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.

Shellie Zimmerman Arrested

Liar, Liar Pants On Fire

Shellie Zimmerman, 25, is the wife of George Zimmerman, the man who is charged with the second-degree murder of Trayvon Martin, a 16 year old African-American male.

She has been charged with perjury and was arrested Tuesday in connection with her husband's trial. The charge stems from her testimony about the family's finances. Following the shooting, there was a national outcry and there is still an ongoing debate about Zimmerman's responsibilities. An account was opened and interested parties were able to make donations. In a short amount of time the Zimmerman's had acquired over $135,000, and then failed to disclose the money in court at the initial bond hearing.

Under the microscope of scrutiny, did they think they would be able to keep the money a secret? Why was the money not immediately disclosed and verified?

Sheller Zimmerman was released on a $1,000 bond after being taken to the John E. Polk Correctional Facility, coincidentally the very same facility that is currently housing her husband.

She will be arraigned on July 31. If convicted, she faces a single year in prison for a first degree felony. Had the prosecutor's office sought a third degree charge, she could have faced up to 15 years.

The George Zimmerman family, two peas in a pod, a family of bullshit artists!
