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.

An emotional Samantha Bee opened Full Frontal on Monday night, and immediately went off on America’ response to yet another mass shooting by attacking the shooter, the NRA, Florida Gov. Rick Scott and a gun culture that enabled a man to slaughter 49 people in an Orlando nightclub.
“The standard operating procedure is that you stand on stage and deliver some well-meaning words about how we will all get through this together, how love wins, how love conquers hate,” she began. “And that is great and that is beautiful. But you know what? Fuck it! I’m too angry for that! Love does not win unless we start loving each other enough to fix our fucking problems!”


With that she was off saying, “Mass shootings have become so frequent in this country that the only thing that will stop a bad guy with a gun is another bad guy with a gun who coincidentally came to shoot up the same place.”

Bee also lashed out at the NRA’s support of assault weapons, saying, “We can’t constitutionally get rid of all guns, but can’t we get semi-automatic assault rifles out of the hands of civilians? Yes! Sam Bee wants to take your guns away. The ones that mow down a room full of people in a second! Yes, I do want to take those guns away. These high-capacity penis substitutes.
