Paradise Papers: The True Story Behind The Secret Nine-Month Investigation (HBO)

This segment originally aired on November 6, 2017, on VICE News Tonight on HBO.

After nine months of secret collaboration, a global team of over 380 investigative journalists released the findings of one of the largest troves of leaked documents in history last week: the Paradise Papers.

The investigation, shepherded by the same team that released the Panama Papers, offers unprecedented insight into the clients and business activities related to a Bermuda-based offshore services law firm called Appleby.

VICE News Tonight on HBO went behind the scenes from Day One of the Paradise Papers, with exclusive access to the investigative reporters working in secret across continents to expose an unseen world of offshore accounts, hidden money, and financial maneuvering at the highest levels of politics, business, and finance.

  2. An excellent news project that went absolutely nowhere in the larger scheme of things. It was never followed up by public information to the masses. A good indicator of where it went off the spotlight was demonstrated by the woman, on-air news caster on CTV, when she said 'the "document" gives us a glimpse into where the world's financial elites "stash their cash".' She stupidly assumed these "elites" were stashing "their cash", when it is clear they are stashing our cash.

  3. Id much rather deal with this than the pedophiles. But as far as this show goes, I think its focused too much on Trump and not enough on the larger picture. Im not for nor against Trump anymore than I am with any of the other past presidents. But this piece is just focused on Trump when there are so many others involved. Its obviously biased. And when something is biased, it only tells part of the story. I believe presidents are chosen YEARS before elections. I do not believe we have ANY choice as to who becomes president. We get this illusion of choice, but look at 2000, Nuff said. And why does it seem that no matter who is presidents, the same shit happens. As in the great words of Robin WIlliams. "Politicians should wear sponsor jackets like Nascar drivers, then we know who owns them." Quit subscribing to the party of the rich and join the party of the people.

  4. Keep getting mad at poor people taking handouts and falling for racist gaslighting while these people make out like bandits with what could have been and should be a much bigger sum of your state's tax revenue.

  6. You really need to ask yourself, what would you do if you had unbelievable resources and cash? Would you also have connections that allow you to avoid taxation in offshore vehicles or would you be righteous and pay every penny owed to do your part in the health of a country? Human behavior tells me that most people would do the same tax-evading schemes as the people they loathe who are currently enjoying those benefits. Money and power is the ultimate corruptor. Most people would fail at being at being righteous. It is true what the Bible and Jesus say: it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Exposing corruption is needed, but will it change anything? The answer is no.

  7. This information should not be biased toward what the New York Times calls “right-wing” focused only on Trump and associates. The Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative would undoubtedly be even more tantalizing to report on deep corruption implicating many nation states and the elite business characters. It’s also amazing how this work epically failed to do any real change.

  8. Why hide money when they could just lower taxes? Most that shit is useless anyways, especially when government agencies spend leftover budgets on useless unneeded stuff so they can get the same or bigger budget.

  9. Thanks you but this information is not new ….. Powerful Man Make Business Every Were And hide they Money in other Countries or island …. They ambition don’t have limits…. For Them …. Is 5% to a 15 % in the Globe 🌎 Development…. Money 💰 is the key For Everything…. Gracias

  10. Being that the impunity of Affluenza Hubris is a given, who is watching the journalist mercenaries? (that cloak themselves in the virtuous cop-out; "I'm just reporting the facts") …as Shakespeare once said of lawyers…

  11. How does ITAR/TASS fit in self-proclaimed/professed "Independent Journalism"/"Press freedom"?? (i.e. who is "among the righteous" for vetting? who does the anointing of the true bearers of virtue?).
