LA-based independent producer and investigative journo Eric Longabardi and Peabody Award-winning TV vet Roger Scott launched an online investigative reporting site Tuesday — because a pig flight school would have been too lucrative.
ERSNews.com has a terrible name, and a not-so-catchy motto: “It’s news: exclusive and original.” But we welcome any online journalistic innovation that doesn’t involve Britney Spears, so we wish them well.
Here’s to the brave, new world.
[Update: Longabardi tells us: "ERS stands for Enterprise Reporting System and the initials of the three founders. I mean come on TMZ, FNC, CNN, NBC is any better?" FBLA's response: Yes.
"And I have not given up on old media ... that is false. I work with Brian Ross and ABC most directly in recent years on the national scene and do all my work until last TUESDAY via OLD MEDIA.
We apologize, and admit we stand corrected. Except about the name.
