In an interview with Christian Broadcasting Network’s David Brody, Sharron Angle explained why she has been appearing for interviews almost entirely with conservative media outlets, instead of more neutral venues: She’s avoiding places that won’t let her plug for money.

David Brody: 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.

Sharron Angle: 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? Will I get a bump on my website and you can watch whenever I go on to a show like that we get an immediate bump. You can see the little spinners. People say ‘Oh, I heard that. I am going and I’m going to help Sharron out because they realize this is a national effort and that I need people from all around the nation. They may not be able to vote for me but they can certainly help.”

The TPM Poll Average gives Angle a lead of 45.9%-41.7% in the Nevada Senate race against Harry Reid.
