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 War On Christmas may actually be happening this year, but it’s being waged by an unlikely culprit: Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.

Last week, Walker’s campaign sent an email encouraging supporters not to buy gifts for their children and to use that money instead to support his reelection effort.
“Instead of electronics or toys that will undoubtedly be outdated, broken, or lost by the next Holiday Season, help give your children the gift of a Wisconsin that we can all be proud of,” the email read.

Here is the email in full:

Walker is currently locked in a tight battle for reelection next year. He leads his possible opponents by anywhere between 4 and 7 percentage points.

Does this Koch Whore really envision many family scenarios throughout Wisconsin where parents are explaining to their children that the lack of presents underneath the tree is so they can have a Wisconsin they can all be proud of - and children are going to understand this? Seriously?

I have said numerous times that there is nothing beyond the pale of a tea bagger, and Scotty was taken fund-raising to a whole new low. One thing for sure, this numbnutz has huge testicles.
