Liberal political operative David Brock is gearing up for four years of Donald Trump, and he plans to remold his media networks into anti-Trump weaponry in preparation. Media Matters, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), and the social media platform Shareblue will all be refocusing in anticipation of the incoming administration, The Hill reports.

Specifically, Brock is looking for financial investment for Shareblue, which he believes could become the "Breitbart of the left" if it finds backing. Brock is also looking to the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch as a template for how CREW might operate, and he plans to steer Media Matters' focus away from Fox News to zero in on fake news, conspiracy theories, and hoaxes.
