biggest financial issue currently facing young Americans is not the decline of manufacturing jobs or the housing collapse, but mounting student debt. To tackle this issue, VICE hosted a roundtable discussion, moderated by VICE founder Shane Smith, with President Barack Obama and five students who discussed the challenges surrounding student debt and the pursuit of higher education in the US.

Launching Balloons into North Korea: Propaganda Over Pyongyang (Trailer)

North and South Korea are, both legally and philosophically, in a state of war. While the guns may be silent, the conflict between the two countries has now become one of propaganda. With the assistance of an American human rights group, North Korean defectors now in South Korea have been launching hydrogen-filled balloons across the 38th parallel — carrying both money and propaganda. In late 2014, a balloon launch sparked a brief exchange of gunfire between North and South Korean soldiers, and even more recently, Pyongyang has promised that hellfire will rain on South Korea if any copies of the controversial Hollywood comedy The Interview make it across the border. VICE News traveled to Seoul to meet frontline soldiers in this information war — and to attend a clandestine launch of propaganda balloons into the Hermit Kingdom.

From Prison to Politics: Mexico’s Hot Land (Dispatch 4)

The former leader of a group of vigilantes in Mexico has just been released from prison, and is now eyeing a career in politics. Hipólito Mora was imprisoned on murder charges following a December 2014 shootout in Michoacán between his and another vigilante group led by Luis Antonio Torres, a.k.a. “El Americano.” The clash resulted in 11 deaths — including Mora’s son. VICE News met with Mora in Michoacán to find out what his political goals are following his release from prison, and whether the release of “El Americano” means another shootout can be expected.
