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.

SNL. blasted the GOP debates, mocking the Thursday showdown on the Fox Business channel.

Cast member Taran Killiam used his portrayal of Texas Senator Ted Cruz to mock the controversy over his citizenship status by stating that he can’t be Canadian because “Canadians are well liked — I am not.”
“Canadians are rugged and outdoorsy, whereas I am mostly made of pudding,” he continued. “Canadians are genuine and warm, whereas when I smile it looks like I am peeing.”
Pressed to explain what he meant when he attacked rival Donald Trump over his “New York values,” he gave examples that made it apparent what he was really talking about.
“I think most people know exactly what New York values are. And frankly, they are not the rest of the country’s values,” he said. “Instead of celebrating Christmas, New Yorkers celebrate a pagan holiday called ‘Festivus.’ Instead of watching American football, they challenge each other to masturbation contests. In New York people don’t say ‘hi’ to their neighbors. They say ‘Hello, Newman.’”

Told he was describing episodes of “Seinfeld,” Cruz replied: “Believe me, if I could say liberal Jews, I would.”
