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.

Helping aide Trevor Noah prepare to watch the State of the Union address for the first time, was correspondent Roy Wood Jr. offered up his predictions for what President Barack Obama will cover on Tuesday.
“More of a preview of the exhibits in the Obama presidential library — the Affordable Care Act, the climate change deal, how he taught not one but two Portuguese water dogs to fist-bump,” Wood said. “But what I do know for sure about this year’s speech? Obama has no more fucks to give.”
As proof, Wood pointed out how relaxed Obama looked in a picture promoting the address on Twitter:

“Look at his face — he does not care,” Wood said. “That’s the same face I make when I’m about to leave my job.”

But for the most part, he argued, the event is more of an obligation for the president, during which they are expected to call the state of the union “strong” no matter what is going on, or risk creating an awkward moment like Gerald Ford did during his 1975 address when he declared it not good.”

“You know Trevor, when America asks you if it looks fat in its jeans, it’s not really looking for an honest answer,” Wood explained. “Just say America has a bangin’ ass and be done with it.”
