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.

Trevor Noah explained on Wednesday that he came to two realizations while watching primary results come in a night earlier.

“People are batshit crazy,” Noah said. “And also, a lot of Republicans are treating Donald Trump’s takeover the way they treat climate change — in other words, they deny it.”


To substantiate his position, Noah showed Sen. Marco Rubio’s attempt to somehow spin Trump’s seven wins on Super Tuesday into a positive for himself. Noah went on to say:
“Like antibiotic-resistant bacteria, Donald Trump is an uncomfortable reality,” 
Noah also laughed at Sen. Ted Cruz for insisting that winning four out of 15 contests thus far made him the party’s only viable challenger against the real estate magnate.
“You’re not co-winners, Ted Cruz,” Noah said. “Just the way he says it: ‘Every one of those states has been won by Donald Trump or myself … And if you look at myself and Jay-Z combined, we have both slept with BeyoncĂ© on numerous occasions, and that is why I will stop Obama.'”
The saddest part of the whole affair, he said, was that political climate change and its environmental counterpart shared one characteristic.

“Regardless of whose fault it is, Republican denial is going to end up hurting all of us,” Noah said.
