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.

Screw it that Trump got blasted yesterday by the top 50 GOP top security staff.

The big news is that CNN’s GOP “political analyst” Scottie Nell Hughes –has gone full Monty bat shit crazy!

Hughes argued on yesterday that pregnant women who have contracted the Zika virus should be banned from having abortions because birth defects were “nothing new.”

Sen. Marco Rubio insisted to Politico in a recent interview that abortion should be banned with no exceptions including cases where the Zika virus would cause the child to be born with severe microcephaly.

On Monday, Democratic strategist Maria Cardona told CNN’s Chris Cuomo that Rubio’s stance reflected the beliefs of many men in the Republican Party.
What Republicans did was they poisoned the [Zika] bill with efforts to try to cut back funding for those [reproductive health] clinics and to cut back funding on Obamacare,” Cardona explained. “They really weren’t interested in fixing this issue. They were interested in playing politics and Marco Rubio’s comment underscores why.”

Hughes agreed that microcephaly was a “devastating disease,” but added that children with birth defects were “nothing new.”
“We don’t have the research, we don’t know what Zika is going to do,” she opined. “And Sen. Rubio is doing the correct thing. One out of every 33 babies in the United States right now is born with a birth defect.”
“We’re going to sit there and terminate a life because you’re possibly going to be born with [microcephaly]?” Hughes asked. “I think that’s actually very hypocritical of the Democrat Party.”
“Abortion is definitely not the answer for a way to sit there and cure this disease.”
Scottie Nell Hughes, you are today’s most despicable human in the world! Congrats numb-nuts!
