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,CNN and Andy 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.

Obamacare By The Numbers


For nearly four decades the Public Option was rated between 65% and 75% favorable because people disliked the way insurance companies treated them. When Obama reformed health care, a couple of oil billionaire and some insurance company lobbyists easily convinced the teabillies that Obamacare was a communist plot to a socialist takeover. And as always the uneducated and less informed fell for it.
