When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS, Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today.

"Whats Good For The Goose.........

What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

If you have been watching Beck of late, you have seen him attack hard at his number one nemesis (George Soros) and you would know Glenn has been treading very closely with defamation of character on this topic at best. Beck antagonizes Soros at every corner and he then wonders why today Soros sent a "Media Hit" on Beck. Beck seems to be oblivious of his wrongs and seems electrically charged that he has Soro's attention, all the while playing the "who me" card. Beck's bulb shines bright that he has the attention of the worlds richest man, and now NFTOS is positive that this is a war that Glenn loses badly, very, very badly. Often when you corner your enemy, they strike back. Soros and Pike have much power, certainly more than Fox, USCC, and Beck combined. But like Beck said, if he is out, another angry, anti America, anti establishment moron takes his warm seat.

{George Soros is a Hungarian-American currency speculator, stock investor, businessman, philanthropist, and social activist. He became known as "the Man Who Broke the Bank of England" after he made a reported $1 billion during the 1992 Black Wednesday UK currency crises. Soros had correctly anticipated that the British government would have to devalue the pound.}

Soros and Tides Foundation CEO Drummond Pike have called all troops to the front lines to ensure that Fox News and Glenn Beck get there due. Pike and Soros are calling on Fox advertisers too boycott the bullies of the right.

{Pike is an American philanthropist, activist and social entrepreneur. He founded Tides Foundation in 1976 and is the current CEO of Tides. Pike helped pioneer the advent of donor advised funds in philanthropy}

Both sides claim that each is a extremist and that each is the master at inciting anger and hate into America.

To date Soros and Company have has caused Glenn Beck's Fox News show to lose over 100sponsors. Despite the campaign's success, Fox insists it has had no impact on the channel's profitability because the overall demand for advertisements on Fox has remained stable. Companies are still paying to advertise on Fox News, but their ads are simply moved to a different time of day.

A small list of current advertisers of Fox are:

JP Morgan Chase & Co
GEICO (Berkshire Hathaway)
Zurich Financial
Direct Holdings Americas, Inc (Time-Life)
Lilly Corporate Center
The Hartford Financial Services Group, Inc

You can often watch Beck articulate a "Shaggy" voice (From scooby doo cartoon) calling Soros a "Spookey Guy". Since 2009 Beck has been on this conspiracy kick to where Soros and Pike are out to take over America and turn it into a communist Nazi regime.

Beck apparently is shocked to see that Soros and company have applied the cross hairs to the left upper quadrant of his chest. Beck today on TV challenges Soros telling him "to come on".

Fox news and Beck are not gun shy with their rhetoric on pitting Americans against Americans, telling their audience that our country is under attack by a demonic Nazi-like regime seeking to destroy all that is great about America all while insisting it's up to his viewers to resist and revolt. Beck has even warned his audience that "these are the most dangerous two years of our republic. Because in the end, in revolutions, the real dangerous killers show up." Beck has even compared our government to vampires while instructing his viewers to "drive a stake through the heart of the bloodsuckers" and pretended to poison Speaker Pelosi on television. A few months later, Gregory Giusti was arrested for repeatedly threatening House Speaker Nancy Pelosi -- including threatening to destroy her home -- because he was upset over health care reform. The man's mother told a local news station he listens to those with "really radical ideas," adding, "I'd say Fox News or all of those that are really radical."

And now Beck is crying foul because the shoe is on the other foot. Glenn is now the one with the bounty upon him. And that bounty is to see Beck out of mainstream media outlets! Period!

NFTOS does not support violence in any political arena, but Glenn Beck and Fox should be held accountable for the hate and anger they invoke while Beck is on the air. We have often complained to Dana Loesch about her anger and hate and what recourse applies when you support and advocate scare and hate tactics into already seething and angered Americans. Enclosed is an earlier blog blurb regarding the email to Loesch;

{Our researchers came up with this quote from a left wing friend of Loesch's (which honesty astonishes the bloggers of NFTOS that she has Democratic pals). Quoting photographer Steven Treusdell who has no problem calling out dear Dana... "You have the character of a hate radio DJ down pat," Truesdell wrote in an e-mail to Loesch in October. "Your continued rise in this arena will be fun to watch. You have the aggression, the looks, and the vocab to go far in 'Hate broadcasting' and right wing idolatry. Do be careful though, one day the outrage you urge in others will turn to violence and innocent people will die in your name. This is assured. That is a lot to live with, even when one has Religious righteousness and a fervent belief in their absolute rightness. I hope when that day comes you can live with the results of what you have sown."}
This applies to all whom impose this methodology!

It's time that the left stood up to these bullies. "What's good for the goose is good for the gander." While it's late, It's great too see these bullies being pushed back. It's time to stop the tea bagger from running amok! The Democrats finally "grew a pair" when they got health care reform passed, and it's not time to stop now. While a few Dems may have lost a few points in the polls, we need to remain the course.

Do not listen to the Beck's of the world, and watching the Republicans lose health care was like watching a whiny bitch, and when they lose they squeal like a pig! Quoting Bill Mahr "The Democrats need to push their agenda while their boot is on the neck of the greedy poisonous old reptile"! Who cares if Cap and Trade (Also called Emissions Trading and it is a market-based approach used to control pollution by providing economic incentives for achieving reductions in the emissions of pollutants.) is not popular, health care certainly wasn't, so don't stop now! Do the business you where voted to do!

NFTOS asks it's reader to boycott Fox News and Glenn Beck as Well.

One of the really sick ironies of life in the United States right now is that those who have the most in common with the most notorious moral monsters of this century, the Nazis and their fascist fellow-travelers--namely, the various far right hate-mongers and serial liars on TV and Hate radio, AKA Michael Savage, Dana Loesch, Laura Ingraham, Ann Coulter, Sean Hannity, and Glenn Beck--regularly accuse Democrats of being fascists and Nazis. And like the good fascist he is, Beck is also good at inciting mindless violence against his political enemies. So, as we and other's suggest, it's time for advertisers and viewers to boycott Fox, and for consumers to boycott any company that advertises on Fox, not just the GB BS hour.

Finally, its very obvious that a tea bagger cannot think for themselves, and they often rely upon Fox News and Glenn to do this mundane task for them.

We at NFTOS believe that "The Democrats in America where put on earth to do one thing, and that is to drag the ignorant hillbilly half of this country into the next century".........which in the Republican case is the 19th century"
