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,CNN and Andy 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.

WHEN A CITIZEN CHALLANGES THE POLICE


How’s this for a twist? An average citizen decided to pull a Washington state police officer over, asked him a few questions, and even checked his identification.

Gavin Seim pulled the cop over for what appeared to be an unmarked sheriff car violation. And the conversation, remarkably, didn't get as heated as you might think.

"I'm not going to write you up today"?

Since the The Young Turks tossed the race card into the mix - it is my belief that if indeed a man of color did this, the ass kicking they'd have received would've made the Rodney King assault look like a deep tissue massage.
