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.

If any of these networks want an interview with this woman I will never watch their channels again.. I don't know how she can live with her self knowing what she did to her daughter. She isn't worth any $$$ at all. She doesn't deserve it.

This family has wasted enough of people's time and money. Tax payers, search teams, law enforcement manpower. If these MONEY HUNGRY Vulgers want FREE handouts, go seek help from the members of the jury, all of your pimp attorneys. We up-right hard working citizens will not tolerate and are not responsible in supporting you FINANCIALLY. Got it Anthony family and pimps?

Some of the sponsors for nbc, probably cbs and abc as well, boycott them if they pay, or show Casey...

There are many divisions of each network the "news division" may not pay or offer any thing but what is entertainment proposing with an interview caveat?? Sorry just can't accept upper management not looking at all angles.

The longer she holds out, the more the public loses interest and thus the lower her asking price falls.

And she's totally soul-less. First she goes off to wet-t-shirt contests with her daughter's body rotting in her car, bar-hopping for men to use and getting tattooed when her daughter's body is rotting in a field, and now she celebrates her freedom not with reflection even if her daughyter's death was an accident but with whoring herself out to the highest bigger (save for the one that offered her $1million for a lie detector test).

Thank God. It would be a mistake on the part of any network to offer this woman any compensation. They're doing her a favor alone, if they even air any video/audio of an interview. She will simply deny and fabricate, as her defense team did in the trial. Her words are worth nothing, and are often LIES. As we all witnessed. I personally, will no longer be a viewer of any network accommodating her. And I know MANY more who concur.

1719 Ocean Front Walk, Santa Monica, California for all those who are looking my buddy is a realtor says that it is a shorts term rental. I had to take him to strip club and get him drunk to get it but I knew the info was there. So all you people out there here's your chance. Its a three month rental. Good luck! Happy Hunting!

The real irony here is that at one point shortly before Caylee was murdered Cindy's co-workers convinced her to seek professional help after Cindy expressed being at her wits end with Casey and all of her antics...the stealing, the lying, the lack of interest in raising her own daughter, and what does the Psychiatrist tell Cindy to do after evaluating Casey... tell her to leave your home , it's time she support herself and tells Cindy to seek sole custody of Caylee! Now ask yourself the question that most people will have missed here! What did that Psychiatrist see in Casey that caused him to make such a statement to Cindy! ...Chilling isn't it! And Cindy never followed through because like the rest of the Anthony family she was afraid of Casey!

The Casey Anthony case has proved two things:
First, if you get the sleaziest lawyer, pay a sleazy jury consultant and spend a lot of money it IS possible to find the 12 STUPIDEST PEOPLE IN AN ENTIRE STATE, baffle them with bulls**t and convince them that you are not guilty.
Second, there is always a possibility of pedalling slime to the lowest common denominator of our society. Anyone who pays any amount, no matter how small, to Casey Anthony for an interview or a book is just as guilty as she is.

She had her opportunity to speak 3 yrs. worth of time. Drowning accidents happen daily and never hidden. Intentional one's DO NOT get reported they are covered up by LIES. Guilty as SIN no doubt about it.

Any interview provided by CA will be filled with roundabout hints and new found lies--if she wanted to tell her story, she should have done it on the witness stand. As for NBC, I'm sure they (or whoever lands this interview) will pay her somehow. Maybe they will pay her agent, Mr Baez--trust me, there will be some backdoor way of getting her the cash. As for the interview itself, I will no*****ch. God help the sponsors that choose to run ads during this televised drama...I'm sure their business will take a hit. One thing's for sure, it won't be Gerber, Huggies or the like.

Caylee Anthony didn't drown. That was a Baez/Casey Wet Dream.
Casey killed her child, Caylee.
And if she needs to make money, she has experience on a stripper pole. Tips would be good until her Double D's started scraping the floor.
