Casey Anthony Lawyer Negotiates ($$$) w/ Networks

7/22/2011 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jose Baez -- Casey Anthony's lawyer -- is holed up at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City, holding court with all of the major networks -- to determine who will score the first interview with Casey -- and big bucks are involved.

Casey Anthony

Sources tell TMZ ... NBC, ABC and CBS are all competing for the first interview.  Sources connected with the negotiations tell TMZ there is a "big price tag" for the interview.  We're told the networks -- which say they don't pay for interviews -- are offering to license photos and other material and pay big bucks ... that's S.O.P. in the network game.

We're told NBC looks like the frontrunner so far, but ABC is in the game.  We're told CBS "is a distant third."  We're told NBC is paying for Baez' hotel room.

Baez spent part of the night Thursday in the Mandarin Oriental bar with famed lawyer Mark Geragos (right) -- who knows a thing or two about high-profile cases.  We're told Geragos gave Baez pointers on negotiating the deal.

I mean.. unless she is going to tell everyone what happen to her kid... lost in grocery store, drowned, what ever.. the real truth is.. its just a waste of money to the fool that pays her to lie more. The girl has not said the truth yet.

Networks are such freaking hypocrites! Shame on them.

Networks will pay the big money because they know people WILL watch. If you watch, you're part of the problem!

I'll watch, but I expect it to be a lot of nothing said.

Whatever station it becomes... I will boycott!!! That woman has nothing to say that I want to hear.

Abe Abe

I can't wait to watch Casey's interview. Whatever network gets her, I'll be watching! x

Here's what I'd give you for that interview: $0.00 It's not worth a plugged nickel to hear from that woman. Boo and bad karma to whatever Network forks over so much a dime. You can count me o-u-t out!

Shame on any network for trying to capitalize on Caylee's death! Shame on anyone who watches it. I will not purchase any newspapers, magazines, or books about Casey Anthony, nor will I watch any TV coverage of her. I didn'*****ch the trial. How did this go from being about Caylee to being about Casey? This is just f-d.

I don't care what network it ends up being, I REFUSE to watch anything this woman is on and I'll be dammed if I will support giving this woman any kind of money! We knew this was going to happen, but the only way to show them is to NO*****CH ANYTHING THIS WOMAN IS ON!!!!

All you had to do was follow the money with her arrogant lawyer s***. Of course he'll defend her and protect her after the trial...He wouldn't want to lose his golden egg.....GREEDY GREEDY GREEDY PIGS.....LAW IS WHAT IS SUFFOCATING AMERICA...

There's a book called....THE DEATH OF COMMON SENSE..HOW LAW IS SUFFOCATING AMERICA.. Look at all of the politicians..They are mostly all lawyers.

You will all tune in to watch and the networks know it. Nancy Grace must be pissed she isn't the one getting a "free" interview. You will tune in specially to criticize and yell at the screen.

Really, well, I guess the 3 years in jail waiting to get off for murder will pay big. Are there enough people with common sense out there to spread the word to boycott any money making ventures this person gets publicly involved with? If most people cooperated, this person would make no money and corperations who paid her, in the name of public curiosity, would lose money as well. Could we send a message here!?
