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.

Today we at NFTOS mourn the loss of one of the world’s most gracious and greatest humans - that this world has ever seen.

Nelson Mandela, a tireless advocate for human rights and an inspiration to millions across the globe, passed away this day.

His courage and strength will live on – as will his immortal words: “I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.” and “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” ― Nelson Mandela, 1918 - 2013
