Political Candidate Describes Media Strategy: Only Ask Me Questions I Want to Answer

Cameron: “Wait a minute. Hold on a second. To be your friend…?”

Angle: “Well, truly-”

Cameron: “That sounds naive.”

Angle: “Well, no. We wanted them to ask the questions we want to answer so that they report the news the way we want it to be reported.”
