In their own words:

VBS is an online broadcast network that streams free original content 24 hours a day. We carry a mix of domestic and international news, pop and underground culture coverage, and the best music in the world. People have used words like eclectic, smart, funny, shocking, and revolutionary to describe VBS, but we prefer to simply think of ourselves as the future of all media. Join us as we fulfill every utopian vision the internet has failed to live up to so far.

In my words:

Cool, random stuff that sucks me in for hours!  I originally discovered this site reading an article about the shooting tragedy in Norway.  The story referenced a documentary about the Norwegian prison system and the fact that they do not currently have a “life sentence” option.  Meaning all criminals, including murderers, rapists, thugs and the like are all placed back into society at some point.  Needless to say, the prison system is hyper-focused on rehabilitation versus punishment.

While the stories on vbs.tv are interesting, they are not as developed as something you will see on main stream news media.  On the other hand, main stream media will generally not be covering most of these topics, so worth a look.

Here is the link to the original piece that got me hooked.

About Blurb My Enthusiasm
40-something-yrs-old and I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. My resume reads like a food court menu: educator, dog walker, product manager, executive director, managing editor - and that's just the notable titles. I entertain all offers and consider myself up for the job until someone tells me I'm not. I've never been fired. What I lack in direction, I make up for in enthusiasm.
