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.

Britain showed us what happens when you never think that the right wing nutters vote for something will actually win. Samantha Bee’s “Full Frontal” began with clips of interviews of people saying that they wish that hadn’t voted to leave and that they never thought it would happen. Now they are being forced with the harsh reality of an election.
“Look, your vote has consequences,” Bee explained. “You want to send a message? Use the Royal Mail, it still works! For now.”
Hopefully, however, America was looking at Great Britain and saying, “Oh God, what are we about to do?” Bee said, showing Trump at his golf course in Scotland. Clips of Trump telling the media that the European Union vote was great were only barely drown out by the bagpipes behind him. So much so that Bee couldn't decide which of the loud windbags was more painful to listen to.

The reality is, Brexit was solidified because pasty white uneducated bitter troglodytes went out and voted, leaving those who though that Brexit referendum would never come to fruition - left them holding the shit bag wanting a do-over.



Bee reminded the audience that we could still screw everything up if we forget to vote. But there is hope. “Trump’s brand of right-wing, racist, anti-immigrant demagoguery isn't American. It’s a European import. And if we’re smart, we’ll stop it at the border and send it back where it came from,” she closed.
