Your blogger

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. What we are against: Radical Right Wing Agendas Incompetent Establishment Donald J. Trump Corporate Malfeasence We are for: Global and Econmoic Security Social and Economic Justice Media Accountability THE RESISTANCE

New NBA commissioner Adam Silver took swift and very powerful actions on LA Clipper owner Donald Sterling over his racists comments. Silver lowered the boom and banned him for life from the NBA, fined him 2.5 million dollars, which is the maximum allowed under NBA rules and is urging the Board of Governors to make him sell the team. No matter what the owners decide, Sterling's lifetime ban will stick.

I can imagine soon - that the "baggers" will ooze from the woodwork, blaming Obama and Holder for denying this filthy pile of steaming crap his 1st Amendment Rights

The NBA has stepped up and done what little will do, they stood up to a disgusting racist and said, not on my watch. Finally, an organization with testicular fortitude!

Donald Sterling, you are NFTOS "Dick" of the year! Congratulations asshat!
