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.

Dan Savage and Ann Coulter clashed during Friday’s Real Times panel discussion - with Savage ripping into Coulter’s anti-immigrant rhetoric.

“Why do we want to throw these 11 million people out of the country?” Savage asked at one point. “They contribute more to our economy than they take out; they pay more in taxes than they receive in services; illegal immigrants commit fewer crimes per capita –”
“All of that is untrue,” Coulter responded. “Those are false facts. Not only are they false facts, but if they are true facts then you need to go and elect people who will change the laws.”
“But your rationale for building this wall is bullshit,” Savage shot back, a reference to Donald Trump’s insistence that he would build a wall at the US-Mexico border.


“No, the rationale is that he [would be] the commander-in-chief, he protects the borders,” Coulter countered. “Those are the laws.”
Earlier in the discussion, Coulter quipped that Savage “should be the spokesman for Hillary Clinton” because of his criticism toward the Republican base.
“That’s gonna be a big hit with the American people — who are overwhelmingly voting for Trump,” she said.
“No, the GOP base — which is overwhelmingly rubes, idiots, sexists, racists — are overwhelmingly voting for Trump,” Savage responded.
