NBC Won't Pay For Interview

NBC News was in a bidding war for Casey Anthony's first tell-all interview. Not anymore!

NBC has finally confirmed that they won't be paying Casey Anthony $1.5 million for her first tell-all interview. In fact, they aren't going to pay her at all. The network giant confirmed Thursday that they aren't going to bid on an interview with the acquitted Tot Mom.

NBC won't pay Casey Anthony for interview

"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," a rep for the network said in a statement.

However, the rep did confirm the rumor that they paid for defense attorney Jose Baez's room at NYC's Mandarin Oriental Hotel last week while negotiations were underway.

That's not too cool, but at least they're fessing up to it.

Baez reportedly met last Thursday with another notorious defense lawyer, Mark Geragos, and talked about getting a "big price tag" for Anthony's tell-all.

So, where does it stand now? ABC is reportedly following suit and won't offer licensing fees for photos anymore. The network was widely criticized for paying one of disgraced politician Anthony Weiner's sexting friends several thousand dollars for her compromising photos of the congressman.

"We can book just about anyone based on the strength of our journalism," an ABC rep said in a statement.

So, will the newly-free Anthony get any money for interviews? Who knows at this point, though we're betting the pay-per-view idea is getting a lot of love right now.

Do you think anyone should pay for Casey Anthony's tell-all interview?

No media outlet should ever pay this baby-killer a penny for an interview. Not only should people not watch any kind of an interview that this monster gives, perhaps they should boycott any commercial sponsors of such a program (if not the network itself for allowing this woman a public forum to spew her lies and try to elicit sympathy where none is deserved).

no one should reward this babykiller in anyway----she lucked out by somehow getting aquitted(still reeling from that) let her slimly lawyers look after her they deserve her

Absolutely not. No one should pay her for the lies that are surely to spill forth from her mouth.

Kate July 28, 2011 | 9:05 PM

Not only should she NOT get paid for her story, but NOBODY should watch any interview she may give to ANY network, or any publication she may put forth. Who would believe her anyway? She is not credible. There is no justice for Caylee.

We should all be relived to know that Casey Anthony has announced that she will now spend the rest of her life searching for the "real killer." :-)

No one should get paid for her story. Her story is all lies! She was responsible for her daughter and and now her baby is dead! In my eyes, she should not have been allowed to be free. The laws should be fair she could have appealed the decision and so should the state if not pay up you cost our society "money and a precious little girl who was angel." Her grandparents are in my prayers.
