James West

Senior Digital Editor

James West is Senior Digital Editor for Mother Jones. He runs the magazine’s fledgling (but mighty) video department, including a first-of-its-kind film residency program, from MoJo’s New York City bureau. He also writes a lot about China (where he spent a bunch of time), and Australia (where he is from), and specializes in solo “everything in a backpack” guerrilla videography: shooting, editing, post-producing. He is nominated for a 2017 Emmy for MoJo’s investigative feature on the private prison industry (for which he was arrested—long story.)
