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.

States That Are Trying To Suppress The Vote

Voter suppression laws have been passed across the country, but Pennsylvania's voter ID law may be the most restrictive one yet.

After yesterday's oral arguments, its fate now rests in the hands of the PA Supreme Court. If you missed it, check out the comprehensive coverage of what happened, and what we can expect.

Let's be clear readers the only way the Robme/Lyin Ryan ticket can win is to suppress the vote.

You think Newsroom was first? No. Keith Olbermann talked about Dorothy Cooper and her inability to vote last year. He did what Newsroom does - but every single night. Substantive reporting, incisive commentary, and all delivered with wit and compassion.

I miss seeing my mentor Keith Olbermann on my TV screen each night.

If the above videos don't get your attention, watch this last one.

Get out and "rock the vote" readers, speak to your neighbors, your workmates, speak at social events, we need to ensure that "all" Americans keep this very fundamental right, the right to vote!
