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.

Late night host Stephen Colbert had some advice for House Speaker Paul Ryan on Tuesday to help him get in the mood for endorsing Donald Trump.
“You want the first time you endorse Donald Trump to be special,” Colbert explained. “Look at Chris Christie, he rushed right in to endorse and now everywhere he goes is a walk of shame.”
“Don’t worry, Paul, when you decide the time is right for you to endorse Trump, it will only last a minute,” the comedian added. “Just shut your eyes and think of Reagan.”
“Until you’re completely ready, maybe it’s just best if you stay home and endorse yourself.”
