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.

Faux News, Fixed News, Fox Noise does "Gods Work" because democrats fail to mention the almighty in their platform at DNC.

Last night, Jon Stewart carefully showed how Fixed News covered the RNC versus the DNC, and how the criticisms and praises were completely switched.

Stewart noticed some very glaring discrepancies in how the network covered the DNC and RNC, bashing the network for praising Republicans for the very things that they were strongly criticizing the Democrats for this week, from the policy in the speeches to the celebrities speaking at the conventions.

Stewart also brought up Fox News bashing the inclusion of celebrities at the DNC while expressing their profound love of Clint Eastwood last week. Stewart noticed that not only can Fox News not seem to recall anything that happened during the Bush presidency, but has “amnesia” that is making it forget what happened only a week ago. Eric Bolling was touched by Ann Romney‘s story, but was completely deprecating of Michelle Obama‘s. Stewart said, “Between the weekend of Tampa and Charlotte, Eric Bolling’s heart shrank three sizes.”

Last week, Brit Hume was enthused by how specific Paul Ryan got when talking about policy, but found Bill Clinton‘s detailed speech to be “wonky” and concerned with fitting in so many details. Chris Wallace at the DNC? The Democrats have “no specific plans about this economy.” But at the RNC, Wallace decided to not share what he liked and disliked about the speech because he didn’t want to take away from the celebrating.

And as for Wallace’s comment that people should just “shut up and watch,” Stewart noticed that would make a perfect slogan for Faux News.
