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.

Degrasse Tyson Slams Clownstick Followers

While visiting Bill Maher last Friday, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson ripped into America’s educational system which he blames for voters voting for presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

It all started with host Bill Maher lambasting the protesters in San Jose who attacked Trump supporters earlier in the week.
” I was watching these protestors yesterday,” Maher said, “I mean there were people pelting Donald Trump supporters. These are liberals who hate Donald Trump — and I understand why Mexican folks hate Donald Trump — and there is nothing that ruins the high from a fascist rally like an egg in the face.”
Daily Beast editor Jon Avlon concurred, saying they couldn't have helped Trump anymore if they had been paid by him.

deGrasse Tyson then jumped in and went on a rant over Trump supporters and the educational system he claims is responsible for them.


“As an educator I care about the population and the electorate,” he explained. “And all this attention going to complain about Donald Trump. You’re not really complaining about Donald Trump, there’s a major portion of the electorate who likes him, and so they are your obvious object of your ire. Then shouldn’t you be looking at the educational system that somehow allows people to not think about data, to not think about what is or is not true in this world?”
“You can knock Trump out of the contest and the population that supports him will just wait for the next one to rise up and you have to beat the next one over the head!”
