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 took another swipe at Hillary Clinton this week, portraying her pandering for votes in New York, taking a shot at Bernie Sanders supporter Susan Sarandon and recreating the candidate’s difficulties using a Metrocard to get on the subway.

Acknowledging her recent string of primary losses to Sanders, Clinton explains that she is happy to be back in New York — or as she calls it: “the Fat Apple.”
“God I love being back in the Fat Apple,” she explains. “My home state — except for Illinois and Arkansas — but they’ve already voted, so we cool, we cool.”
Donning a Yankees hat, she fake noshes on a New York hot dog and street vendor peanuts before flipping the hat around exposing a Mets logo, saying, “Ah. God I love those New York Meets!”


Encouraging voters to turn out for Tuesday’s primary — which is actually a week from this coming Tuesday — Clinton urges younger voters who are mainly in the Sanders camp to skip voting because, “voting is for nerds. Who cares? Just sleep in.”

Turning to vocal Sanders advocate, actress Susan Sarandon, Clinton offered an alternative suggestion for election day referencing her famous role in Thelma and Louis.
“To Susan Sarandon who said Trump might be better for America than me,” Clinton stated, “Why don’t you take Tuesday to go drive off another cliff.”
