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.

Twice this week, a CNN interview featured a flash of profanity related to Donald Trump.

On Wednesday it was Republican strategist Liz Mair, an outspoken critic of the party’s presidential nominee, voicing her displeasure with Trump during an interview with Anderson Cooper.

“His message is being a loudmouthed dick, basically,” she said. “And going out there and offending people and then engaging in an airing of grievances. That’s what he does. He doesn’t have another message.”
Mair, who is now the spokesperson for a group of Republicans backing Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson, said she lost hope that the party could rein the real estate mogul in months ago.


“Quite frankly, what I think we’re gonna continue to see throughout this campaign is, we’re gonna continue to see the Republican nominee basically acting as if he’s on a suicide mission and aiming to take the whole rest of the party down with him.”
Mair’s remark came two days after one of the network’s hosts, Fareed Zakaria, referred to Trump as a “bullshit artist” on the air.
