Wednesday is a banner day for digital media startups, as the founders of both Politico and The Huffington Post unveiled projects that have been under wraps for months.
For Ariana Huffington, the founder of The Huffington Post, it's launch day for Thrive Global, her much-anticipated wellness company.
