"CEO Shane Smith's goal of "total media domination" took a major step forward on Thursday with the announcement that Vice had raised $500 million in funding evenly split from A&E Networks and technology investment firm Technology Crossover Ventures (TCV). ... A&E and TCV each took 10% stakes in Vice, valuing the Brooklyn-based company at $2.5 billion. ... The move paves the way for Vice to appear on television screens across the U.S. A&E, a joint venture between Disney and Hearst Ventures, operates 10 cable channels including some with broad distribution. A move into television beyond its HBO show is seen as a natural move for Vice. ... Vice has enjoyed a meteoric rise in value in the past year. The company had taken no known major investments until August 2013, when 21st Century Fox took a 5% stake that valued the company at $1.4 billion." #funding #media_companies #money #news #valuations #web_2.0 #pub

ugh didn't save?

Too close to South Park with this seasons PC Bro stuff since this is academia/college campus, lulz. So lame.

Wonder what trend of comedians this commentor is talking about, if his comment is true at all - " So this is what comedians who refuse to do shows on college campuses anymore are talking about. Sounds like a bunch of spoiled white PC brats whose mommies and daddies are paying for college while their dopey millennium offspring wouldn't recognize real racism if it hit them in the face. I'm guessing that because of these brats' white guilt over growing up excluding blacks from their own personal lives due to their own learned racism, they try to compensate by calling for the professor fired..." #news #PC_Bro #BS #pub

Is this a timeline [of biggest tweets or of their own personal opinion prominent ones]? #twitter #moments #aggregation #timelines #news #gossip #LGBT #pub
