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. What we are against: Radical Right Wing Agendas Incompetent Establishment Donald J. Trump Corporate Malfeasence We are for: Global and Econmoic Security Social and Economic Justice Media Accountability THE RESISTANCE

Much has been made of Clint Eastwood's bizarre speech at the Republican National Convention, but few have endeavored to explain what it really means. On Friday's "Daily Show," Jon Stewart not only reveled in the absurdity of the scene but also used it as a launching point for one of the more scathing commentaries of Romney's acceptance speech so far.

Stewart said:
"This is the most joy I've gotten from an old man since Dick Cheney non-fatally shot one in the face."
The full segment can be watched in three parts: the first lauds Eastwood's "fistful of awesome," the second takes on Romney's whitewashed portrait of America, and the third brings home the real message of Eastwood's speech: the difference between the real Obama and Republicans' Obama. Watch all three below.
