    The VICE Effect

    .

    . VICE-hbo-logo . . Being a
    fan of docudramas and, a lot more especially, investigative journalism, I just recently got involved in the HBO series called VICE. My passion in the collection began with the current 2015 season, and episode after episode, I have actually located myself interested with the topics took on and also information offered.

    Nonetheless, the impact of the program has actually gone a little bit beyond merely making me familiar with problems as well as producing some critical thought. Just recently, and also this would be 3 episodes straight for me currently, I have actually seen the VICE tales come to life in the arising information of the day. After seeing Episode 31: Rescuer Seeds which narrated the scary business methods of Monsanto, the following day it was revealed that the FDA was requiring the eliminate of trans-fats by food manufacturers. This was in addition to General Mills and 5 some significant food firms revealing that they would be eliminating fabricated flavors as well as shades the foods they refine.

    This occurred once more after enjoying Season 3, Episode 11 University Coverup. After viewing that episode, the L.A. Times reported that UC Berkeley was being demanded not reacting properly to sexual assault grievances on its university.

    Just last evening I had a look at the Period 3, Episode 12 Global Jihad episode, a chronicle of the rising jihad movement within ISIS. After evaluating the information this early morning, I saw the account of 64 Egyptian soldiers killed in Isis strikes on safety and security checkpoints.

    Naturally, I’m suggesting to an effect of the VICE stories that they simply don’t have. There is no causal relationship between my seeing a VICE episode then the globe events occurring around me. The VICE result is just an entertaining psychological video game. Nonetheless, there is an identified phenomena called the Baader Meinhof result, which explains exactly how our discerning interest functions after being exposed to something. Essentially, you see something or find out about a topic, as well as after that start to observe it everywhere– an enjoyable mind game of its own.
