(Newser) – Remember when Sharron Angle said she only wanted to talk to the media if it was a “friend”? Now we know why. At a house party this month, Angle was caught on tape bragging about how much money she could make off Fox viewers and Rush Limbaugh listeners. She says asking for campaign contributions on Limbaugh’s show, for example, netted her $236,000 in a day.

“I’m going on Bill O’Reilly. … They say, ‘Bill O’Reilly, you better watch out for that guy, he’s not necessarily a friendly.’ Doesn’t matter, his audience is friendly, and if I can get an opportunity [to advertise my website] once on his show—when I said it on Sean Hannity’s television show we made $40,000.” You can hear the audio over at the Las Vegas Sun.
