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.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he hasn't installed a secret email system in the governor's office for conducting campaign business and that he's followed the law when it comes to separating his gubernatorial duties from campaigning, but:

Walker once again refused to say whether as county executive he knew of or used a secret email system set up in his office to avoid public scrutiny.
On Monday he called it a "slippery slope" to answer specifics about the more than 27,000 records released last week, because "once you start on one thing, then there's hundreds of questions on each of those."
Walker would not say whether he favored releasing all the documents that the Journal Sentinel and other outlets are seeking to obtain.

So far, six people, three of them former Walker aides, have been convicted in the investigation - of his time when Walker was a Milwaukee County executive. But other than claiming that he's running a clean ship as governor, Walker won't talk about that investigation.

Last week, thousands of emails from the investigation were released, including racist jokes emailed in his office. About those emails, Walker now says they were "stupid things that people said along the way."
"Obviously anybody that says something that's out of character with who I am and the people that surround me would concern me. I would guess that any office or any business that had 27,000 emails (released) would probably have a few that people would be less than pleased with out there."
So, if we read the Koch whore correctly, he was concerned about those emails because people were "less than pleased with" them? Makes sense I guess - but it does explains why he doesn't want to talk about, let alone release, whatever other emails might be out there related to this investigation.
