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.

I agree with any poster that lobbies us all not to support any entity that enriches Casey Anthony. I find it interesting that thousands of individuals immediately threaten to boycott any organization seeking to enrich Casey and also profit themselves from the horrible murder of an innocent 2 year old. Every network has backed off and now Larry Flint makes his push for profit.

While it seems that Flint could not sink any lower than to be the one paying the most money, he is really insulting all men who appreciate beautiful women. In fact, he may be insulting beautiful women who don't mind displaying their beautiful bodies to men who appreciate them. Their bios do not include murdering children. So why are they paid way less?

It's insulting to me that I care more about seeing Casey "in her birthday "suit" than I do about being someone who believes she should not be rewarded financially for the most awful murder in recent memory. She literally killed her daughter so she could party and now Flint seeks to make money by betting that most men share his lack of character and sense of justice.

You're wrong Larry. The readership of your magazine will greatly diminish and your advertisers will lose more business than they can imagine. Newsstands that sell you trash will come under so much attack that your issues will no longer be sold. That's a guarantee.
You just have no idea how many millions of real men now view you as even more despicable than Jose Baez.

Anyone who is so ignorant, stupid, naive to believe that Larry Flint is persuing Casey Anthony to pose nude for his magazine must have fallen off the infamous "turnip truck."

This man is out for money..I absolutely do not believe anyone contacted him about her beauty, air brushing and having her pose nude on the front page of his magazine..

Flint is an outright liar..I find it hard to believe that people would be contacting him and advising him of the money he could make by having Casey nude in his magazine.

Flint, you are a liar..At least have the BB.lls to admit you are looking for the almighty dollar!

Baez meeting with Mark Geragos to get advice? That is almost like "the blind leading the blind." I wouldn't meet with Mark Geragos for advice, or hire him as an attorney if he guaranteed me ten million dollars!! i.e. Wasn't he Michael Jackson's attorney for awhile and fired..Wasn't he Scott Peterson's attorney for awhile and fired. and not to forget his defense/flopping defense of Winona Ryder..

ABC, NBC, etc. are all full of you know what..Ratings is ther $$$$$'s..and they will stop or prostitute themselves at nothing to get an interview with Casey Anthony..

Casey Anthony murdered her daughter Caylee Marie Anthony..It was the ignorant Jurors who found her innocent..

One of the stupid, ignorant statements Juror said during an interview was "you couldn't convict someone of murder if you didn't know how they were murdered"? Other ridiculous, ignorant statements as well..

This Jury didn't understand what and how powerful "cir****tantial" evidence is..i.e. Scott Peterson who was convicted of murdering his pregnant wife Lacy..he bones washed a shore on SF Bay, followed buy a beautiful 8 month old baby..Convicted on his strange behavior after his wife went missing and when she was found..Called "cir****tantial evidence" and he is in death row!!

Casey Anthony ordered back to Orlando in check fraud caseBy the CNN Wire StaffAugust 1, 2011 3:19 p.m. EDT
Casey Anthony, who was acquitted in her daughter's death, is released from jail in Orlando on July 17.STORY HIGHLIGHTS
Amended court do***ents say Casey Anthony should report within 72 hours
She was sentenced to probation in 2010 after pleading guilty to check fraud
There was an apparent misunderstanding about when the probation was to be served
Anthony's defense attorneys may challenge the move
Check out CNN affiliate WESH-TV in Orlando for more information.

(CNN) -- A Florida judge on Monday signed amended court do***ents mandating that Casey Anthony return to Orlando to serve a year of probation stemming from her check fraud conviction.

"From my reading of this, she should be reporting to probation in Orlando probably within 72 hours," Orange County Circuit Judge Stan Strickland said in signing the do***ents, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

The action came after an apparent misunderstanding in the case.

Anthony pleaded guilty in January 2010 to felony check fraud charges, admitting she stole a checkbook from her friend Amy Huizenga and wrote five checks totaling $644.25. At the time, defense attorney Jose Baez asked that Anthony be given credit for time served and be placed on probation.

Strickland apparently intended for the supervised probation to begin after Anthony's release from custody, said Randy Means, spokesman for the Orange County state attorney's office. But the order signed by Strickland at the time seemed to indicate it was to run while Anthony was in custody awaiting trial on murder charges in the 2008 death of her daughter, Caylee.

Anthony jurors to be named in October

A jury acquitted Anthony of charges in Caylee's death. The 25-year-old Orlando woman was released from jail July 17. Her whereabouts since then have been unknown.

Means said prosecutors were surprised to receive a letter from the probation office indicating Anthony's probation was completed.

He said there was a miscommunication between what Strickland said at the sentencing and what the court clerk understood. The clerk thought the probation and Anthony's time in custody were to run concurrently.

The do***ents were amended Monday to add the words "upon release" to Anthony's sentencing do***ents, the Sentinel said.

Orange County prosecutors will not take a position on whether Anthony should serve probation, Means said, adding the issue is between Strickland, Orange County Chief Judge Belvin Perry Jr. -- who presided over Anthony's murder trial -- the probation department and the clerk's office.

"We don't think we have jurisdiction. The court is the sentencer, and if they think it (sentencing) was not followed, they can do something," Means said. "Our position is to leave it up to the court."

A Department of Corrections spokeswoman told CNN affiliate WESH-TV in Orlando that Anthony must report to Orange County within 72 hours. "We are moving forward to make sure she is following the judge's orders," Gretl Plessinger said.

Anthony's attorneys may challenge the move and claim their client should not have to serve probation because she already did while in custody, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Means said the defense would have a strong argument to have the amended sentencing order declared invalid on grounds of double jeopardy. It would be unconstitutional to have Anthony serve another year of probation if technically she already served it while in jail, he said.

Perry has indicated he wants to meet with officials from the Department of Corrections to go over what happened and "make corrections." Means said he does not know what that means, and knew of no pending hearings regarding the issue.

Strickland recused himself from the Anthony case in April 2010 after the defense alleged he was biased against her. At Anthony's sentencing on the check fraud charges, she was ordered to have no contact with Huizenga, who testified against her during her murder trial.

At her sentencing for the check fraud charges last year, Anthony said, "I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm sorry for what I did. I take complete and full responsibility for my actions, and I'd like to apologize to Amy. I wish I'd been a better friend."

Every time her name comes up I hit mute or change channel. It seems many do likewise. Many of us hope she receives same treatment as OJ. No one wanted interviews,books, movies or ANYTHING from him. Same goes for her. We will devote all energy to everything & anything that is NOT her. Majority believe her just as guilty as he was.

Alemanno: "We light the Colosseum"
The girl, 28, was taken by Romania's homeless in an electrical room: there, the aggression
The mayor lights the amphitheater as a sign of solidarity
ROME - He was looking for a hotel to continue his stay in Rome. And she trusted a young Rumanian, which looks like a good boy, known shortly before the stalls of Piazza della Repubblica. So, speaking in English, the young, 30 year old homeless in Rome, managed to convince a California girl, originally from the Philippines, to follow him in search of a hotel.


The trap door that opens the electrical room where he lived and where did the Rumanian rape (Proto)
THE ELECTRIC CAR - But it was only a trap: the Rumanian, IPJ, has instead brought the young, aged 28, in a ravine basement of Villa Borghese, where the intricacies of a substation had obtained a room where there was a mattress and a few ornaments. There the thirties had abused the victim, covered her mouth with one hand to prevent her from shouting for help. The rape occurred on the afternoon of Tuesday. A few hours later, still in the closet, the agents of the Interior Ministry police, directed by Carmine Belfiore, surprised the sleeping Romania on the same mattress and arrested him.
THE ESCAPE - The young American, medicated in the hospital for neck injury, was able to get away from the underground and raise the alarm after a security guard turned to Flaminio Metro station. With the help of an interpreter at the U.S. embassy has told investigators the young nightmarish hours spent in the company of Romania, now in Regina Coeli. The 28-year old, on vacation for a few days in the capital, living in Spain where he studied to become a kindergarten teacher.
"ROME DANGEROUS FOR WOMEN" - Immediate reactions to the nth sexual violence.

"Despite the claims on the safety and the iron fist is unlikely ads - added Congresswoman Ileana Argentin the Democratic Party - the Capital continues to be the prey of raids against women. And Monica and Gemma Cirinnà Azuni, and President Elected Vice President of the Commission of the City of Rome, Alemanno, the mayor proposed, "a sign of closeness to the victim and reporting of this horrible crime to light the Colosseum: it will be the first time since it was voted for the motion of the Committee of women elected to undertake the administration Capitoline to illuminate the Coliseum whenever there is a violence against women. "
ALEMANNO: LIGHT THE COLOSSEUM - you do not pray to the mayor of Rome. Shortly after the request Cirinnà and Azumi, comes the note: "Unfortunately, tonight (Thursday, ed) the Colosseum will be lit to remember the violence suffered by American tourists a few days ago. The decision taken last November by the Capitoline aims to shed light on cases of abuse against women and prevent such incidents remain in the shadows. It is a symbolic gesture, but as also mentioned by the directors and Cirinnà Azuni, important. "
