VICE HBO Assassination Nation Political Assassinations in the Philippines S1E1A

Includes one post-viewing constructed response research question. Season 1 Episode1A Aired April 5th 2013 Assassination Nation - Political assassinations in the Philippines News story running time 12 minutes YouTube Video Link provided as a courtesy. https://youtu.be/cOndtUcRXdU Viewer discretion advised A fearless, raw approach to storytelling is the trademark of "VICE," a groundbreaking news-magazine series that tackles global issues often overlooked by traditional media. From anti-government rebellions, to hotbeds of terrorist activity, to conflict and corruption, "VICE" uses an engrossing documentary style to bring unique perspective to events shaping the future. The series takes its name from a youth media company operating in more than 34 countries. Its founder, Shane Smith, is the host and chief on-air correspondent of "VICE," joined by a network of reporters including VICE co-founder Suroosh Alvi, documentary filmmaker and author Ben Anderson, Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker and journalist Fazeelat Aslam, and Iranian photojournalist and filmmaker Gelareh Kiazand. Assassination Nation - Correspondent: Ryan Duffy Season 1 Episode 1-A The Philippines are the most dangerous place in the world to run for office, as politicians are routinely killed by their rivals. In 2009, a convoy of 57 of Governor Esmael Mangudadatu's supporters, friends and family were ambushed and killed as they drove to file his papers to run for office. Correspondent Ryan Duffy rides with the governor-and his heavily armed convoy-as he attempts to file his papers to run again. Duffy explores the gun crazy attitudes prevalent in the Philippines, where some areas boast a 70 percent gun ownership rate, and visits with underground gun makers and a terrorist training camp, which consists almost entirely of children.
