Why Sharron Angle “Runs from the Press”

with 3 comments

As reported in The Huffington Post:

“Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle proved to be camera shy once again when she declined to take questions from reporters at a media-friendly event organized by her campaign on Wednesday.

“…As she left the press conference a local television reporter called after her: ‘Sharron, will you answer some questions really quickly.’ (Sorry, HuffPo doesn’t know how to use question marks, and I am quoting.  Comment mine.) Angle did not turn around and a member of her staff responded, ‘We’re running behind, I’m sorry.’

“’The whole point of an interview is to use it like they say, ‘earned media,’ to earn something with it,’ Angle recently told CBN’s David Brody. ‘And I’m not going to earn anything from people who are there to badger me and use my words to batter me with.’”

Why does Sharron Angle “run from the press”?

Well, let’s see.  Maybe it’s because:

1)       Most mainstream media members aren’t interested in the truth, or in portraying conservatives fairly.

2) Mainstream media members of organizations like Politico, Time, The Huffington Post, and The Washington Post would rather conspire to conceal the relationship between Barack Obama and Jeremiah Wright at a critical time in a presidential election, or conspire to portray any popular conservative as a racist (just pick one!), or wish a slow and painful death on Rush Limbaugh, or shut down Fox News, or compare Tea Partiers to Nazis, or destroy Sarah Palin. (In case you are one of those mainstream media members, and haven’t heard about this story, it can be found here, here, and here).

3)      She needs campaign contributions, and she doesn’t have the president flying to Nevada, twice, at a cost of approximately $1 million per trip in taxpayer funds, to do fundraisers for her, while the fawning media tells sunny happy stories about it.

4)       The press isn’t really interested in her views. They are interested in trapping her and making her look foolish.  See #1.

5)       Since, according to liberal media, conservatives can’t read anyway, she’s saving her breath for talk radio.

6)       Her supporters and those likely to support her don’t watch mainstream media on TV either.

7)       Her views are on her website, and have been presented on numerous radio talk shows. Read, and listen, if you dare.

8)       Don’t worry media members! You’ll get your chance before November, if you haven’t lost ALL of your audience by then.

  1. Maybe Sharron should put your excuses on her website. She can also tell people, “I’m too scared to answer questions because my answers might be used against me, but I’ll make a great senator!” or “I know my views aren’t mainstream views and if too many people find out about them, I’ll definitely never be elected!”

  2. Her views ARE mainstream. A tsunami of conservatism is sweeping this country. That’s why the liberal press is working so hard to discredit her.

    And, by the way, she appeared at this same event (the purpose of which was to sign a pledge to repeal the “death tax”, if elected) twice – once in Reno (the subject of HuffPo’s article) and once in Las Vegas, where she did take questions.

  3. Here’s a great related quote from Sara Palin, as cited at Red State (see:

    “With the shackles off, I relish my freedom to call it like I see it, while starving the media beast that was devouring the false reports about me, my staff and my loved ones,” she said….

    “…The lamestream media is no longer a cornerstone of democracy in America. They need help. They need to regain their credibility and some respect. There are some pretty sick puppies in the industry today. They really need help,” Palin said.
