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.

Fox and Friend mouth piece Elizabeth Hasselbeck did what little with an IQ above negative one hundred would do.

A Tweet by Fox & Friends host Elisabeth Hasselbeck on Tuesday attempted to tie the ongoing investigations into domestic abuse by a growing number of National Football League players to the 2012 attacks on a U.S. consulate in Benghazi. The move came a day before House Republicans begin their eighth investigation into the two-year-old tragedy.

After criticism for her initial tweet, Hasselbeck explained that since she had spoken with the mother of one of the people killed in the Benghazi attacks, she believed that “Inserting #Benghazi” into the NFL discussions “is NOT ridiculous-IT IS AN #HONOR.”

On Wednesday, a House Select Committee will hold its first hearing on the Benghazi attacks, attempting to find evidence about the 2012 attacks not discovered by any of the seven previous investigations. Indeed, a declassified version of the House Intelligence Committee’s analysis in July said that panel found “no deliberate wrongdoing by the Obama administration.”


A spokesman for the Benghazi committee said Tuesday that it “will consider all evidence, across all jurisdictions, and produce the final, definitive accounting on behalf of Congress of what happened before, during and after the terrorist attacks on our facilities in Benghazi.” The committee was created by the House Republican majority in May, almost entirely along party lines, despite Democratic objections that it was a waste of money and that that time could better be spent focusing on matters like income inequality. Despite vows not to fund raise off of the tragedy, it has become self evident to this blogger that this this is a popular fundraising tool for conservatives.

Teabaggers, Republicans, Tin Foil Hat Society Members and Bullshit Mountain [Fox News] alike - over the past two years have often attempted to link the Benghazi attacks to an plethora of seemingly unconnected issues, including crisis's like Ukraine, Gov. Chris Christie’s bridge scandal, the release of U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, immigration reform, deaths in Syria, and the resignation of former CIA Director David Petraeus. Hasselbeck, not wanting to be left out of the "connect an unrelated story to Benghazi" - Hasselbeck appears to be the first dipshit to connect the deaths in Libya to football.

God bless her, her ignorance is matched by none. Congratulations Elizabeth, you are today's asshat of the day!
