Former Obama staffers launching anti-Trump site called ‘Crooked Media’
Three former staffers to President Obama are launching an anti-Donald Trump media site called “Crooked Media.”
“We’re not journalists, we’re not unbiased, we’re not always serious and we’re certainly not always right,” Vietor, Favreau, and Lovett explain in Crooked Media’s mission statement. “But we promise a no-bulls–t conversation about politics where you can laugh, cry, scream, ridicule us daily, share your ideas, and hopefully decide that you want to help fix this mess too.”
Vietor, Favreau and Lovett, along with former White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer, hosted a biweekly podcast called “Keepin’ It 1600,” on The Ringer website. It has since been retitled as “Pod Save America,” following Trump’s victory in November.
