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 think those of us to are appalled by the injustice of her acquittal in the death of her child should start a grass-roots campaign to end, or at least limit her profiting from the child's death. I propose, and I intend to, refuse to watch anything on the network which does her interview. I want all the advertisers on that day to know that the ads they are paying for that day will be wasted money. The networks are in the business of making money, while I want to take the incentive away from the network and having that murdering bit** profit from the injustice.

We need to BOYCOTT anyone that signs a deal with Casey Anthony, if its a network we need to BOYCOTT THEIR BIG ADVERTISERS. This will get the networks attention.

Enough already, I am so tired of this story. Let's respect then jury's decision and remember that this could have been our family member. How would you have wanted the jury to debate your family member?

this is all a government conspiracy anyways. george bush and the secret masons are trying to pry into the people's brains and force thoughts into their heads. that is why 9-11 was a planned white house event. did you ever see the film of the building collapsing? those were planned detonations. the christian white is behind all of this world domination stuff.

dont push the angry people to boycott stations,products,etc..because it will be a huge financial loss for any station that pays ms. skankthony or anyone associated with her a single red cent..thats a promise.

Good glad to hear she won't be getting a red cent. All she would do is lie, anyway.

And all you sad, middle-aged bozo-losers drooling over this baby killer get a life. You must be hard up to get laid. I guess you find Gollum attractive, too. She's his female nemesis.
