Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle gave a revealing interview Monday to Fox News' Carl Cameron, in which she said that her campaign wanted the press "to be our friend."

"We wanted them to ask the questions we want to answer, so that they report the news the way we want it reported."

Angle added that she would like it if the press would allow her to plug her Web site and solicit donations on the air, though it's not the first time she's said that.

Her remarks clearly left Cameron flabbergasted, and prompted Fox Nation to run the headline, "Sharron Angle too honest in latest interview."
