As the year 2010 comes to an end we wanted to let TER readers take the chance to re-read our best stories from this past year. Stories that The Enterprise Report reported first as exclusive original news.
The stories range from our series of exclusive reports on accused Russian arms deal Viktor Bout and his organization of pilot associates using U.S. issued pilot's licenses for decades unchecked, to a long list of family members of Osama Bin Laden on the U.S. no-fly list. We tackled and were first to reveal the strange case of a former NFL quarterback accusations of police brutality that didn't seem to quite pan out. We uncovered crucial missteps by police in trying to keep track of and identify a registered sex offender who would later confess to murdering two young girls near San Diego, CA. We would expose a secret that the USTA, the governing body of tennis in the USA was doing little to stop sexual predators from preying on the sport's youngest players. We exposed Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck (and LA's Mayor) for taking free tickets to pricey events and much more.
TER reports on and cover the news just like any other new organization and media outlet. What we do best and strive to do better than anyone is break original investigative stories. That is what serious quality accurate investigative reporting is all about.
Below is a listing and the direct links to some of our best exclusive investigative reports from this past year. There are a few more that are not included, so please click around our site via our beat sections and see all of our stories. After reading some our top stories of 2010, we think you'll see what we're talking about when it comes original investigative reporting.
Happy New Year from TER.
