VICE Media and Gartner Alums Launch Shop for “Uncensored Market Research”

VIC

The company, founded by Gunny Scarfo, the former Head of Strategy for VICE Media's digital agency, and Ben Zeidler, the former Global Head of CPG Research at L2/Gartner, draws upon its founders' vision to provide "uncensored research" – an approach they've taken to help some of the world's largest companies understand customers better. Known by colleagues for their swashbuckling approach to customer insights, they have ventured unchaperoned into a prison, surveyed rap lyrics to chart personal finance trends, and run quantitative studies on the secret sex lives of Americans. Despite the range of their work, their goal is always the same: find truths that customers self-censor rather than reveal to market researchers. True to Nonfiction form, the research process included locating and interviewing convicted bank robbers, talking with individuals struggling with shopping addiction, and hearing thousands of Americans share their most private money moments.

Vice Shows the Perils of the ‘Greater Fool’ Theory

VIC

Get the DealBook newsletter to make sense of major business and policy headlines — and the power-brokers who shape them. For years, Vice Media had a seemingly endless parade of investors. They were eager to buy a piece of a media company with an edgy attitude that purported to speak to millennials and the digitally savvy to reach that audience. Many of those investors likely believed that they could invest in Vice at ever-higher valuations because someone else, whether through an initial public offering or a sale of the company to a media giant, would pay an even loftier price. Vice could turn itself around under its new leadership team, led by the well-regarded media executive Nancy Dubuc. And the media world may still think Vice is worth paying up for. Or the company could see its reputation for cool dissipate — New York cited a 2017 survey of teenagers who found Vice to be less cool than Yahoo or J.C. Penney. And that may mean when it raises money in the future it will be at a lower valuation than what it had earned in the past, a so-called “down round.”.

Media are not an arm of the police, Vice lawyer tells Supreme Court hearing

VIC

OTTAWA — Journalists are not an investigative arm of the police, a lawyer representing Vice Media told the Supreme Court of Canada in arguing there should be clear protections for the media when enforcement agencies come knocking. Vice Media reporter Ben Makuch is challenging an Ontario Court of Appeal ruling that he must give the RCMP the background materials he used for stories on an accused terrorist. In 2015, the RCMP obtained a production order under the Criminal Code, directing Vice Media and Makuch to provide documents and data relating to communications with Shirdon, who may now be dead. Rather than give careful consideration to media interests, courts give short shrift to "the pernicious effects" of warrants and production orders on the media's ability to gather or report the news, Vice says in its written submission to the high court.
