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.

Casey Anthony will get as much money as she can.. blow through it in less than a year and end up back in jail within 5 years. These kind of sick, narcissistic people can't function in our society for long. PARTY IT UP CASEY, throw on a hoochie dress and go see if you can win that "hot body contest" at the same club you partied at while Caylee was rotting in your trunk!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's what we can do to regain some sanity over this train wreck... Casey is waiting for her big "deal" to come through so she can finance her "bella vita" (beautiful life) without (heaven forbid) having to get an actual minimum wage job (like anyone else in her position).

She's saying she'll "tell her story" for a price? Well, we've heard "her story" & she threw in everything (& everyone) but the kitchen sink. The pool? Her dad? Give me a break! She had every opportunity to set the record straight & to say it in her own words if she chose to. It was ALL LIES. Who needs more details on the ridiculous, last-minute pool story?

She’ll NEVER tell the truth because the ACTUAL truth would have sealed her fate for 1st degree murder. Hence – the circus. That's why people feel this is all still such a "mystery". Well it's NOT a mystery - just her twisted inaccurate version is the mystery. It's obvious what the TRUTH is, there was just no eye witness or video camera recording the act, so the jury chose not to convict (now there’s the mystery). Wow, imagine all the other cold-blooded killers who'd be walking the streets if that was the standard of proof.

Ok, back to what we must do: IF Casey gets some kind of a deal for another serving of lies &/or irrelevant photos, we NEED to take note of each & every sponsor or advertiser even remotely associated with before, during & after such show, article, etc. We need to then send a letter to each of those sponsors/advertisers letting them know (in no uncertain terms) that we will be no longer be purchasing or considering purchasing their product/services. Then post the list & an example of your letter & encourage ALL of your friends, family & social sphere to do the same.

If sponsors/advertisers see AHEAD OF TIME that there's a ground-swell, backlash, boycott movement to really hit their reputation & bottom line where it hurts, they'll keep away from Casey Anthony like the plague.

Let Casey Anthony dangle on welfare in her self-imposed prison until the steals checks from whoever's hiding/abetting her now & she ends up right back in jail for what she's best at - LYING & STEALING. Let's just hope she never has the opportunity to add BABY KILLING back to her list.

*Please send this to everyone you know, post it wherever you can & keep bumping it to the top! We can make a difference!

Hi Curiouss!

How are you doing today? Hope that all is well with you. I have missed talking to you and to 2idiots here. But have to say that gedrast is fired up and and is right on the money with his views in many ways.

Heard the other day on TV that the state of Fla. is now going to sue Casey also to try to recuperate some of the money that was spent in searching for Caylee, the trial itself, and all the Departments that were involved in the case - as a means of paying back the taxpayers. I understand that the Sheriff's Dept. will have a different lawsuit - but it is going to be separate from the states. I really hope that they do - because it is deplorable that the taxpayers have to flip the bill for everything - and the taxpayers should be reimbursed for it.

of course nbc is not going to admit they may be offering casey some money for her interview for if they are indeed bidding like all the other networks they want to hype it up and try and make it look like they are not trying to help Casey profit from her infamy from being aguited of murder.

When I hear anything on Casey Anthony it makes me sick to my stomach, it is so sad. That she got away with murder and will be getting a huge pay out from it. Her family who defended her, knowing well that things just didn't add up, will probably get money, too. I promise I will no*****ch any network who pays her or her family, and I hope when that day comes, no one else will either (sticking to their word) because we can protest through ratings. As for people getting upset at TMZ for continuing coverage, if they are not paying someone for it, I SUPPORT them fully. I don't see them defending her, and I believe that if we let her just disappear, she will end up being able to live a life of luxury. I SAY KEEP TRACK OF HER TMZ, SO THAT WE CAN CONTINUE TO KEEP HER IN THE HEADLINES WITH NEGATIVE PRESS, MAYBE NETWORKS WILL GET THE PICTURE AND NOT TOUCH HER WITH A 10 FOOT POLE. but if I find out tmz is paying, I too, will sign off from you forever...

Faye: 12 hours ago

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.....

--------------------------------------------

WOW!!!!! Preach on Faye!

these words u said..."n all time low to offer so much money to a woman who allowed her innocent child to rot in a trash bag for months."

And that's the crux of it, isn't it. the bottom line..money to a s*** who let her little baby rot in a trash bad. Take a bow TV Networks..take an effin bow!

Price tag for Casey Anthony case near $700,000
ReutersBy Barbara Liston | Reuters – 5 hrs ago

ORLANDO, Fla (Reuters) - The Casey Anthony murder investigation and trial cost taxpayers almost $700,000, based on new tallies on Friday from the major agencies involved in the case.

Prosecutors are seeking reimbursement from Anthony, 25, who was acquitted July 5 of murdering her two-year-old daughter Caylee. Casey Anthony was convicted of four charges of lying to detectives in 2008 and leading them astray from the first day of the investigation into the fate of the missing toddler.

A hearing is scheduled for August 25 at which trial judge Belvin Perry will decide how much of the bill Anthony must pay.

Although Anthony was declared indigent for purposes of her legal fees, rumors abound of possible high-priced book deals and paid interviews that could bring the infamous single mother a small fortune.

The single largest bill was $293,123 from the Orange County Sheriff's Office, which released its figures Friday. Even that includes only costs of the criminal investigation division from the time Caylee's grandmother reported her missing to the discovery five months later of her remains.

Many other expenses could not be fairly isolated, according to an accounting by Lieutenant Paul Zambouros.

"An incredible amount of manpower was deployed and over 6,000 tips were received requiring extensive man hours," Zambouros wrote in his report.

Also reported Friday was the $186,903 expended by the court clerk to select a jury, and to house and feed the 12 jurors and five alternate jurors sequestered throughout the nearly seven-week trial.

The prosecutor's office previously reported expenses of $91,000 on the case. And, after Anthony was declared indigent for legal fees, taxpayers paid $119,000 for defense expenses requested by her lawyer, according to the state Justice Administrative Commission.

The whereabouts of Anthony, released from jail on July 17, and details of how she is supporting herself are not publicly known.

Caylee's remains, with duct tape hanging from her skull, were found in swampy woods near the Anthony home five months after she was reported missing. All that was left of the child were bones and hair, making it impossible to scientifically determine a cause of death.

Also standing in line to collect damages from Casey Anthony is Texas EquuSearch, which mounted a $100,000 search for the toddler after Anthony misled detectives by telling them Caylee had been kidnapped by a nanny named Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez.

Casey Anthony's lawyer Jose Baez acknowledged at trial that the nanny was a figment of her imagination.

But a Central Florida woman by the name of Zenaida Fernandez-Gonzalez is suing Anthony for damages, saying her life was destroyed after Anthony inserted her name into the case.

What a country -- a lawyer lies through his teeth, frees a murderer, and makes a fortune. Good message we are sending to our children - lie and win! No wonder the USA is a cesspool!

Everyone needs to boycott NBC or any other company that wants to profit off of this killer!!!!

People need to start opening there eyes and stop buying into all of these tabloids lies and deceit!!!!

The news people will try and spin the story for Casey saying that they are just trying to show people the real story and let Casey give an interview to explain herself...
Well the fact of the matter is the little troll already had her chance to tell her story, but wait she didn't take the stand to do that, because her lawyers knew it would be the end of her.... Casey Anthony is a LIAR plain and simple and there is no interview that will explain her story.... Boycott anyone or any company that pays her for anything..

This Biotch is still alive while her daughter was slaughtered. Her attorneys claims her daughter died in the pool, yet they failed to explain why the body was found in the woods with duct tape around her. And why didn't the troll call the cops for 30 days to even say her daughter was missing or that "she died in a pool"...

I'm disgusted with Lawyers and these news companies that are just trying to make a buck on anything...

In the jail house tape - she was complaining about not being allowed to talk.

Then at the trial, she did not take the stand to talk and tell her side.

Now that she is free, she will only talk if the Price is Righ

What could she possibly have to lie about that anyone would want to hear? Everyone know that she killed her daughter, so what else is there to say?

And for any media outlet to pay this B**ch any sort of money to hear more lies is just disgraceful!
