Vice Interviews… Robert Fisk?

It looks like Vice, the hipster magazine that could, is getting more ambitious. Their new issue features an interview with Robert Fisk, The Independent‘s legendary Middle Eastern correspondent. The interview itself is nothing special; the questions veer towards the uncontroversial and Fisk sticks to his usual talking points among the usual war stories. You know, the “US bad, Britain bad, Israel worse” critique Fisk is known for. Still, it’s an impressive feature for Vice, who have been rapidly mainstreaming thanks to the success of their record label and internet television network.

Still though, it’s not exactly The Economist just yet… the magazine’s readers called it out when a photo caption accidentally identified the Sabra and Shatila massacre as taking place in Israel instead of Lebanon. Geopolitically inclined Vice readers, this is your chance to shine.
