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.

OCTOBER SURPRISE: GOP Just Learned That YouTube Has A Search Function.

Sean Hannity Exposes Years Old Video Equates to "Nontroversary"

Matt Drudge:
“@DRUDGE: Curious tape dropping tonight. NOT from MOTHERJONES. Will cause controversy, ignite accusations of racism -- in both directions!” tweeted at 2:03 p.m. Tuesday.
"The veneer stripped away revealing the hollowness and rot inside." says one "EOD" over at the dead Breitbart's website. If only this was the case. It's nothing Mitt, just go back to your zingers, Governor. Not Breaking news, as Hannity is showing old Obama footage.

Sean Hannity, The Daily Caller [Tucker "I snooker you" Carlson], and Drudge Report spent hours hyping a racially explosive secret video of President Obama. But the bombshell clip turned out to be a public speech from Hampton University on June 2007 that was covered by you know who [fixed noise] on Tuesday, June 5, 2007. 6:00 PM EST. It was also covered by other major networks.

Excerpts of the open press speech to historically black Hampton University were already easily available (and quickly discovered by reporters after Drudge teased the clip on his website hours before the “new” Daily Caller/Hannity clip even aired). But Daily Caller founder Tucker Carlson claimed the video was relevant because it contained additional ad-libbed portions that went off the prepared remarks.

Let's not forget readers, that Carlson is a sneaky diabolical shit from way back, on November 9, 2010 Huffington Post writer Jack Mirkinson exposed Carlson for sending emails while posing as another - that other, my mentor Keith Olbermann. Just Google Carlson with words like 'unethical" and "diabolical" and view the plethora of disgusting stories that pop up. For added enjoyment, go to YouTube and search ” Dangerous Conversation with Tucker Carlson" parts one, two, three an four.

Among the sinister revelations Drudge, Hannity, and Carlson cited: Obama’s use of what they considered an overly African-American cadence to his voice in front of the majority. “This accent is absurd. This is not the way Obama talks,” Carlson said on Faux. Drudge Report teased “THE ACCENT” [Maybe we should hand out free copies of Rosetta Stone] and “THE ANGER” as scoops.


If the Romney campaign isn't embarrassed by this, I know why they're losing. Let's take a moment of silence for the ostensibly self-aware Romney flaks who will have to answer questions about this video today. What's funny is the GOP is running the exact same campaign as 2008, and is now wondering how they can possibly be losing like in 2008. Maybe we should give Faux News a break. They've only had five years to figure out how to run against Obama.

What can we take away from this bomb shell one day before the first debate:

Desperate times call for desperate measures - Faux News, Drudge Report and The Daily Caller all are still full of more fecal matter than a Christmas Turkey.

Lessons Learned: Having your own media outlet isn't always helpful in elections where lots of people vote.
Hint to Sean, Matt and Tucker: It isn't "breaking" if it's been on YouTube for more than 96 hours. 

On the scale of nontroversies, years old YouTube videos, are a step up from the birther stuff......I suppose. I honestly thought the GOP couldn't get any worse...guess what, we have been bamboozled again - to once again see that the bottom feeders still run rampant in the party of "know-nothings", the party of ignorance, the party that is aptly named, "The American Taliban".
