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.

Bill Maher in his New Rules segment last night spoke on free speech, free speech for all, not just Liberals.

Liberals, via blogs and Twitter, took umbrage to Maher's attack on their one-sided view of free speech - Maher calling liberals "a part of the problem" and "your not even a proper liberal" for their relentless attacks on Rush Limbaugh and his sponsors.

Often the case, whether Liberal or Conservative, Americans take offense when its them - to which the free speech is intended, and which points to their humanistic failures.

Being one of the most Liberal men that this world has to offer, Maher's comments are spot on. I take no offense, but as repeatedly as honesty does, to those who seek honesty, and to those who the honesty is directed to - offense is taken.

Times are frequent when I disagree with Maher, but I do not go into tirades when our ideologies doesn't align. Liberals often invoke, when it comes to same sex marriage and abortion, that if you don't like them, then don't have one. Rush Limbaugh and as putrid comments are the same. I despise the drugster more than anyone, but he is entitled to blather on with his hate. How do I address it, I never listen to Rush Limbaugh and I silently boycott the advertises who support his smut.

What's good for the goose is good for the gander. Hey Liberals, if your going to talk the talk, then walk the walk. Put your adult diapers on and act like grown ups - and not be whiny little bitches who are offended because the "fact dart" is being tossed at you and not at the green slimy toed sloth [republicans].

Yes, in your free speech, you are entitled to vent your displeasure at the drugster, but, the drugster, like Charlie Hebdo, are entitled to doll out their version of diarrhea of the mouth and constipation of the brain as well.
