Nevada Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle told Fox News yesterday that the media should be her friend.
“We needed to have the press be our friend,” Angle told Carl Cameron, prompting Cameron to interject and say her comment sounds “na?ve.”
“Well, no. We wanted them to ask the questions we want to answer so that they report the news the way we want it to be reported,” said Angle. She added that she wants to be able to tell people to send money to her website.
The comments prompted derision from both the right and the left.
