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.

AMES, IA — Each time Republican presidential candidate "Fuckface Von Clownstick" aka Donald Trump is given a public platform, he manages to offend even more Americans. On Saturday morning he took aim at Sen. John McCain and veterans, saying McCain is “not a war hero” because he was captured during the Vietnam War.

“He’s a war hero cause he was captured,” Fuckface Von Clownstick said during the Family Leadership Summit. “I like people that weren’t captured.”

Clownstick later told press that he would not apologize to McCain and that McCain picked the fight. The two have been feuding since McCain said that Trump is “firing up the crazies” after people gathered in Arizona to support the candidate who called immigrants from Mexico “rapists.”

McCain endured five and a half years as prisoner of war after he was shot down over Hanoi and badly injured — two of those years were spent in solitary confinement.
