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,CNN and Andy 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.

HE'S GONNA DO WHAT?

At a speech before the National Right to Life Committee’s annual convention in New Orleans Friday morning, 2016 Republican presidential hopeful Sen. Marco Rubio compared the fight to limit women’s access to abortion to the fights to end slavery and for women to win the right to vote.

Right Wing Watch reported that Rubio called the historic Roe v. Wade decision “historically and egregiously flawed” and said that he would fight to restrict women’s right to choose “at home and around the world.”

“Sometimes in contemporary American life, we come to believe that all the great causes are over, that the past generation fought all the important battles: abolition, the Civil Rights Movement, women’s suffrage,” he said to the assembled crowd.
“But it’s not true,” he said. “In fact, one of the most important battles is the one that you are engaged in now.”
