We were hoping for a good old-fashioned wrestling match. A fight to the finish on the order of Xeni Jardi and Violet Blue. Alas, the rumble between L.A. Observed‘s Kevin Roderick and ERSNews.com‘s Eric Longabardi has failed to deliver delicious goods.
To wit, Longabardi’s weak response to Roderick’s take on an ERS piece about him:
I did read Kevin Roderick’s personal attack on me related to our investigative story about him regarding two Pulitzer Prizes he has falsely claimed to have “shared” in and lied about.
All I will say is, I implore your readers and anyone else to read the story at ERSNews.com. As we said previously in response to your questions about the story, it speaks for itself.
Me and my editor agree (yes I have an editor) the reporting and story speaks for itself and we don’t respond to personal attacks from story subjects based on investigative reports we publish on ERSNews.com, The Enterprise Report.
If any of your readers are interested in seeing some of the kind of reporting I do as an independent investigative producer/reporter elsewhere in addition to ERSNews.com — I would suggest they take a look at a story I just broke with my colleagues at ABC News today.

Those in Los Angeles can watch the story at 6:30PM on World News Tonight with Charles Gibson (Channel-7 KABC in LA)
ERSNews.com will leave the personal attacks to Kevin Roderick and his personal opinion blog.
