Casey Anthony Lawyer Negotiates ($$$) w/ Networks
7/22/2011 10:41 AM PDT by TMZ Staff
Jose Baez -- Casey Anthony's lawyer -- is holed up at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City, holding court with all of the major networks -- to determine who will score the first interview with Casey -- and big bucks are involved.
Sources tell TMZ ... NBC, ABC and CBS are all competing for the first interview. Sources connected with the negotiations tell TMZ there is a "big price tag" for the interview. We're told the networks -- which say they don't pay for interviews -- are offering to license photos and other material and pay big bucks ... that's S.O.P. in the network game.
We're told NBC looks like the frontrunner so far, but ABC is in the game. We're told CBS "is a distant third." We're told NBC is paying for Baez' hotel room.
Baez spent part of the night Thursday in the Mandarin Oriental bar with famed lawyer Mark Geragos (right) -- who knows a thing or two about high-profile cases. We're told Geragos gave Baez pointers on negotiating the deal.

I can't imagine anything she has to stay would interest me enough to watch this...
WTF? Why would her ex-lawyer give her such a huge chunk of money? It's not unheard of for an attorney to give a client released from prison a few bucks, to eat or stay or somewhere until they get back on their feet, but to give double than most people's yearly salary???NBC News pointed to California attorney Todd Macaluso, who at one point had been a member of Casey's defense team and had given her $70,000.

Maybe she gave him a stellar blow job. She used chloroform as lube?
How do we know he did that? Has he admitted it somewhere? This thing is hard to keep up with.

Do all these networks realize that no one will watch it and just wasting money? Shit people will probably boycott the network that does pay her murdering ass.
Even if she does an interview, how will anyone believe anything she says??? She lies about everything.
I am pretty sure people will watch Casey Anthony, they sure did nothing but for the past three years. HLN used the girl's death for their own gain, and the media is still going on about her. This thread lives on, I don't know why people think no one will watch these upcoming interviews.
People watched because they wanted to see her ass fry for killing that baby. Anything else is just a waste. Maybe you are right that some people will watch but just seeing the reaction of the not guilty verdict, people will go even more nutty when her interview is aired.
With Casey Anthony, people are still so outraged about the acquittal that Cheney Mason (who worked her case with Baez) is getting death threats. So, I think a network interviewing Casey Anthony, and giving her money for it, could backfire in a pretty major way.
