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.

To the surprise of absolutely no one, Tina Fey returned to SNL on Saturday night to reprise her slaying impersonation of Sarah Palin, mocking the frantic and crazed endorsement speech the ex-VP candidate gave in Iowa earlier this week for Donald Trump.

Introduced by Darrell Hammond’s Trump, Fey began by saying she was taking a break from her “full time career of writin’ things on Facebook” to endorse the next president of the United States, Donald J. Trump.

Cutting to Trump, he called her “The total package. Smart. Legs. Yelling. Everything. I haven’t seen a woman this impressive since Jeb Bush.”


Fey’s Palin noted, “I’m here because we Americans are struggling. So many of us have lost our jobs at the factory or our reality shows about Alaska. We’ve seen our own children targeted by the police for no reason other than they committed some crimes.”

Then Fey launched into a riff on Palin’s sing-songy, rhyming babbling from the Iowa endorsement speech, including “a rock and roller, holy roller, pushing stroller, pro bowler with an abscessed molar.”
“She’s a firecracker. She’s a real pistol,” Trump said to the camera before pausing and adding a knowing smile, “She’s crazy, isn’t she?”
Then Fey as Palin went completely nuts.
