NV Sen: Angle Says She Avoids Legit Media Because They Won’t Let Her Shill for Donations

Via Daily Dish, David Brody, a reporter for Pat Robertson’s Christianist television network, asked Nevada tea-bagger senate candidate Sharron Angle why she only did interviews on Fox and other right-wing propaganda outlets:

DAVID BRODY: I just want to understand. You’re saying that you’re not willing to play this mainstream media “gotcha” game basically? Is that what you’re saying?

SHARRON ANGLE: No. There’s no earnings for me there. We’re looking at how can we best benefit from the media. We get so many requests. I do sometimes 7 interviews a day so it’s not like we’re running from the media. It’s just that we’re earning with that media.

DB: Not to harp on the point but when you’re on Fox News or talking to more conservative outlets but maybe not going on “Meet the Press” or a “This Week”, those type of news shows, then the perception and the narrative starts to be like you are avoiding those mainstream media outlets.

SA: Well, in that audience will they let me say, “I need $25 dollars from a million people, go to Sharron Angle.com, send money?” Will they let me say that?
