GOP Candidate Sharron Angle Doesn't Understand Role of the Press

Republican and Tea Party Candidate Sharron Angle doesn't understand the role of the press. In an interview with Fox News' Carl Cameron, Sharron Angle who's running for the U.S. Senate from Nevada believes the role of the press is to ask questions that the candidate wants to answer and to allow her to raise funds for her campaign. Basically, she wants the press to be her propaganda wing. Um, Sharron, the primary role of the press is to seek the truth.

Folks, this is the face of the new Republican and Tea Party movement. Here's the story from Media Matters and below is the excerpt of the interview. Note Cameron's incredulous response to Angle.
