Your blogger

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.

Bill Maher last night had a message for the collegiate Class of 2045.
“I’d love to tell you kids that the world is your oyster — but the oysters are all dead,” said Maher, who delivered his message from the future — inside a climate-controlled dome. “Along with almost all species. But when that happened, did we give up and just start eating jellyfish? Well yes, of course we did.”

Clad in a silver cap and gown, Maher sought to remind the outgoing graduates of the resilient society in which they lived.
“Did we panic during the Zika epidemic of 2018? No,” he argued. “And many of the pinheaded babies born that year have gone on to become fine Republican congressmen.”
