Edits from Business Insider PR person[edit]

Business Insider is a leading business site with deep financial, media, tech and other industry verticals. The flagship vertical, Silicon Alley Insider (SAI), launched on July 19, 2007, led by DoubleClick founder Kevin Ryan and former top-ranked Wall Street analyst Henry Blodget. One year after launch, additional verticals joined Silicon Alley Insider, including Clusterstock, Money Game, The Wire, and more. Its newsroom currently employs a staff of 50, and the site reported a profit for the first time ever in the 4th quarter of 2010. In June 2012 it had monthly unique visitor count to the website of 5.4 million. Business Insider hosts noted industry conferences including Ignition, which explores the successful and emerging business models of digital media; Ignition West; Social Media ROI, which covers how brands use social media; and Mobile Advertising. In February 2012, Business Insider launched BI Intelligence, a subscription research service that provides in-depth insight, data, and analysis of the mobile industry. The site each year publishes editorial franchises such as the “Digital 100: The World's Most Valuable Private Tech Companies.”

I've already reverted this wording twice as too promotional and you removed references when you added it. Words like "leading", "flagship", "noted", "successful", etc. are promotional. Jargon such as "verticals" is not helpful to Wikipedia readers. I will let another editor address your request. 72Dino (talk) 20:49, 4 January 2013 (UTC)

Apologies for posting 2x - was an error. Thanks for your suggestions. I've edited again to include them all:

Business Insider is a business site with deep financial, media, tech and other industry verticals. The site first launched as Silicon Alley Insider (SAI) on July 19, 2007, led by former top-ranked Wall Street analyst Henry Blodget and Doubleclick founder and former C.E.O. Kevin P. Ryan. One year after launch, additional sections joined SAI, including Clusterstock, Money Game, The Wire, and more. The site relaunched under the Business Insider name in February, 2009. Its newsroom currently employs a staff of 50, and the site reported a profit for the first time ever in the 4th quarter of 2010.[Edits from 1] In November 2012 it had monthly unique visitor count to the website of 8.9 million, according to comScore. Business Insider hosts industry conferences including Ignition, which explores the emerging business models of digital media; Ignition West; Social Media ROI, which covers how brands use social media; and Mobile Advertising.

I'm wondering how I can get an editor to consider my suggestions from two weeks ago. ThanksMrMarioNateRuizJr (talk) 21:22, 25 January 2013 (UTC)MrMarioNateRuizJr


Edit by PR for Business Insider[edit]

The site editors vary greatly in background. Henry Blodget is the CEO and Editor-In-Chief, a Yale graduate who previously worked on Wall Street before being barred from the securities industry following an SEC censure.[Edit by 1] Deputy editor Joe Weisenthal has worked as an analyst and writer for a series of dotcoms.[Edit by 2] Deputy editor Nicholas Carlson previously worked at Internet.com and Gawker Media's Silicon Valley gossip blog, Valleywag.com. Senior editor Jim Edwards was previously managing editor at Adweek.

(note: Blodget was not convicted of fraud but was censured by the SEC. Please note his wiki page. I've also added the name of Jim Edwards.)

I immediately made the change to remove any mention of a conviction as this is a WP:BLP issue. I used the wording "censured" and "barred" as that was in the SEC press release. By the way, you are making the right move by making these suggested edits on the talk page. Be patient as I'm not sure how frequently this article is seen by other editors. 72Dino (talk) 21:28, 4 January 2013 (UTC)


Bothersome[edit]

It's quite bothersome that the issue of religion in relation to recent discussions about a possible future Fed chairman is censored by BusinessInsider. What is BusinessInsider's policy on religion? BusinessInsider regularly seems to make a laugh out of the various businesses which have noticeable connections to Christianity expressed in some way through their facilities, practices or products yet when comments on the topic of Judaism is mentioned in relation to the most likely appointee to the position of Federal Reserve Director, BusinessInsider blocks them. It sure seems like there is religious descrimination going on at BusinessInsider or at least a little hypocrisy. 101.51.130.80 (talk) 12:56, 29 June 2013 (UTC)

BI PR person maintaining article[edit]

Why do you idiots just let someone who works for BI blatantly edit and maintain this article like that? It makes the article completely uncritical and shit. This is Wikipedia not the site's own About page. It should be objective. Business Insider is a site that steals content from other sites and arranges it in such a way to maximize the number of ads/clicks per page. This is part of why Wikipedia is such a joke. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.91.233.45 (talkcontribs) 15:23, 14 November 2013‎
