Sharron Angle (R-NV) who says that she has given more than 60 interviews, has been hiding from the mainstream media, she has given all but one of her interviews to the right wing media, such as Fox and right wing talk radio, the only exception was an appearance on Face to Face with Jon Ralston.
Now, Sharron Angle says that she isn’t hiding from the mainstream media, she just won’t do interviews with them because they will not pay her money to do the interviews. I guess that also means that Fox and right wing talk radio, do pay her money to come on their shows. Still sounds like she is hiding, what rational thinking politician doesn’t like free press and a chance to speak about their issues that they are campaigning on.
During an interview with David Brody of The Christian Broadcasting Network this past Tuesday, Sharron Angle went on to explain how mainstream media interviews won’t pay off for her campaign politically – or financially.
“Well I say I need a million people with $25 dollars and so that’s really been the focus of using all that earned media to earn that $25 that we need to go really and be competitive in this race and so that’s what we’ve been doing so we’re not hiding,’ she said.
Asked about the “mainstream media” outlets, Angle said: “Well, in that audience will they let me say I need $25 dollars from a million people go to Sharron Angle.com send money?”
Senator Reid’s campaign posted the following on his website yesterday:
BREAKING: Sharron Angle Abruptly Cancels Much-Anticipated Mainstream Media Interview
Following renewed criticism of her refusal to address Nevada voters via non-fringe news outlets, Angle snubs top non-partisan Nevada public affairs show
LAS VEGAS – Sharron Angle has been repeatedly criticized by journalists, commentators, and editorial boards of all stripes for refusing to address Nevada voters by speaking with mainstream media outlets and answering questions about her extreme and dangerous agenda. Yesterday, Angle faced severe criticism from the media for telling Christian Broadcasting Network host John Brody that she has no desire to do mainstream media interviews because they wouldn’t allow her to make fundraising pitches without asking tough questions about her record.
Now just this morning, Angle has abruptly cancelled a highly-promoted interview on the prominent Nevada public affairs show ‘NevadaNewsmakers.’
Angle’s campaign offered no valid explanation for her sudden no-show at today’s interview, and her whereabouts are currently unknown.
“Sharron Angle and her new DC handlers are continuing their efforts to hide her extreme and dangerous agenda from the voters of Nevada, hiding out in her underground bunker from all but the friendliest right-wing and fringe media outlets,” said Kelly Steele, spokesman for the Reid campaign. “Angle and her new handlers are acutely aware that as voters discover her plans to eliminate Social Security, abolish the Department of Education, turn Nevada into America’s nuclear waste haven, and eliminate oversight of Wall Street and big oil companies like BP, her poll numbers will continue to hemorrhage because her views are extremely far outside the mainstream.”
Sharron Angle has yet to campaigned on any issues, she has only campaigned on not being Harry Reid while at the same time pointing out how extreme she is, and she cancelled the interview yesterday with the Nevada NewsMakers. I guess they couldn’t meet her asking price, so we will have to wait to see her on Fox.
