Slate pans 'Planet Green'
Let's admit it. It's hip to be green these days. Back in the 1980s, they would have said it was "awesome" to be green. Kids probably don't even say "hip" anymore.
Slate, the really hip Internet mag, doesn't like Planet Green, the new 24-hour eco network from the (call me) folks at Discovery Network.
The Slate folks are pretty hard on PG. What's wrong with a round-the-clock enviro channel? Heck, they tapped super drummer Tommy Lee for a show. What more could you ask for? (Try not to think about Rockstar: Supernova, please).
Haven't watched it myself. But I'll take Slate's opinion with a grain of salt. They're owned by The Washington Post.
