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.

Samantha Bee last night jumped right on the recent New York City bombing, saying it’s going to take more than a dumpster bomb to scare New Yorkers who are still living through the dumpster fire that is the Donald Trump campaign.
“Do we need more proof that New Yorkers are the best?” she began. “The reason that they caught the bombing suspect is because a couple of New Yorkers saw his suitcase bomb on the sidewalk and thought, ‘Hey, free suitcase!’ threw the bomb away and made off with their new luggage!”

Turning to the mostly blase attitude of New Yorkers who seemed to take the explosion in stride, Bee went on to lecture terrorists that they are picking on the wrong city.
“Terrorists, when are you gonna learn that you can’t scare us, “she began as she showed a picture of a cockroach. “New Yorkers aren’t afraid of this and we’re not afraid of you.”
Showing a picture of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump, she continued, “Only one thing scares us, the thought of people voting for a crazy person who exploits their fear of terrorism.”

Showing the exploded dumpster she added, “New Yorkers are used to this kind of dumpster fire, please don’t use it to elect this kind of dumpster fire,” while once again showing a picture of Trump
