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.

Ann Coulter Has A Source

Ann Coulter To Hannity: ‘I Have An Unnamed Source In Kenya Who Says That Obama Was Born In Kenya’

Ann Coulter appeared on Sean Hannity‘s show tonight to react to Senator Harry Reid‘s continued insistence that Mitt Romney has not paid taxes in a decade, despite not having the facts to back it up. Coulter mockingly responded to Reid by saying, “I have an unnamed source in Kenya who says that Obama was born in Kenya.”

Coulter claimed that President Obama and his political team have a history of disqualifying his opponents based on issues in their personal lives, citing examples from when Obama ran for political office in Illinois. She even brought up mainstream media news stories focusing on the personal lives of the McCains and Palins during the 2008 campaign.

Hannity agreed with Coulter and said that the Obama team has been bringing up so many irrelevant side issues because “he can’t run on his record.” He asked Coulter if the attacks on Romney can work. Coulter doubted it would.

“Not with so many people unemployed. I mean, the Obama campaign message is, ‘You can vote for the guy who put millions of people out of work, quadrupled the deficit, wrecked American health care, or you can vote for that really mean guy whose wife owns a horse.’”

And speaking of Ann Romney‘s horse, Hannity and Coulter brushed off a new add from speaking from the perspective of Rafalca herself. Coulter maintained that Romney should not release his tax records, because she said it would be giving in to Obama’s “modus operandi” of making a big deal out of something “even if nothing’s there.”
