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.

Orange Hitler surrogate Scottie Nell Hughes said Sunday on CNN’s New Day that Trump has been “set up” for attacks after his comments about a heroic Muslim American Army captain who died serving in Iraq.

Hughes was talking about an interview with George Stephanopoulos on ABC News, in which Stephanopoulos questioned Trump about comments at the Democratic National Convention by Khizr Khan, father of fallen soldier Humayun Khan. Khan had criticized Trump for comments saying he would ban Muslims from entering the country.


“I think I’ve made a lot of sacrifices,” Trump said in the interview. “I work very, very hard. I’ve created thousands and thousands of jobs, tens of thousands of jobs, built great structures. I’ve had tremendous success. I think I’ve done a lot.”

Hughes said the interview was edited to make Trump look bad.
“But now that I’ve read the questions and the Trump campaign and others have released the full transcript, you can see what a set up this is,” she said. “Which was nothing but to trap Mr. Trump going forward.”
New Day host Victor Blackwell asked how Stephanapoulos asking, “What would you say to that father” was a set up. He also pointed out her reading of the transcript was inaccurate.

Scottie Nell Hughes, congratulations, you are today's worst person in the world!
