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

A tenebrous Bill Maher pressed his Real Time panel to explain the unfolding terrorist attack in Paris Friday night by posing a simple question: “Why do they hate us?”

Maher, whose distaste for Islam is well documented and led to extraordinary exchange with actor Ben Affleck who told him his hatred of the religion was “gross” and “racist,” was relatively subdued — possibly because of the ongoing horror in Paris.
“We don’t have every bit of information, the last body count I heard was over 150,” Maher explained to the panel made up of Dylan Rattigan, Jay Leno, and Michael Steele. “When the Charlie Hebdo thing happened the week after everybody said ‘Je suis Charlie.’ But not really. They didn’t really stick with them… I’m gonna ask you this question that people asked after 9/11, because I don’t think we really know the answer: Why do they hate us?”
