Emoji Domains & India's War On Cash: VICE News Tonight Full Episode (HBO)

Emoji Domains & India's War On Cash: VICE News Tonight Full Episode (HBO)

This is a November 30, 2017, FULL EPISODE of VICE News Tonight on HBO.

During the dot-com era of the ’90s, a simple domain name could sell for millions. Since then, search engines have made prime URLs less important, and now a new kind of domain name is up for grabs. VICE News talks to the man who believes emoji domains could be his second shot at an Internet gold rush.

In June, members of the Presidential Advisory Council on HIV/AIDS (PACHA) resigned to protest the Trump administration’s inattention. In advance of World Aids Day, VICE News interviews one council member who resigned and one who remained.

In November 2016, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced that he was immediately banning the use of the two most common banknotes — which meant taking 86 percent of the country’s currency out of circulation overnight. One year into the policy, VICE News went to India to see if Modi’s economic gamble was worth the risk.

    does the last host have some kind of disability?
     the disability of not having the decency to look and talk like an actual interviewer.

  6. Sudipta Adhikary on May 12, 2021 at 9:22 am

    Those figures are not about tax collection. They are about income tax collection.
    Indians play taxes through any kind of purchases in the form of GST. There are also many other forms of taxes. Your figures are relevant in the context of income taxes.

    Aadhar is just like SSN social security number or unique number for citizen which is even used in USA and canada.

    Vice your reporter in India is a "dumpster" he just show you a picture that not totally correct, he not mention because of demonitisation more than 23 people lost there life standing in the queue #f***

  13. Anirudh on May 12, 2021 at 9:29 am

    "India’s war on cash" really not up to the mark VICE. Could do much better. Need some better journalists from India. Dont want another CNN out of VICE.

  14. Helenshipsships on May 12, 2021 at 9:30 am

    Isn’t adhar = identity?

  15. Sir Derty on May 12, 2021 at 9:32 am

    Emoji guy is clueless, just a gambler knowing nothing how it all works. Just buying up anything he thinks is trendy, i wonder how much he has just sitting wasted in the url’s he already bought. Probably more than a mil

  16. Angelia Wilds on May 12, 2021 at 9:35 am

    what do u expect trump to do about aids? cure it? lol

  17. Anuj Taxali on May 12, 2021 at 9:37 am

    Does the last reporter realize closing her eyes constantly like that and constantly shaking her head is rude body language? Vice please tell her.

  18. Nicolis Clark on May 12, 2021 at 9:38 am

    How about you do a special on the DNC and how when the dems spent millions trying to find evidence of russian collusion with trump they found nothing on trump and heaps of evidence of the clintons having done many illegal things. Oh but that wouldnt fit your leftist globalist agenda though.

  19. Lim Charles on May 12, 2021 at 9:38 am

    india supper power by 2020!! jaihind!!

  21. Tobias Lagerblad on May 12, 2021 at 9:41 am

    This emoji guy is horrible. Just the kind of development I dont want to see.

  22. amrit bansal on May 12, 2021 at 9:43 am

    India’s "war on cash" though desirable is superficial & ineffective…..example – political parties continue to blatantly accept cash donations while forcing the common man to go cashless!

  23. Poker Snob on May 12, 2021 at 9:43 am

    Why does she close her eyes when asking a question…..😞🤩😞🤩

  24. / on May 12, 2021 at 9:43 am

  26. chloweful on May 12, 2021 at 9:46 am

    20:49 Eww is the drugged up lazy, lethargic shit reporter again.
    Can’t stand her or her fake glasses.
    She could at least PRETEND she’s not high.
    What an embarrassment.

  27. SuicidelG on May 12, 2021 at 9:47 am


  28. K&M Metalworks on May 12, 2021 at 9:47 am

  31. Griff on May 12, 2021 at 9:50 am

    We need to cut government spending. But no one wants it cut anywhere.

  32. Ben Meister on May 12, 2021 at 9:54 am

    VICE IS Biased

  36. MtotheM on May 12, 2021 at 9:58 am

    Sure, it’s a flair on the adress, but what’s the point in having a URL nobody can type?

  37. jakesweet1000 on May 12, 2021 at 9:58 am

  38. Muhammad Mirsab on May 12, 2021 at 9:58 am

    if black money is money that is exchanged without the interference of coercion, i’m all for it. hawali fooo life

  46. Playlist Overload on May 12, 2021 at 10:06 am

    That was a lousy fucking covering of the issue in India. As usual clueless foreigners channeling the noise.

  47. Plan46beats on May 12, 2021 at 10:07 am

    Wow India just cemented BITCOIN’s future lol … forever will there be black money

  48. JewsLikeFunk on May 12, 2021 at 10:08 am

    The irony at 17:04. The finance ministers son was recently was caught in a corruption scam!

  49. solomonarbc on May 12, 2021 at 10:14 am

    India’s Hawala is an early form of banking more competitive than the current one. That’s at least 500 years of banking advancements fails in the case of these micro-transactions.

  50. OHM-968692 on May 12, 2021 at 10:16 am

    I think the demonetization was like a PR stunt. Even people in the government are corrupt and deal with black money and fake notes are back as always. Nothing much changed except people waiting in long lines and GDP growth slowing down.
