WE DIDN'T OFFER CASEY

A RED CENT!

7/28/2011 11:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Casey Anthony Paid Interview
NBC News tells TMZ ... it did not offer Casey Anthony any money for an interview with her.

An NBC rep tells us, "NBC News has not and will not be in a bidding war for a Casey Anthony interview.  No money has or will be offered, no licensing or other arrangements.  If we were to conduct an interview it would be under our standards."

The rep confirms ... NBC did indeed foot the bill for Jose Baez' suite at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City last week.  As we reported, Baez met with famed celeb lawyer Mark Geragos last Thursday in the hotel bar, discussing negotiating strategy and talking about the "big price tag" for the interview.

And sources connected with ABC insist there was indeed a bidding war between the networks.

ABC now says it will no longer pay for photos and videos connected with interviews.

You obviously care and you are still giving her attention with your post. So why are you telling people to stop when you cant?

Baez and Casey got lucky with the verdict. Not guilty is not the same as innocent.

Casey Anthony killed her daughter, just really couldn't proove it.

for god's sake, the woman is very likely a baby killer. the not guilty verdict has no bearing on whether or not she killed Caylee. she is a depraved disgusting individual, why would anyone consider paying her for anything. 6 months, 6 years or 60 years of therapy cannot cure what is wrong with her. it is absolutely sick and disgusting to consider giving her one cent for a picture or to hear lies coming out of her mouth. this is just my humble opinion.

Actually both her and Bozo are probably fearful she trips up and leaks out some secrets. The Networks want to ask HARD BALL questions they want some answers. They will NEVER let the TRUTH be known. Guess WHY? YEP! she is guilty as sin.

Uh sure we believe you NBC (rolling eyes). More likely they'll foot the bill for a secure apartment or "counseling" or the like to get around the "we didn't pay for the interview" line.

Harvey, I'm just concerned do you not have any of your staff in Fla looking for Casey Anthony. Now you guys are able to find "actual rich celebrities" and no one is able to find this broke ass acquitted criminal why is that? It would be hilarious if TMZ busted her out & didn't have to pay a dime to do it.

I will boycott any media outlet if they pay Casey Anthony even one penny, matter of fact, I probably would boycott anyone who interviews her even if it is free. She is a liar and a child killer, who could believe her? She is s*** and we have to put our foot down with the media feeding into this. Our society is dying a slow death.

All I can say is...whoever ends up winning the bidding war to interview Casey they can have at it..and this is if she even tells or knows the real truth of anything she states.. and REALLY? We as the public will believe the crap that comes out of her mouth.. I looked at my Drivers license and YUP.. states I was not born yesterday.. The network who wins may at the time feel as if they won and "OH BOY" but it will be the after effect they will have to deal with.. as most people like me will have no respect for that network.. and it is all about "KARMA"...

ABC network paid for juror #3 for a paid trip to Disney World for herself and her family. Even though NBC has not offered money yet, for an interview they are setting the stage by paid meals and accommodations for Baez and Geragos---They are two peas in a pod

I'm honestly so sick of hearing about Casey, we all just need to ignore the fact that she even exist. No one should pay her for anything cuz she deserves NOTHING!! Let her suffer and pay for what she did!!
