JedMorey.com is a Long Island based website that features edgy, thoughtful political pieces from high-profile contributors. The curator of the site is Jed Morey, President of Morey Publishing, LLC, a socially responsible media company. Morey serves as publisher of the Long Island Press, LI’s Cultural Arts and Investigative News Journal. Other titles in Morey Publishing’s Private Label portfolio include Milieu Magazine, Long Island Organic, the Power List, and the Bethpage “Best of L.I.” publications.
If the Long Island Press is the master network, JedMorey.com is the political channel. The site covers a broad spectrum of issues ranging from Indian rights and the state of journalism to U.S. politics and environmentalism. JedMorey.com is not a repository for negative, anonymous comments and it has no hidden agenda; rather it’s an unlimited op-ed page that strives to become the epicenter of quality New York political commentary.
The contributors have roots on Long Island because, quite frankly, Long Islanders view the world a little differently than people from other less beautiful, intriguing, and scenic places in America. In other words, we’re smarter than everyone else… we just don’t necessarily sound like it when we “tawk.”
(Oh, and Brooklyn and Queens are part of Long Island no matter what anyone from either borough tries to tell you. It’s fact. And if any of them deny it, tell them to look at a map and get over it.)
We hope you enjoy your stay on our little site.
About Jed Morey
Jed Morey is the publisher of the Long Island Press, an monthly news journal with a circulation of 100,000, and www.longislandpress.com, which welcomes more than 500,000 unique visitors every month.
In addition to publishing the Press and hosting this site, Morey serves on the board of the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center in Nassau County and is an advocate for Indian rights. He has been involved with Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Long Island and is a past president of its board of directors. He has also been a “Big” in the program since 1993.
When not arguing with public officials or beating his head against the wall trying to run a newspaper in the digital information age, Morey authors a column for the Long Island Press titled “Off The Reservation” which was voted 2010 Best Column in New York State by the New York State Press Association and third overall nationally by the Association of Alternative Weeklies. Tragically, he roots for the Mets, Jets and NY Islanders.
Morey received a bachelor of something or other from Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs and an Executive M.B.A. from Hofstra University. Both institutions continue to improve dramatically year after year, giving younger people the impression that Morey is smarter than he really is.
Jed Morey lives in Glen Cove with his wife, Eden White, and their two daughters.
