The Enterprise Report Takes on Joel Grover

enterprise.png
Joel Grover from KNBC-TV won another IRE (Investigative Reporters and Editors) award this weekend. Eric Longabardi from TheEnterpriseReport posted some investigative nuggets of this own.

Longabardi has a couple of videos of Grover, one where he’s threatening his subject with calling the cops unless he talks to him. Another where the briber admits CBS/Grover gave him the money to make a pay off.

Journos Mugshots: Bitter/Sweet

6a011168586588970c01156f6d40c9970b.jpg

Eric Longabardi of The Enterprise Report has a series of journo mugshots. Perfect to be a cherry on top of that video in El Paso of a cop freaking out and arresting a reporter. Our favorite of the bunch is, of course Shepherd Smith.

Then this morning, just to give a nice peg to this post – Smith drops the f-bomb on TV. “We are America! We do not fucking torture!” Say it loud and say it proud, cellie!

We Have Forgotten Just About Everything Useful About the Vietnam War…Acts of Piracy for Example

(Alvin Glatkowski – circa 1960′s)

Eric Longabardi
at The Enterprise Report, has a good one. Attorney General Eric Holder recently stated that the there hasn’t been an act of piracy against an American ship ‘in 100 years’.

Not so.

From Amazon:

“The Eagle Mutiny” is the very real life story of two merchant seaman, Clyde McKay, and Alvin Glatkowski. These two individuals are merchant seaman on the merchant ship, “S.S. Columbia Eagle” which sets sail for Vietnam with a hull full of napalm bombs under contract for the U.S. Air Force.

Glatkowski and McKay are both disenchanted with the Vietnam war effort and suddenly see themselves as self-ordained revolutionaries. They decide to mutiny, and subsequently hijack the ship making it’s captain change course to Cambodia. Their dreams of being paraded through Hanoi as “the peoples heroes” are soon deluged with hard core reality.

Written by Richard Linnett and Roberto Loiederman (who lives in the Valley we’re told). TEM came out in the summer of 2001. So…ahem…the hijacking story…just well…uh, yeah.

Ooh. Wonky fun. Good cocktail conversation. Nice catch, Eric!

UPDATE: It has been brought to our attention that piracy has to technically be a ‘nonstate actor’ so a merchant seaman would be a mutiny. Which makes Holder correct and us lacking a decent maritime education. The land-lubbers we be….

UPDATE FROM THE UPDATE: Longabardi sent us this:

A person who specifically plans (as the two columbia eagle guys did) .. to hijack a ship and goes on board for that purpose could be charged with piracy .. although these two were ‘crewmembers’ per se .. they planned the hijacking in advance and smuggled guns on board to do it.

We’re getting seasick…

Eric Longabardi‘s The Enterprise Report has launched.

Yes, we know it was yesterday. We don’t work weekends dude.

Update: Kevin Roderick Vs. Eric Longabardi, Part III

3490_hh1.jpg

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:

UPDATE: Kevin Roderick Vs. Eric Longabardi

34ff90_1.jpg

Going into far more detail on L.A. Observed than he did with us here at Fishbowl LA, Kevin Roderick blasts Eric Longabardi‘s latest ERSNews.com post, saying “On these kind of phony hits motivated by link envy, the backstory is the most interesting part.”

We love court side seats to mud-slinging matches. So grab your rain slicker and protective goggles, and come join us!

We’re not sure what bloggers Kevin Roderick and Eric Longabardi have against each other, but we know they won’t be sharing a toothbrush any time soon.

Longabardi, over at ERSNews.com, reports that K-Rod is grossly exaggerating his claims to two staff-awarded L.A. Times Pulitzers.

For his part, L.A. Observed‘s Roderick periodically dismisses the longtime journo as a guy with a grudge.

Seeing how Mike Phelps is momentarily not on television right now we thought we’d check in with these two L.A. blogger types and find out, you know, what gives.

First we asked Roderick to comment on ERS’s piece:

Thanks for asking. Hadn’t seen that. Wow, Eric Longabardi really holds a grudge. He’s been mad for a year that I don’t link to his blog — I’ve told him privately, in response to numerous beseeching (and insulting) emails, that I don’t trust his reporting. This is another example of why.

FBLA EXCLUSIVE: The Truth About Eric Longabardi’s Necktie

Eric LAPC Awards.jpgOur post about the L.A. Press Club awards inspired a few lamentations among winners who were not listed, but no lamentations were as interesting as those of ERSNews.com’s Eric Longabardi, who won a shared 1st place prize along with Suzanne Murch, Melanie Switzer and Raheem Dawson for an E! Entertainment documentary about the paparazzi.

His site also won the top prize for Best Website, Online Only.

The judges said of ERSNews.com: The world needs more investigative reporters, and it’s refreshing to find those who have the patience, focus and fortitude to do the hard work. Too bad they have such a lousy name. (OK, maybe we added that last bit.)

To make amends, we asked Eric to answer a few of our patented stupid questions. In the following Q&A, you’ll learn that not only is Eric a consummate journalist; he’s a consummate journalist whose mother still dresses him.
