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.

Samantha Bee tore into Cheeto Jesus last night for wondering aloud if Ghazala Khan “wasn’t allowed to have anything to say” when her husband criticized him during the Democratic National Convention.
“She was too choked up from seeing her son’s picture,” Bee said, before asking the Republican presidential candidate, “Why are you allowed to have anything to say?”
Bee pointed out that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton accepted the Democratic nomination amid endorsements from not only lawmakers, but President Barack Obama, First Lady Barack Obama, police officers and “half the fucking Pentagon.”


“That is how good you have to be if you’re a woman running for president — and she still might lose to this,” she said, as an image of Trump surfaced behind her. “The least qualified candidate ever to lurch into the public spotlight and shit on Gold Star moms while cradling [Vladimir] Putin’s sweaty sack.”
While Trump was the centerpiece of a group of the Republican National Convention’s parade of “hemorrhoidal has-beens,” Bee argued, Clinton and the Democrats managed to one-up the GOP in terms of presenting an upbeat, patriotic message leading up to Clinton’s history-making nomination, which brought Bee to tears.
“I’m not crying,” she insisted. “I just have tears coming out of my wherever.”
