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.

A new poll from NBC News, the Wall Street Journal, and Telemundo found that Donald Trump is very unpopular with Latinos. This is in spite of Trump’s claims that he has significant Latino support. Trump still holds a wide lead with GOP primary voters ahead of the campaign’s first debate Thursday. He remains in the lead at 19 percent, compared with Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker at 15 percent and Florida Governor Jeb Bush at 14 percent.

Trump faced controversy from day one of his campaign, when he called Mexican immigrants ‘rapists’ in his announcement speech. The poll found that a majority of Latinos found those remarks to be “insulting and racist.”
