I confess I had never heard of VBS.tv before they wrote us. It’s an internet TV station that grew out of Vice magazine. Poking around their site, I must say it looks pretty damn cool. Raw, but cool. I’ve been wondering when a viable internet TV production outfit will pop up. Maybe this is it. (Here’s the mission statement, if you’re interested.)

The reason they wrote us is to flag an investigative series they did called Toxic: West Virginia. To wit:

Part 1: Mountaintop Removal
Part 2: Reclamation
Part 3: Miners
Part 4: Coal Companies
Part 5: Water

Here’s the blog they kept alongside the show.

Grist thanks its sponsors. Become one.

It’s all pretty low-budget, but charmingly so, and surprisingly substantive. Very webby. Check it out.
