This file is a very brief diary of some examples of the Roanoke Times slant.
Comments to: email@example.com
The media is alive with nasty comments by the NOW girls disrespecting Obama relative to Hillary’s greeting of Sen. Kennedy while Obama, nearby, is clearly focused on someone else.
This photo is clear and crisp and proof certain that the NOW girls are full of heifer-dust.
Apparently the NOW girls who had no problems whatsoever with Bill’s abuse of multiple women before and during his presidency (small p) are now trying to make something nasty about an encounter that clearly is not valid!
Does the B word fit these girls? If not, what does?
Roanoke Times, 1/30/08, Pg 10 A: Clinton wins Fla. Primary but no delegates.
Yet Another RT slanted headline favoring Frau Clinton!
All the Democrat candidates took a “PLEDGE” not to participate in the Florida primary because the Florida Democrat party ignored the national party rules.
All complied with that pledge except Hillary.
Then after a total forfeiture of the game – Hillary declares: “mission accomplished”!
The only thing missing is the hanging-chads.
An appropriate headline might read:
Clinton Celebrates a Forfeiture - How Lame is That
Clinton flips and breaks pledge not to campaign in Florida
Clinton wins a no-contest contest.
Clinton says “I did not campaign with those people in Florida”
Clinton says “If you though Bill could break a vow, just watch me”
Roanoke Times, 1/27/08, Pg 1: Headline: Obama logs hefty victory in SC vote
Hefty victory? It was a tsunami! What an example of pro-Clinton slant!
Nowhere in the article did the RT state the numbers.
It was 295K to 141K!
In my math class that’s called a TWO to ONE WIN
Or: ((295 - 141)/141)x100 = 109 % WIN
And that’s not just a “hefty” victory
And this after Clinton spent massive amounts of time and money and
Bill almost lived there for a month and the Clintons paid Jessie Jackson a quarter of a million dollars as their “consultant” to secure a win.
How could SC massively reject the Clinton’s after the media had been telling us
For years that Bill was the “first Black-President”?
Maybe the Clinton’s shouldn’t have played the race card so early in the campaign.http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2008/01/new-years-race-card.html
The best outcome of this race so far is to refresh memories of how nasty and vicious the Clinton-team was and is. The media has been so busy for so long rewriting the Clinton history and legacy that many have forgotten what kind of people they really are.
And all this without Rove and the right-wing-conspirators.
As the campaign goes on -- George Bush just looks better and better!
Roanoke Times, 1/12/08, Pg A 6: Hillary Clinton proposes a $70 Billion stimulus package to perkup the economy ( and help bail out those lenders and lendees who were drunk and disorderly and took out loans they couldn’t afford ).
1/14/08, Pg A 4: Obama proposing $120 Billion to stimulate the economy even more than Hillary and to bail out even more dysfunctional lenders and lendees with your tax dollars.
It’s interesting that Hillary is now an expert on stimulus programs. During the final year when she and Bill were at the wheel they just let US go into a financial ditch that Bush had to dig out of!http://www.roanokeslant.org/ClintonRecession.jpg
The media coverage of the US economy over the past seven years is also a super example of slant and misrepresentation:
-Has any major media made it visible that we have had 52 months of continuous and uninterrupted net job growth? The historical record!
Instead of fair and balanced financial reporting the left-wing liberal media has diligently practiced a news blackout on any positive financial news.

Roanoke Times, 1/14/08, Pg A4: Clinton claims Obama adds racial tension to race.
Hillary Clinton had said King's dream of racial equality was realized only when President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1964, while Bill Clinton said Illinois Sen. Obama was telling a "fairy tale" about his opposition to the Iraq war.
Obama: "I think it offended some folks who felt that somehow diminished King's role in bringing about the Civil Rights Act,"
-Isn’t it great that with the Clinton’s we’re getting 2 for 1! What a deal!
It’s interesting that the media and neither Clinton nor Obama ever gives any mention of one of the most significant civil rights leaders of the 20th century – President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
It was Republican President Eisenhower who acted on behalf of the black students being barred from entry to the Little Rock High School, and thereby acted for all black Americans. Eisenhower was instrumental in appointing a Supreme Court Chief Judge who brought integration to the Brown vs Board of Education decision. Eisenhower then carried out the Supreme Court order that the Little Rock High School was required to admit black students.-Eisenhower nationalized the Arkansas Guard and commanded and confined them to barracks (the military equivalent of house arrest). He then sent in federal marshals and the 101st Airborne Division to establish marshal law and carry out the Court’s order.Prior to this Eisenhower had desegregated the District of Columbia, the armed forces and all military dependent schools.

Roanoke Times, 1/6/08, Humans not sole cause of rapid Arctic warming. Rapid ice melt cannot be explained as human-caused CO2.
Al Gore and his fraternity are scrambling to explain the latest data on Arctic ice melting.
The bottom line of course is that their climate models cannot model what has happened and what is happening and therefore they cannot predict the future.
The fact is that we are in a 250 year natural global warming cycle that certainly was not caused by man-made CO2 as is clearly demonstrated by long existing data that the Gore team refuses to show or acknowledge (because the debate is over!).
