David Axelrod (Exclusively WSB)

The 24/7 news cycle, social media, and a culture where information is currency have completely changed the face of politics—in some cases for better and in others for worse. A veteran strategist who started out his career as a newspaperman for The Chicago Tribune, David Axelrod reflects on the changes that have taken root in the media and what they mean for the direction of our political discourse at home and abroad. Has our desire for soundbites drowned out thoughtful discussion? Does a culture that embraces talking heads over substance make us less apt to listen to opposing viewpoints? How can we better use new media to advance issues of immense importance to our future? Axelrod shares the answers to these questions as he reflects on a rapidly shifting media and political landscape.
