TMZ has more “journalistic” morals than NBC and ABC? What’s next for these network idiots Girls Gone Wild? TMZ sent an investigative team to spy on the networks that were talking to Casey Anthony’s lawyer. Her lawyer has been trying to negotiate a 1M+ price tag in exchange for an interview. Both NBC and ABC denied that they were going to directly pay Anthony for the interview, but it came out that she was still going to get the money. NBC and ABC were going to buy “video and pictures” from Anthony and get the exclusive interview.
Well TMZ ran with the story and now the networks are backing down.
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.
What’s next Joe Francis yelling at Anderson Cooper?
