The Obama administration had quite a few young liberal guys working in key positions. Now three of them have formed a new media company called “Crooked Media” which they intend to use against Trump.

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.”
Tommy Vietor, Jon Favreau and Jon Lovett, who served as spokespeople and speechwriters for Obama, say the site’s aim is to go around traditional media to reach millennial Democrats.
“I think the lesson for [Democrats] is that if you’re solely filtering your message through the media, you’ve already lost,” Vietor told Time magazine. “[Trump] has Breitbart and Twitter and he’ll just swamp you. We need to do a better job of connecting directly and activating people.”
The name itself is pulled from Trump’s own words — he frequently bashes news outlets, reporters, and the media in general.
The three say they will not hide their opposition to the Trump administration.

You may remember Tommy Vietor as the guy who responded to a question about the Benghazi attack by saying “Dude, that was like two years ago.”
Jon Favreau is the Obama staffer who posed for this now famous photo:
They sure seem on the level, don’t they?
