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 mouthpiece Kayleigh McEnany may have gone a bridge too far when she defended the presidential nominee from attacks from a former beauty queen he publicly fat-shamed as she equated her with a refugee who set off bombs in New York City.

Trump has been under fire since the Monday night debate, after former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called him out for his treatment of women — in particular, former Miss Universe Alicia Machado.

McEnany first defended Trump making Machado having to workout in a gym in front of reporters, saying “She didn’t have to do that,” only to be shouted down as it was explained to her that Machado was a Trump employee.


She then attempted dismiss Machado’s claims over being called “Miss Piggy” and Miss Housekeeping” when she was employed by Trump after winning one of his beauty pageants.

McEnany cited a tabloid article claiming Machado once threatened the life of a judge in her native Venezuela, leading to some squabbling on the panel.

After it was pointed out that Machado just became a U.S. citizen and that she would never have passed a background check if such allegations were true, McEnany blurted, “It can’t be very tough because we just had two refugees, one setting off bombs in New York City, so it can’t be that big of a risk.”
