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.

Jimmy Kimmel took aim at the Minnesota dentist who illegally killed Cecil the lion near a national park in Zimbabwe.

The ABC talk show host said Walter Palmer, who owns a dental practice in Bloomington, had quickly become “the most hated man in America who never advertised Jello pudding.”

Kimmel wondered how a person could kill such a beautiful creature as Cecil, who was known for his apparent ease around humans.
“Is it that difficult for you to get an erection, that you need to kill things that are stronger than you?” he said. “If that’s the case, they have a pill for that.”

Kimmel said he wasn’t opposed to hunting on principle, but he said Palmer’s actions were disgusting.
“If you’re some asshole dentist who wants a lion’s head over the fireplace in his man cave so his douchebag buddies can gather around it and drink scotch and tell him how awesome he is, that’s just vomitous,” he said.
Kimmel showed photos of Palmer posing beside many other animals he had slain, including at least one illegal hunt, and said the dentist had “killed half of Noah’s ark.”

He teared up as he urged viewers to turn the lion’s senseless death into something positive by donating to the wildlife conservation group that had been tracking Cecil.
