Kevin Roderick Vs. Eric Longabardi: Two People You Don’t Want to See in a Bikini Mud Wrestling Match

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.

Investigative Reporting Site Launches

longabardi.jpgLA-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.

Why an online news source? Here’s one guess: Investigative reporter Longabardi seems to have long ago given up on Old Media.

Here’s to the brave, new world.
