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.

As upset as he was over an “unforced error” on Monday, Daily Show host Jon Stewart saved the most anger for Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade for invoking the 9/11 attacks to paint Stewart as being anti-police.
“By the way, jackass, you can truly grieve for every officer who’s been lost in the line of duty in this country, and still be troubled by cases of police overreach,” Stewart said. “Those two ideas are not mutually exclusive. You can have great regard for law enforcement and still want them to be held to high standards.”
Stewart opened the show by apologizing for mistakenly listing Dante Parker alongside recent victims of police shootings like Tamir Rice and John Crawford in Ohio. Parker was actually Tased during an encounter with San Bernardino County sheriff’s deputies this past August before dying at a local hospital. His cause of death was listed as a drug overdose.

Stewart was upset with himself for the error, he said, because it would shift the discussion away from the larger issues surrounding police use of force.

Fox news lies constantly, its to the point where media outlets and journalists alike - they just ignore Fox and move on to the real news of the day.
