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.

Amen to that. One network down how many to go. Hopefully no one will pay.

She is NEVER going to do an interview without getting paid.. I can just imagine her spending this money in her jail cell waiting to be released only to find out no one wants anything to do with her.. Basically the public feels the same away about her as she felt towards her daughter!

The bottom line is the only way she could get anywhere in life was through her daughters death . Millions of dollars wont escape that fact . She can bank on a dead child but she will continue to stink of lies and idiocy . You dont mean anything when you throw your own child in a filthy swamp . It's all meaningless window dressing and shes a pathetic and lazy excuse of a woman .

I don't believe NBC. The message their sending 20-somethings in America is that to make a million, act like a slut, kill your kid, and betray your parents. Nice!

Why does TMZ keep posting about this baby killer? They're making her more famous than the trial. ENOUGH ALREADY

Instead of paying 1 million to a lying skank who murdered her child, give it to charity. Who in their right mind would pay for an interview where the person is nothing but a pathological liar? I would only have listened to her had she taken the stand. Let her fade into obscurity. I hope her dead child haunts her and the 12 incompetent jurors that were as intelligent as a bag of hammers.

Anyone who's stupid enough to throw away big bucks for a story packed full of lies isn't going to prosper from such an investment. It's beyond high risk. Who wants to listen? For no cost to anyone, everything anyone wants to know about this monster is on the net. What's another hour long program going to reveal? NOTHING! A baby killer is a baby killer is a baby killer.

The sinister smile on its face it creepy as h*ll. That's the look of evil after it's gotten away with killing the only thing beautiful about it. This photo makes me shudder.

Lemme see now, small child dies under mighty strange cir****tances; NBC pulls in a bundle hyping its coverage of the captive accused, courtesy of the taxpayer's dollar in providing the stage and drama of a trial. Bottom line: NBC gets to rake in the advertising bucks; taxpayer picks up the tab for staging the drama creating them.
Now, lez see the new a-rangements ... in an even stranger turn of events, the accused is set free and consumers' interest in the issue skyrockets. NBC, however, now stands on principle and declines to pay for interview. So, new bottomline: When NBC does not have to share its advertising rake, it "serves the public" by hyping a tragedy. However, now that NBC might have to share the rake (openly) with other(s), "principle" intervenes and there is no interview. So solly 'bout that, consumers.
Seems to me that the former defendant and the newly pious press deserve each other. And then some.

Casey Anthony is a heartless bitch. I do not care what she has to say. She will NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER, be able to defend her actions before, during or after this trial. She can say nothing I want to hear. Be gone to the rock you should be living under...
