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

Roanoke Times, 12-8-2012, Pg6: Unemployment rate falls to 4-year low. 146,000 jobs were “added”.
However, in fine print at end of article the unemployment rate fell because 350,000 people dropped out of the workforce.
Who writes these ridiculous, slanted, biased, and misleading headlines for the Roanoke Times?
Roanoke Times, 12-9-2012, Pg 6: Jobs report pales to fiscal cliff.
Friday improved numbers barely got a mention from the White House -- Of course NOT – who wants to brag about 350,000 people dropping off the looking-for-employment rolls?
Pg 1, 12: Jobless benefits could go over cliff; some 2 million people could lose their unemployment assistance, 40% of whom have been out of work for six months or more.
What’s the administration doing about the fiscal cliff?
Obama’s Treasury Secretary of the Treasury Geithner publicaly boasted that The White House is ‘Absolutely’ Willing To Go Off The Fiscal Cliff
Obama now states that he wants absolute dictatorial power to increase the budget deficit and national debt to whatever level he deems fits contrary to law and precedent.
The White House hardened its position that Congress should raise the U.S.'s borrowing limit without preconditions, adding an unpredictable new element into the high-stakes budget talks.
Obama and the media refuse to acknowledge that their proposed tax increase on the top earners will fund only 8 days of the nations spending and Obama has refused to even address the One Trillion Dollar yearly deficit or the Sixteen Trillion Dollar national debt.
Without any limit on borrowing and no intent to constrain spending Obama and associates will simply do what they've been doing, adding One Trillion Dollars of debt per year to our children's burden of over 20 Trillion Dollars.
A graphic reflecting how this policy works:
President Obama is planning to take a nice 21 day Hawaii vacation from December 17 through January 6th, 2013.
Apparently he’s not too worried about the fiscal cliff, so why should others?
Rolling down hill like a snowball headed for hell:
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure.
It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies.
Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally.
Leadership means that, 'the buck stops here.'
Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren.
America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership.
Americans deserve better."
Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006
Talk about hypocrisy!
