    I was surprised to find that vice.com has now been classified as "pornography." This site provides alternative news and documentaries. "The best original videos, documentaries, and underground news from around the world; including travel, skate, and music videos."

    While some of the documentaries that I have viewed cover politically charged topics (e.g., child soldiers in Africa, a look inside North Korea), or "alternative" (e.g., tattoo artists) I have never seen images that would even come close to pornography.

    I recommend that vice.com be reclassified in the "news" category.

    A few more points on Vice.com (which is the URL for VBS.tv). According to Wikipedia:

    VBS.tv is an online television network owned by the Vice media conglomerate. The network produces original, short-form, documentary-style video content. Subject matter includes humanitarian issues, music, insider travel guides, and news.

    VBS began as a deal between Viacom-owned MTV Networks and Logo Group. In March 2007, the network was formed; MTV funded the formation of the network, and Vice magazine would supply the content. MTV has rights to distribute VBS content across its worldwide network of channels.[3] According to Vice co-founder Suroosh Alvi, "traditional journalism always aspires to objectivity, and since day one with the magazine we never believed in that...Our ethos is subjectivity with real substantiation. I don't think you see that on CNN."

    The network's videos feature reporting on popular culture, travel, extreme sports, and music. The site has also produced special-interest and current affairs-based shows such as an interview with Hezbollah's self-proclaimed mayor of Beirut and a show that explored allegations of environmental abuse. It has also approached drug issues, producing a documentary about the criminal use of the drug scopolamine in Colombia.[3] Other coverage includes a series of short documentaries about Darfur, Hurricane Katrina, Liberia, and North Korea.
