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. Trump Corporate Malfeasence We are for: Global and Econmoic Security Social and Economic Justice Media Accountability THE RESISTANCE

Many members of the African-American community have taken issue with Trump’s new chair of African American outreach: The former winner of ‘The Apprentice’ Omarosa Manigault. Tuesday evening before the Republican National Convention got started, comedian Samantha Bee dropped a quick promotional video for her upcoming special, airing Wednesday.
“Today was the first day of the RNC,” Bee said, a day later. “But really, isn’t it all just one big, long, black, chilling night?”
After mocking the bizarre hashtag the RNC choose, rncincle, and trying to pronounce it, Bee brought up Omarosa.

“She’s uniquely qualified since she’s the only African-American the campaign has ever reached out to,” Bee mocked. “She’s going to do great. Oh, I guess Stacey Dash wasn’t available. Fine.”
Bee also wanted everyone to know that she’d be posting updates throughout the week on the #RNCinCLE. She’s doing it, not so much to talk about the convention, but to let people know her location for safety purposes.
