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.

Stephen Colbert took to the airwaves last night to mock Fox News's relentless scare tactics about Ebola.

As only Colbert can, he eviscerates the ignorance that is Fox News, and as per the norm, Fox News avoids the scientific facts and goes full monty with their mantra of serial misinformation.

I certainly hope that this Faux News Ebola "scare" is over soon before some kid dresses up as an Ebola patient on Halloween, trick-or-treating, and makes the mistake of ringing [conservative right wing nutjob] Kincannon's doorbell - and is "humanely executed!"

And they say there are no "death panels" in the U.S.

Fox News, Todd Kincannon, Betsy McCaughey and "judge" Jeannie Pirro - you are today's asshats of the day. Congrats fear mongers.
