NBC NEWS

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.

Let's see, even after being found not-guilty in America, you can't get a job. Well, when Jeffrey MacDonald gets paroled he'll probably fare much better. He was actually found guilty. Are all of you Casey-haters as angry at the other people who really did kill their kids. Remember a little girl in Florida named Rilya Wilson who was murdered in foster care? She was a poor black child. Where are the flowers and signs for her? Did any of you who HLN put on t.v. remember her name?! She didn't have a mother who taught her to count to 20 in Spanish or use flash cards to teach her. That was Caylee's mother who did that. Casey Anthony. You expect me to believe that she put chloroform in the computer 84 times...no that was PROVEN FALSE. Just like the zanny equals xanax theory was PROVEN FALSE. So many people think they know the case. NO THE JURORS WERE THE ONES WHO HEARD THE CASE. Stop being haters. Let Caylee rest in peace. It's the Media who is making the money off a dead child.

Why would NBC have paid for dirtbags suite at the Mandarin if they were not in some kind of negotiations with him. If you are not paying for the interview, you say that, end of story. if you are negotiating then someone is getting something. Are the network bosses so thick that they think it's okay to fund/reward an individual who likely murdered her 2 1/2 year old child? Do they have no standards, ethics, decency or morality? What is happening to this country that it should take masses of people threatening boycotts to get them to do the right thing? It is really very frightening what our society is becoming. JMHO

(CNN) -- If Larry Flynt has his way, Casey Anthony could reintroduce herself -- nude -- to America on the pages of Hustler magazine, and make well over $500,000 in the process.

TMZ, I THOUGHT THIS SITE WAS FOR CELEBRITIES WHICH CASEY ANTHONY IS NOT. SO, WHY ARE YOU CONTINUEING TO REPORT ON HER HERE AS IF SHE IS? COULD IT BE THAT YOU ARE IN TIGHT WITH THE DEFENSE HARVEY? NO BODY INCLUDING THE REAL CELEBRITIES WANT TO READ ABOUT THIS NOBODY ON THIS SITE AT ALL. YOU PEOPLE ARE DOING NOTHING BUT GLORIFYING A POS WHO KILLED HER CHILD. CAYLEE WAS A TWO YEAR OLD LITTLE GIRL AND HER LIFE WAS TAKEN BEFORE IT GOT STARTED. SHE IS THE VICTIM HERE AND NOT CASEY AS SO MANY LIKE YOU SEEM TO BE MAKING HER OUT TO BE A VICTIM. SHAME ON YOU AND ALL OF THE REST. DO YOU NEED READERS THAT BAD?

wow    

Realistically, Casey Anthony will get paid, boycott or not. They're ways to do things and the money can be available without anyone knowing. If she takes Hustler up on the offer, the rest will follow.
As for the lawsuits against her, bankruptcy is an option. She's got nothing to lose and a legal team to advise her. You win some you lose some.

The only thing I would pay to see is Casey being dragged thru the streets in chains while people throw garbage at her and urinate in her eyes.

the sickest part is that if she ever had another baby,which she probably will, she would do the exactly same thing.

Don't you see a pattern here?

Porn guy offers Casey $1,000,000. Next day he says porn industry does not want Casey Anthony.

Shady producer offers her $1,000,000 for interview. Next day says she is too "radioactive" for broadcast.

Rumors that networks are in bidding war for Casey interview. Next day ABC says they will cease paying for interviews and NBC says won't offer her "one red cent."

Don't you get it? Casey has been TURNING THEM ALL DOWN.

They are all, including the porn guy, too ashamed to admit that the s*** of the earth had more dignity than they did. So they all claim that it is THEY who don't want HER.

Trust me..they are all liars..there is no such thing as a "free lunch." AND "ole" murderer Casey or Baez (whom I think is her lover) is going to give any interview unles the pay if close to two million, maybe more..

How sad the Networks are getting.. They have reached an all time low to offer so much money to a woman who allowed her innocent child to rot in a trash bag for months. Both she and her family only goal now is to make money from Caylee's death.. That's a fact. Networks beware, you will see such a fury if you endorse a child killer.. We will not allow this travesty to occur. A child is innocent, their death is not an income. A child has suffered, a child is dead, a child was left to rot in a garbage bag. Enough ALL networks, ENOUGH!! We are YOUR viewers and we will NOT allow this insult to a child who WAS murdered... This entire family are nothing but liars, how desperate have you ALL become ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, AND ALL the talk shows, and other outlets. Silence these low life's, let them crawl in the swamp and let them rot the way Caylee did.. SHE had NO choice what happened to her. A child cannot defend themselves, we the adults are suppose to protect them, not MURDER!!!! SAY NO RASCAL FLATTS to the ANTHONY"S request to meet you all. Casey said NO to CAYLEE when she stuffed her in a GARBAGE BAG,write about that.....Tell the world what remained of her.....

Marge -

I have read your comments carefully and I get where you're coming from. I would respectfully add, however, that even the jurors were unhappy with the verdict they had to give based solely on what evidence they heard in court. There were some things we the public viewed that was denied admission during the trial. And yet, despite not seeing some of the inflammatory evidence, the jury *still* didn't like letting her go.

Aye, she was found not guilty of murder and manslaughter, she was convicted on four counts of lying to the authorities. She is now a free woman. So? Are we now suppose to welcome her back into society with a big smile and open checkbook? I don't bloody think so.

If nothing else, her little games and big lies wasted resources that could have been used to help other folks, honest people worried about a missing loved one. Or perhaps the police involved in trying to track down the kidnapping nanny could have better spent their time keeping drug dealers away from school children.

TMZ is desperate! That's all I can think of. Casey Anthony has the most demonic look in her eyes. It is actually painful to even look at her. I AGREE WITH EARLIER POSTS. TMZ........STOP WITH THE POSTING OF ANYTHING ABOUT THE "CHILD KILLER"! MOVE ON. SHE'S DEMONIC AND YESTERDAY'S NEWS! EVERYONE HATES HER!
