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.

The Lt. Governor of Texas ripped into Black Lives Matter protestors as “hypocrites” for fleeing as the bullets flew Thursday night, killing five police officers.

While Dallas police expressed no animosity towards the attendees at the peaceful protest, with some posing for photos with protesters, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick attempted to rile up viewers at a time when Dallas Police Chief Dave Brown and Mayor Mike Rawlings had successfully called for calm and healing.

Patrick acknowledged that the protest was peaceful before launching into a rant, claiming:
 “All these officers last night lost their lives protecting people who were protesting against them. This has to end.”

The lawmaker went on to claim that “Too many in the general public, who aren’t criminals but have a big mouth are creating situations like we saw last night.”
“We have to have their police back,” Patrick exclaimed. “And I’m sick and tired of those who are protesting our police and putting their lives in danger,” before adding, “All those protesters last night, they turned around and ran the other way expecting the men and women in blue to protect them. What hypocrites!”
Congratulations Dan Patrick, you are today's most disgusting human of the world, enjoy asshat!
