This file is a very brief diary of some examples of the Roanoke Times slant.

No need to continue this ridiculous charade of a Presidential Election. The major media in concert with the DNC and the Obama Reelection Committee have declared the polls are overwhelming for Obama, so why spend any more time, money and energy on a done-deal?
Let’s do the Coronation before Christmas!
The Roanoke Times: 9-23-2012, Pg 1: Critical states see tidal shift to Obama
The Yahoo Signal:
The published poll ground-rules and assumptions are that voter turn-out for Obama will be greater than in the 2008 election!
‘Forward’ will be bigger and better than ‘Hope and Change”.
Apparently the pollsters have determined that the majority of Americans are pleased with our economy, employment, foreign and energy policies and the direction for more dependence on government programs with higher spending and taxes.
We’re going to vote overwhelmingly for the Greece model of governance and economics!
But didn’t we have an election between 2008 and now?
Was not the 2010 election a repudiation of Obama’s policies and leadership?
Did not the Republicans overwhelmingly take control of the Congress?
Is there any metric of economic or other policy that has improved since 2010?
Oh right – Obama personally shot Bin Laden in the head.
These so called polls are very interesting!
Who is asking whom and about what?
Perhaps we should go ahead and vote and cast and count our votes!
Perhaps the only poll that counts is on November 6th!
Some recent close-election history to ponder:
From the early days of the 2000 presidential campaign season, it was clear the race would be a tight one between Vice President Al Gore and Texas governor George W. Bush. Few, however, predicted that the contest would not only come down to the wire, but to a single state and a few hundred votes.
Only the 1960 race, in which John F. Kennedy squeaked out victory over Richard M. Nixon by just 0.1 of a percent, was closer. In fact, Kennedy's triumph wasn't official until noon the following day. And in 1976, Jimmy Carter also waited overnight to be declared the winner over Gerald Ford.
