And it’s why Axios HQ teaches it to Fortune 500 companies, organizations, and writers who want to learn how to communicate quickly and effectively. Hear VandeHei, Allen, and Schwartz as they talk to Huffington about how they formulated their philosophy; why they believe it can help restore public trust in the news; how the intersection of journalism, politics, and communication can help support democracy; and much more.
