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,CNN and Andy 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.

WAR ON CHRISTMAS


It's that most wonderful time of year when Fox News starts drumming up the case for a "War on Christmas," and Jon Stewart isn't putting up with it anymore. Host Gretchen Carlson asked on air whether she was "nuts" to think the war was real, and on last night's Daily Show, Stewart was happy to set her straight: "Yes, you're f--king nuts." Sure, Faux News can scrounge for isolated moments of anti-Christmas spirit, but "the rest of us can't swing a dead elf without knocking over an inflatable snow globe or a giant blinking candy cane," Stewart bellows.

And Christmas, which used to last just one day, "like birthdays do," is only growing: This year, Black Friday expanded into Black Thursday, "or as we used to call it, Thanksgiving. Christmas is so big now, it's eating other holidays," Stewart proclaims. "Watch your ass, Halloween, you're next!"
