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

 With all the news about horrible fraternity behavior, Bill Maher had a message last tonight for people still engrained in frat culture: “get the fuck out.”

Maher, certainly no prude, said frats are really becoming a huge problem when you have abuse going on, racial epithets flying around, and even people dying from hazing rituals. And after going through some of the most screwed-up methods of hazing members, Maher asked, “Jesus, why not just pledge ISIS?”

He said if anyone wants to go to college to “paint your face or degrade women or drink yourself sick,” they should really rethink the idea of college in the first place.
