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.

Sarah Silverman released a video on Monday expanding on her support for Sen. Bernie Sanders in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, the Daily Beast reported.
“This man is running for president on a platform that is just a giant ‘f*ck you’ to the above-the-law billionaire class who have been controlling government policy with their money and not paying a nickel in taxes through government loopholes they secure with said money.”
Silverman also identified herself as a former supporter of Sanders’ opponent, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, even though it meant rationalizing Clinton’s financial support on the part of corporate donors.
“Every politician takes money from big money, ever since it was made legal through Citizens United,” Silverman explained. “It’s legalized corruption. If all the other ball players are taking steroids, you have to take steroids too to compete, right?”

Silverman said that she felt she had more in common with Sanders’ platform, emphasizing his reliance thus far on individual donors, while also rejecting the notion that his being a Democratic Socialist would be bad for the country.

“Good lord, under President Sanders, don’t worry, you can still become a super-rich asshole,” Silverman said. “It’s just that your fellow hard-working citizens don’t have to feed their children cat food in order for you to do it.”
At the same time, she assured viewers she did not want to push anyone into voting.
“If you vote or not, that’s not my business — I’m not your money,” she said. “Though like your mommy, I have a completely full bush.”
