By the age of 25, Chris Hughes had helped to create two of history’s most successful startups, Facebook and the social media machine that made Barack Obama president. At 28, Hughes bought The New Republic, the stately, serious, century-old magazine that he aims to transition successfully into the digital age. Hughes believes in the future of considered, meticulous, in-depth journalism and its crucial role in a free society. With his latest venture, he will learn first-hand if his belief is warranted.
