Newsmax Media, a leading independent online news site and magazine, has announced that Judith Miller, an author and Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative reporter formerly with The New York Times, is now a contributing writer for Newsmax magazine.
Her first article for Newsmax, published in the January issue, is an exclusive story about the Middle Eastern drug trade. Her tale centers on the experiences of one man, international drug cop John Myers.
Miller also is writing original blog posts for Newsmax.com
Along with her new writing assignment for Newsmax, Miller is an adjunct fellow at the Manhattan Institute and a contributing editor of its magazine, City Journal. Since 2008, she also has been a commentator for Fox News, speaking on terrorism and other national security issues.
Before leaving The New York Times in November 2005, she spent 85 days in jail to defend a reporter's right to protect confidential sources. That year, she received the First Amendment Award from the Society of Professional Journalists for her protection of sources. She has been a strong advocate for the enactment of a federal shield law to protect the relationship between reporters and their sources and the public's right to know.
"Judith’s many years of editorial experience covering major foreign relations stories make her a powerhouse addition to Newsmax magazine’s contributing staff,” said Kenneth Chandler, editor-in-chief of Newsmax magazine. "We are excited about Judith’s first article in the new January 2011 issue and look forward to her unique and original reporting in Newsmax about issues that affect the security of the United States.”
Born in New York City, Miller grew up in Miami and Los Angeles, graduating from Hollywood High School. She attended Ohio State University, Barnard College, and the Institute of European Studies at the University of Brussels. She has a bachelor's degree from Barnard and a master's degree from Princeton University's Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs.
