NBC News -- We Won't Pay for Casey Anthony ... BUT

7/24/2011 8:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NBC news is apparently reacting to a TMZ story, in which we said Casey Anthony's lawyer is negotiating with the major networks, and big bucks are on the line ... because the network is saying they have not offered any payment for an INTERVIEW ... BUT, it made no mention of other ways of paying handsomely for a chat with the very famous former murder defendant.

0724-baez-mark-casey-networks

TMZ broke the story ... Anthony's lawyer, Jose Baez, was holed up at the swanky Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City, negotiating with NBC, ABC and CBS for the first sit-down.  And, as we reported, Baez was in the Hotel bar Thursday night, getting tips from high-profile lawyer Mark Geragos on how to negotiate the best deal.

NBC gave a statement to the New York Post, saying, "We've talked with Baez about getting an interview with Casey Anthony, but only under NBC News standards and conditions -- no payment, and absolutely no job offers for any member of her defense team."

Read carefully -- NBC is saying "no payment," but it refers to an "interview."  That doesn't cover paying huge money for pictures, video, etc.  That's S.O.P. in the network game -- and we're told that's one of the issues Geragos covered with Baez.

As we reported, as of Friday morning ... NBC was the frontrunner in nabbing Anthony.

so good to see that she is now able to mourn the loss of her child...oh wait, she still is not doing that! to any of you who say hook her up to a lie detector, she will be able to beat the lie detector since she is a pathological liar! it won't mean a thing. also you can bet they will not be able to ask her certain questions. s***bag baez will make sure they ask her what he wants to be made public. it will all be just bs and infuriate people more! they will never get anything out of her but lies.

Looks like the networks are finding ways to get around this, playing the public for fools.
To all the mothers and fathers, and anyone with a sense of decenty out there, lets not loose sight that its the public that can take away any perceived power this woman may have and keep her from profitting. Easy as 1-2-3
DON*****ch
BOYCOTT the advertisers
Use social media to spread the word

What happened to this little girl is horrific, may she rest with the angels. None of us will ever know what really happened. BUT, any mother who does not report her child missing for 30 days must be INSANE.
It begs the question, why isnt "mommie dearest" locked up in an insane asylum for this, instead of being out there peddling her "story" for financial gain?
If you're sickedned by this, and it seems the majority of America is, BOYCOTT!

Like many, . . . I just don't understand the whole "taking advice from Geragos" angle. That man's track record is far less than stellar. High profile and well known? SURE. Effective? NOT SO MUCH. Winona Ryder got royally hosed when one considers what she actually did (compare to Lindsey), even though it may have been the most helpful thing for her at the time. What help did Geragos offer Scott Peterson (who got exactly what he deserved)? And, Geragos ran like a frightened little puppy with his tail between his legs when he knew that MJ's case was beyond his capability (and even added to Tom Mesereau looking more effective than usual). If anything, maybe Geragos should be asking Jose Baez what it actually feels like to "win" a high profile case and judgement.

Just my opinion, of course . . .

Who would believe anything that either one of these liars have to say she is a proven liar and he is a s***bag lawyer it is lawyers like him that give lawyers a bad name...The should both count themselves lucky that the jury was brain dead and just go away I don't ever want to hear of either one of them again and I am sure the rest of the world feels the same....Where do you get e-mails for tv stations????/

NBC is my favorite network. I watch the evening news with Brian Williams and the local news on NBC as well. I really don't want to have to boycott them...but I most certainly will if they give one penny to that lying, murdering, psychopathic skank or any of her morally "challenged" legal team.

I can't find contact info for anyone at NBC. All my emails have been returned. Please don't forget that COMCAST now owns NBC, and they should be made aware of how we feel. Casey Anthony is a convicted liar at the least, and a callous baby killer at worst. Why would anyone believe a word she would say.

The only question that needs to be answered is did NBC (Nothing But C-nts) pay Tw-tmom's Mouthpiece travel and hotel in New York. If so each and every person Working for NBC should be Boycotted and treated with the utter contempt they have for Justice for Casey, the Baez defined SL-T should be hounded until she is gone.

@Mark--

First off, it never, ever said Anthony was in NEW YORK. So, please, try again. Secondly, don't you think it's a little harsh to call for a boycott and basically a lynch mob for EVERYONE working at NBC? So...the janitor? He should be egged, too? Maybe we should kick him out of his apartment and rob his family too.

Unemployed need $$$    

No One should give that woman, her defense team or anyone connected to this trial and money, she should be held accountable to all the people who helped to search for her dead daughter, court costs and any other civil suits pending out of this fiasco,we need to leave the magazines on the racks DON'T BUY THEM PEOPLE, she is an admitted LIAR and a book would be no different anything out of her mouth or anyone connected to her believes her lies while a three year old girl rotted away in a swamp, Baez should be dis-barred from practicing law anywhere in the US and Casey is not welcome anywhere, she is the most hated woman on the planet she is evil and probably Fu@King Baez anyway he would be the only one who would have the guts to touch her....BOYCOTT EVERYTHING CASEY ANTHONY AND HER LEGAL TEAM. DON'T BUY INTO HER LIES !

You know that if she does an interview, most of the information will be lies. She is a known liar, why pay someone who doesn't know how to tell the truth. I hope she rots in hell, maybe she should give tips on how to get away with murder.
