This article is part of the Center for Media & Democracy's spotlight on front groups and corporate spin.

CREW Exposed is a front group operated by Berman & Co. Berman & Co. operates a network of dozens of front groups, attack-dog web sites, and alleged think tanks that work to counteract minimum wage campaigns, keep wages low for restaurant workers, and block legislation on food safety, secondhand cigarette smoke, drunk driving, and more.

CREW Exposed describes itself "a project of the Center for Consumer Freedom (CCF), a non-profit organization devoted to promoting personal responsibility and protecting consumer choices" according to CREW Exposed's website.[1] In reality, CCF is another Berman front group that runs media campaigns opposing the efforts of scientists, doctors, health advocates, animal advocates, environmentalists and other groups for restaurant, alcohol, tobacco and other industries.

According to Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, CREW Exposed "attacks Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, which operates BermanExposed and is a persistent critic of Rick Berman’s corporate fronts."[2]
