NBC Denies Offering Megabucks For Casey Anthony Sit-Down

by at . Comments

NBC is firing back at reports that it is involved in a major bidding war for Casey Anthony - and leading the pack no less - denying that it ever offered money.

An NBC rep says:

"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."

Casey Anthony on Trial

The network doesn't deny interest in landing a sit-down with Anthony. In fact, the rep confirms NBC paid for Jose Baez's hotel in NYC last week.

Baez, Casey's attorney, was believed to be holed up and negotiating for interviews on her behalf, and talking about a "big price tag" for them.

Sources connected with ABC insist there was indeed a bidding war between all three major networks for Anthony, and even Anthony's parents.

While networks don't pay for interviews, technically, they frequently get around this by licensing photos and videos - such as this alleged one Casey Anthony drinking - at whatever price they want, effectively the exact same thing.

Nobody is interested in hearing more lies. I consider Baez a liar as well. I have no respect for him. I wish people would quit paying to hear him talk. WE DON'T CARE. I did watch the interview that Dorothy did where she couldnt answer if she would let casey babysit her kids. She said she didn't think casey knew how caylee got into the woods. GIVE ME A BREAK. They said caylee drowned. Why wouldnt she know what supposedly happened....LIARS........all of them. Will not watch any of the networks anymore if i hear they are paying any of them.

Enough : The night of the first interview
WE ALL SHUT OFF OUR TV.
We will not miss any of the truth, there will only be more lies.
Baez will be there to have her not answer any tough questions.
He is now her pimp. He may end up her husband.
Silence for Caylee, the night of the interview.
