Sharron Angle: Fox News is part of my new $1 million fundraising "push"

In an email sent this afternoon, Nevada Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle wrote that she will appear on Fox News' Hannity as "part of our push" to raise $1 million online before the end of September. From her email:

Today I am asking you to help me give Harry Reid a "September to Remember". I am launching an unprecedented online push to raise $1 million dollars, reach 75,000 Facebook fans, and increase our Twitter followers to 6,000- all before the end of September.

As part of our push, I will be on the Sean Hannity show this at 9pm (EST)/6pm (PST) to discuss why I am the right choice to replace Tax-and-Spend Harry Reid.

While Sean Hannity's show tonight is a great way to reach voters, you can make just as much of an impact by participating in our "September to Remember" campaign.


"Watch Sean Hannity's show tonight at 9pm (EST)/6pm (PST) and if you agree with me, please spread the word through Facebook and Twitter". [emphasis in original; h/t: Jon Ralston]

Angle's view of Fox News as a fundraising outlet isn't a surprise: she previously told Fox News reporter Carl Cameron that she needed the press to be her "friend" and allow her to give out the address of her fundraising website. In July, Angle suggested that she frequently appeared on Fox News -- the home of softball Angle interviews -- because they allow her to make fundraising appeals to viewers.

On Fox, fundraising appeals for Angle don't even require her presence. Fox News contributor Dick Morris has told viewers to give money to an anti-Harry Reid group he's advising, and "be helpful" to her.
