Check Book Journalism: Jose Baez, Casey Anthony’s Lawyer, Publicly Acknowledged that the Money He Received from ABC News Made it able to Mount a Successful Defense
Thanks to Disney owned ABC News and check book journalism … Jose Baez says he was able to mount a successful defense.
Joe Baez, the defense attorney for Casey Anthony, finally has stated publicly what we and Blink on Crime knew all along. Jose Baez appeared on PBS’s “Frontline,” and stated how they got $200,000 from ABC for photos of Casey and Caylee, and that money was used “so we could mount a proper defense.” How special that a Disney owned company helped through “checkbook journalism” to deny justice to two year old Caylee Anthony. As reported at the Orlando Sentinel, “ABC News changed its policy, saying it would no longer license pictures or video tied to a booking.” Sorry, a little late now. Maybe you would like to apologize to Caylee Anthony?

ABC News & Disney put check book journalism above Justice for Caylee
Sick, I hope those at ABC News can live with themselves. Even Baez stated in the interview that the Casey Anthony case was an anomaly because the network paid $200K for licensing fees for the Anthony defense. So before anyone wants to use this case and the verdict as case law, it can obviously be stated if it were not for ABC News and their hideous checkbook journalism, the out come of the case might have been much, much different than a “not guilty as sin” verdict.
