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.

Bill Maher skewers Trump over lawsuit last night: The law is not a "Toy For Rich Idiots To Play With".

After sitting back for days in deafening silence, Maher came out blasting Donald "orangutan" Trump, for the frivolous suit that Trump filed against Maher.

Maher told Trump he needs to understand two basic concepts: “what a joke is and what a contract is.” He briefly summed up how he got to this point, making it clear it was an obvious joke about Trump. In the middle of the New Rule, Maher exasperatedly said, “Really? We’re going to court about this?” He remarked that Trump was so upset he couldn’t stop “flinging his feces.”

Maher made the pretty obvious point that what he said is defended under free speech laws and said Trump should “just suck it up like everybody else.” Instead, Trump’s lawyer initially sent Maher a letter with the following declaration:
“Attached hereto is a copy of Mr. Trump’s birth certificate, demonstrating that he is the son of Fred Trump, not an orangutan.”

Maher asked, “Do these morons even know it’s impossible for people and apes to produce offspring?” He said this is not a liberal case, but instead a “bold new precedent that jokes on late night talk shows are now legally binding agreements.” Maher tore into Trump and his lawyer by explaining that “the legal system in this country, it’s not a joke, it’s not a toy for rich idiots to play with.”


Maher stuck the skewer in even further when he mockingly raised questions about why Trump only released the short-form birth certificate to satisfy those in the “ape-r” movement. Maher concluded by dismissing Trump as “a man who, for a little extra publicity, will happily keep alive a debate over whether his family reunions are held at the zoo.”

Donald Trump, you've been crushed, pwned, and verbally bitch slapped. You Donald are today's biggest asshat of the day.
