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.

Saying she was proud to have supported the candidacy of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, comedian Sarah Silverman touted the nomination of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — only to have to make an off-script comment to Sanders delegates on the floor.

“Bernie showed us that all of American citizens deserve quality health care and education, not just the wealthy elite,” Silverman said after explaining that she had been “feeling the Bern” for the past year.

She then turned to Clinton, saying, “It’s so inspiring. Just a few years ago she was a secretary and now she’s going to be president. She’s like the only person ever to be overqualified for a job–as the president. I will vote for Hillary with gusto, as I continue to be inspired and moved to action by the ideals set forth by Bernie.”

As her speech wrapped up, she was met with chants of “Bernie! Bernie!” only to hold up her hand and respond, “Can I just say to the `Bernie or Bust’ people—you’re being ridiculous.”
