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.

Bill Maher closed out his show last night by undermining [Fuckface Von Clownstick] Donald Trump’s complaints over the use of foul language by former Mexican President Vicente Fox.

“Talk about the pot calling the kettle orange,” Maher quipped, before showing a barrage of clips of the Republican presidential front-runner cursing during various public speeches.


The feud between Trump and Fox began on Thursday when Fox denounced Trump’s oft-stated promise that, should he be elected president, he would make Mexico pay for the construction of an elaborate wall along the US-Mexico border. Fox said during an interview, “I am not going to pay for that fucking wall,” and doubled down on the statement on Friday after Trump demanded an apology.

However, Maher said, the rise of “Andrew Dice Trump” in the race revealed that voters are enjoying his coarse brand of speaking.

“They kind of like it when a politician drops the facade and talks the way we all really talk,” he explained.

Maher then staged his own State of the Union address — an illustration, he said, of where the shifting tone in political discourse could go. Casting himself as the president in the scene, he quickly announced that “the state of our union is fucking awesome.”
