Winans is a former Wall Street Journal writer who penned the influential "Heard on the Street" column in the early 1980s. Able to move markets with his words, he leaked inside information from his reporting to a stock broker, who would make beneficial trades on his behalf. The columnist was convicted in 1985 and remains a syllabus staple in journalism ethics classes across the country.
