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.

The Republican Christmas Song

Christmas, as seen from the perspective of a tea bagger.

Homeless sleeping by an open fire

Making tea by melting snow

Snuggling in houses of cardboard and tape

And they dine on garbage rich folks throw

Health insurance? Please, you know they never have the dough

With used Kleenex they make due

If they’re hit with a case of the flu

The Pauper’s ward will have to do

When we drive by watching from our SUVs

We get so warm when we see red eyes all aglow

How absurd to say that homelessness makes people sad

It’s plain to see the frowns are just for show

So here’s the deal, you lazy parasites

If it’s 10 degrees or 22

You are free to decide if to freeze or to starve

Merry Christmas to you

Roger West
