Ryan Grim: "You Almost Have To Feel Sorry For Sharron Angle" (VIDEO)

Huffington Post political reporter Ryan Grim went on MSNBC's Hardball this evening to discuss Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle, specifically a recent interview with Fox News's Carl Cameron in which Angle came out and explicitly stated that she wants the press to "ask the questions we want to answer, so that they report the news the way we want it to be reported."

"You almost have to feel sorry for Sharron Angle," Grim began, "because she's been treated with kid gloves by the conservative media for so long that you can almost forgive her for thinking that there is some kind of alliance there between these two."

Grim went on:

We should be applauding her for her honesty, because this is very clearly exactly what she thinks. She thinks that Fox is there to help her candidacy. Can you imagine how much fun our political system would be if people were this honest all the time?
