Ernie of Sesame Street, USA fame has left the home he shares with Bert alleging he is distraught over the inability to access the Nowpublic site for the last several hours. Ernie decided to assuage his pain over his lack of access to his favorite news source of information. Ernie was so used to his crowd powered media, he found more traditional sources of media such as tv or radio news to be unsatisfying. Ernie grew tired of obsessively hitting the enter key on his computer to learn if Nowpublic was available yet and decided to go on a vacation. "I grew tired of watching Bert count his paperclip collection and Big Bird was not available for moral support," Ernie is alleged to have said. This writer shared Ernie's pain over the inaccessibility of Nowpublic for several hours, and has reportedly been driven to begin writing stories about Muppets, as her news brain has gone soft without her beloved source of news, Nowpublic.
