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.

Daily Show host Jon Stewart and his team mocked Fox News on Monday for taking the weird story of Rachel Dolezal and feeding it to their “exhausting, 24-hour Benghazi Obamaphone culture war dog whistle Who-gives-a-fuckotron.”

Stewart himself was somewhat befuddled that Dolezal, a white woman of Czech, Swedish and German descent, would go so far as to not only pretend to be black, but become head of the Spokane chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) before resigning amid a hail of criticism after her ruse was made public.
