«Media is broken – and too often a scam». These words do not come from president Donald Trump, but from the manifesto of the American media startup Axios. The news and information platform launched in 2017 with the mission of helping people quickly and easily understand the most consequential topics in the world: from business to politics, to tech, media and more. Over the past two years, Axios has swiftly risen from small startup to powerhouse media company, delivering scoops, newsletters, podcasts, events, graphics and an HBO series Axios Editor in Chief, Nicholas Johnston, talks about the success – and how to do proper journalism in an age of uncertainty in journalism.
