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. What we are against: Radical Right Wing Agendas Incompetent Establishment Donald J. Trump Corporate Malfeasence We are for: Global and Econmoic Security Social and Economic Justice Media Accountability THE RESISTANCE

Jon Stewart struggled to find comedy in the torture report out this week. He fought his hardest to avoid talking about it, but had to do a “swan dive into the grim morass of Satan’s anus.”

Fortunately, he found two bright spots to hone in on. First, the return of “good McCain.” John McCain spoke out strongly against torture this week and Stewart very happily celebrated the fact that McCain is back to being the straight talker he used to have the reputation of being.

And secondly, Stewart burst out laughing upon hearing Fox News host Andrea Tantaros dismissing the torture report because “America is awesome.” Stewart said, “That’s the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard!” He and correspondent Hasan Minhaj proceeded to mercilessly mock Tantaros over America’s supposed awesomeness.
