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,CNN and Andy 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.

"HE'S AMERICAN"

Katrina Pierson, Trumps not so intelligent mouthpiece insisted on Monday that she and her boss continue to “believe” that a federal judge in the Trump University case is Mexican even though he is a U.S. citizen.

At a rally last week in California, Trump attacked Judge Gonzalo Curiel for hearing a class-action lawsuit against Trump University, which former students have called a scam.
“I think Judge Curiel should be ashamed of himself. I think it’s a disgrace that he’s doing this,” Trump said. “The judge, who happens to be, we believe, Mexican…I think the Mexicans are going to end up loving Donald Trump.”
On Monday, CNN host Alisyn Camerota called out Pierson for attacks on the judge’s ethnicity.
“Katrina, ‘We believe he’s Mexican,’ what is that?” Camerota asked.
Pierson argued that suing Trump University was “like saying if you graduate from Harvard and you don’t have the same outcome in your profession as everyone else, you should sue Harvard. And that’s just simply absurd.”

“All sorts of things were over promised,” the CNN host interrupted, “that Donald Trump was going to playing a more active role than he was, that there was more of a rate of job success than really was true.”
Pierson replied: “I think what is really interesting about this particular judge — as Mr. Trump refers to him as a Trump hater — is he even mentions on his judicial questionnaire that he was a La Raza lawyers association member. This is an organization that has been out there organizing these anti-Trump protesters with the Mexican flags, they are pushing it, these signs have been very apparent.”
