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.

My guess would be these Networks insist on doing an interview on their terms, meaning no soft ball questions. They likely want to drill her super hard, like Ashton would have done on the witness stand. Bozo is AFRAID for Casey to speak , something may come out about HIM. Bozo wants it all on his terms and using the excuse Casey wants therapy but in reality she is scared to death to be questioned. He's attempting to soften her image and create sympathy. Guess what BOZO, your stradegy is going BLOW up in your miserable looking face. We the public are not as STUPID as the jury was. Now go take Casey to another country who welcome criminals and do not have a problem living amongst them.

It still stuns me that some people don't get that being found not guilty does not mean being found innocent!

the Anthony family should not see a penny from this tragedy. ALL procedings should go to missing children organizations.

I am so glad to hear this. I was going to go into serious boycotting mode if they had an interview with her. I just cannot stand the idea of her profiteering from killing her sweet baby and then partying it up in a jet with her new found 'friends' (aka lawyers making money off her infamy). The whole thing is disgusting.

The networks are pulling a fast one....the network that loses that the bid, will profess to take the high road. The Network that actually interviews the murderer of her child..will profess that it is not paying her one red cent for the interview. Pull the other leg.....They will pay handsomely, and spin a yarn.. that is the purpose of a legal loophole....
C.Ant will deferr her interview for Therapy ..And Pigs will fly. C.Ant has swilled down her Corona....... was that before or after her thank you to her lawyer......C.Ant will deferrr nothing to money...she needs,and lusts after it..and so does Baez. Selling bikinis just didn,t cut it....Unless!!.. he can sell a photo of C.Ant.....in a bikini.. Well if all else fails...return to the familiar.....

Lies, lies, lies - So no cash or check was offered by paying for licensing, pictures and other garbage is the same thing. Stop Lying - you should be ashamed. Ask Terry Moran what lying - he'll know.

I think it's disgusting people are making money on this poor murdered child..there is no honor anymore..Casey should be behind bars, if NBC, ABC or any other network gives ANY money to anyone connected with this killer I will no longer watch anything related to their programming and I will encourage all my family members to do the same SHAME ON YOU!

TMZ, ABC, CBS,NBC ..tell you what , if you want to pay for interviews , why not interview the Guy'S who wrote and sang "CAYLEE"S SONG" the money goes for a good cause that is made off of it..this is not about Casey this is about a innocent little baby that her mother snuffed her life out for her own selfish reason..so please if you want to do something good , do it for Caylee and all the Children..why don't you interview these guy's see how they feel about the verdict..you would get rateings from this if that's what you want..you probaly wont do it because you like the trash talk better..
