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.

In Keith Olbermann’s Thursday edition, he names names when listing off all the ways that both Trump’s campaign and his official surrogates are truly deplorable.

Olbernamm lists off the fact that vice-presidential nominee Mike Pence can’t bring himself to describe David Duke as “deplorable”; new videos of Trump supporters punching protesters, including a 69-year-old woman who was on an oxygen tank; Trump surrogate Carl Paladino calling for the lynching of Attorney General Loretta Lynch and for smearing Khzir Khan as a member of the Muslim Brotherhood; and Trump himself making sexist remarks about Megyn Kelly, Carly Fiorina and Heidi Cruz.


Olbermann pointed out that all of these deplorable statements must be aimed at drawing the support of people who are, in all likelihood, pretty deplorable.
“These are campaign leaders, surrogates, friends of Mr. Trump,” Olbermann pointed out. “If they’re not talking to a basket full of deplorables, who are they talking to? Why would you have them there? You stuff like that at work, you get fired.”
