I'm confused. Doesn't he already have most of the media?
Obama’s communications director Jan Psaki denied that the president is seeking to be involved in digital media following January 20. “While the president will remain actively engaged in inspiring young people and he is interested in the changing ways people consume information, he has no plans to get into the media business after he leaves office,” Psaki said in a statement given to Mic.

Mic’s report cites a source close to Obama who said that he met with Mark Zuckerberg during the APEC summit in Peru two weeks ago to discuss his plans to get involved in digital media. Sources told Mic that it is unknown what form it would be in and one source said that Obama has recently become less interested in starting his own company.

The president has been a sharp media critic during his time in the Oval Office. A lot of this criticism has been towards Fox News. He said in a recent interview that Fox News playing “in every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country” was partly responsible for Trump’s victory. Obama has also said previously that he wouldn’t vote for himself if he watched Fox News.
