The Interpreter is proud to announce that it has a new managing editor, James Miller.
James has extensive experience in providing both breaking news and in-depth reporting on developments in the Middle East. He has established a reputation for his fast and reliable verification of eyewitness reports and citizen journalism.
He is the Editor-in-Chief of the Public Eye Journalism Project, an open-sourced collaborative dedicated to investigating international events of legal, political and historical importance. The PEJ was founded by James and Boston College Professor Matt Sienkiewicz in the spring of 2013.
James is the former U.S. based editor and journalist for EAWorldview (formerly Enduring America), where he provided daily live coverage and analysis of news from the Middle East, with a focus on Syria, between the fall of 2010 and May 2013. He is the creator of Dissected News, where he covered the uprisings of Iran before joining EA Worldview. He has also written for the Huffington Post and Iran News Now. His article, “The Green Movement in Iran Is Alive, and Important,” was published in a book, Current Controversies: The Iranian Green Movement, and an article describing his methodology was recently featured in the Columbia Journalism Review, “Straight news from the Citizens of Syria: How reporters sort, organize—and verify—a flood of information from a chaotic civil war.
James is honored and humbled to join The Interpreter team and we’re excited to have him on board.
