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.

We all remember what Republicans and Saxby Chambliss did to former Senator Max Cleland, a disabled war hero when they ran against him in 2002. They ran ads picturing Cleland and Osama Bin Laden together to denounce his patriotism which is unconscionable considering Cleland won the Bronze and Silver Stars in Vietnam while also losing both legs and his right forearm in service to his country.

We now move to the present and former Iraq war torturer Alan West who is going Cleland on Rep. Tammy Duckworth, who has lost both her legs in the Iraq war also by saying she's not loyal to her country. This isn't the first time she's been attacked for her military service by Tea Party Republicans.

Allen West, you are today's worst person in the world!

Mr. West is no relation to this blogger.
