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,CNN and Andy 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.

YEAH, WE MEANT TO DO THAT

Fuckface Von Clownstick’s [Donald Trump] first television campaign commercial falsely portrays a Moroccan border as the one between Mexico and the US — but his camp insists that was done intentionally.
“No shit it’s not the Mexican border but that’s what our country is going to look like,” campaign manager Corey Lewandowski told NBC News on Monday. “This was 1,000 percent on purpose.”
The ad, which is slated to air in early-primary states Iowa and New Hampshire, features footage aired on Italian television in 2014 of Moroccan immigrants entering Melilla, a Spanish enclave. But the narration repeats the candidate’s claim that he will “stop illegal immigration by building a wall on our southern border that Mexico will pay for.”



According to Politifact, another spokesperson for Trump’s campaign, identified as Hope Hicks, originally said that she did not know the source of the footage and would not speak for the company that produced the video. The logo for RepubblicaTV, the network where it originally aired, cannot be seen in the video.

The commercial also fails to mention that increased immigration law enforcement and economic conditions within the US have led to more immigrants leaving the country than there are coming in.


"Yeah, we meant to do that." If this is correct, you're an idiot of epic proportions, if not, you're still and idiot of epic proportions!
