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 says Antonin Scalia, Sarah Palin and Donald Trump are more racists than Paula Deen.


The American people know Racism 1.0 (Paul Deen style) when they see it, and most don’t like it. [other than the Talibangelicals] Many Americans haven’t learned to recognize it, or don’t want to face the reality of Racism 2.0 (Trump, Palin, Scalia, Gingrich).

Bill Maher was right to call out the new form or racism, but wrong to try to split the two. America is right to punish Paula Deen’s type of racism - but for us to not address Donald Trump, Sarah Palin, and this new breed of racism - they should be held accountable, and held to the same standard.

Despite what the Supreme Court believes, racism is alive and well in America. Whether it be racism 1.0, or 2.0, the goal should be to eliminate it all.
