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.

Jon Stewart last night blasted three "Republican" congressmen on Monday for being climate change deniers sitting on the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. Kind of like an oxymoron this is - conservatives on science and intelligence committees.

Stewart showed footage of three Tin Foil Hat Society Members - Larry Buschon (R-IN), Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) and Steve Stockman (R-TX) each thinking they could counter White House scientific advisor John Holdren’s evidence during a hearing last week, only to get shut down.

Holdren, Stewart said, had the Sisyphean task of “pushing a million pounds of idiot up a mountain,” including one exchange where Holdren told Buschon to “look at the scientific literature” regarding climate change.

In response, Buschon scoffed at reading findings from “climatologists whose career depends on the climate changing,” saying, “I could read that, but I don’t believe it.”

Instead of reading the Journal of Applied Meteorology and Climatology, Stewart said, Buschon was relying on the opinions of YouTube commenter's like “Obummerlies1776″ for his opinions on climate change, and scoffing at people who study the phenomenon for a living.

To all the Tin Foil Hat Society Members - NEWSFLASH: In the future, our descendants will not be as mad at us about the National Debt nearly as much as Global Warming and Fukushima.

Science and Climate Change deniers, you are all today's asshat of the day!
