Founding Editor of Business Insider UK
Business Insider is an American business and technology news website. Business Insider also offers BI Intelligence, a subscription-based research service that provides data and analysis on the mobile, payments, eCommerce, social, and digital media industries.
I am best-known for being editor-in-chief for News at Insider. I was also the founding editor-in-chief of Business Insider UK. And I was the founding editorial director of DL News, the crypto news website. I have previously been managing editor at Adweek, a columnist at CBSNews.com, and a Knight-Bagehot Fellow at Columbia Business School. I have written for The Independent, Fortune, Salon, Slate, MTV, Yahoo, The Nation, and AOL. The U.S. Supreme Court cited my work on the death penalty in the concurrence to Baze v. Rees, on the issue of whether lethal injection is cruel or unusual. My investigative journalism changed the law in the First Circuit Court of Appeals (U.S. v. Kravetz), the Third Circuit Court of Appeals (North Jersey Media v. Ashcroft), New Jersey (In Re El-Atriss), and New York (Mosallem v. Berenson). My reporting teams have changed the law in Saudi Arabia to allow women there to travel without the permission of men. I won the Neal award for business journalism in 2005 for a series investigating bribes and kickbacks in the advertising business. http://www.businessinsider.com/author/jim-edwards
