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.

Stephen Colbert said there is no one on Earth like Donald Trump — except for maybe one other person: Sarah Palin.

The “Late Show” host began singing Kelly Clarkson’s hit, “Since U Been Gone,” at the mere sight of the former half-term governor of Alaska and failed vice presidential candidate — who endorsed Trump during a wild speech Tuesday in Iowa.
“God I have missed you,” Colbert said to Palin’s photo. “It’s like a magical eagle made a wish on a flag pin and it came to life — which is great for me. While Trump, admittedly, has given me so much material to make jokes about, nobody compares to the original ‘material girl.'”
He played a montage of Palin revisiting some her catchphrase “greatest hits” during the endorsement speech, and but she also showed off some new prattling idioms — and even transcended language itself at several points.
“Sarah Palin just guaranteed Trump the evangelical vote because I think she was speaking in tongues,” Colbert said, blowing a kiss toward her photo. “I just wish she could endorse every candidate, because I think it would sound something like this.”


Colbert said he would first use a Taser to shock the part of his brain that understands sentence structure before attempting his Palin impersonation.

He then launched into a colloquial but confusing litany of breathless endorsements of various presidential candidates, peppered with resentful attacks on the media and education, in general, and sprinkled with cheerful inklings of violence.
