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.

Larry Wilmore has waged a Twitter war with Fox News host Bill O’Reilly on Tuesday evening’s show.

On O’Reilly’s Monday night episode, the right-wing host had presidential candidate Donald Trump on to talk about his campaign and his ability to provide jobs to the African-American community.
“How are you going to get jobs for them?” O’Reilly asked. “Many of them are ill-educated and have tattoos on their foreheads, and I hate to be generalized about it but it’s true. If you look at all the educational statistics, how are you going to give jobs to people who aren’t qualified for jobs?”


“What the fuck did you just…” Wilmore said astounded. “Just so you know, Bill O’Reilly, I’m one of those rare black people who don’t have a forehead tattoo. But if I did, it’d be this,” he said pulling out a sign that says “FUCK U O’Reilly.”

Wilmore further asked all races in his “Nightly Show” audience to make their own forehead tattoos to say something to O’Reilly and to use the hashtag#ForeheadSolidarity.

“If you have a forehead, you, too can tell Bill O’Reilly to go fuck himself,” Wilmore said.
