Slate V launched a new video blog, Trending News Channel, which features two to three short videos per day detailing “the more shrug-worthy news items trending each day.”

Trending News Channel is being run by Slate V executive producers Bill Smee and Andy Bowers, and the Chevy Volt is the launch sponsor and the blog’s exclusive sponsor for the month.

Slate V said it will not tie content on Trending News Channel to any one source, mining searches from Google, Twitter, Yahoo!, Bing, and other sources.
