They should change the name of the show to AWKWARD! With Kelly and Michael!

Despite reports that Casey Anthony's attorney, Jose Baez, was in negotiations with ABC, CBS, and NBC to pay big bucks for an exclusive first interview with his client , all three of the top networks have shut this down as false!
A source with ABC confirms:
“The report is untrue. If there is a bidding war ABC News is not and will not be part of it.”
And CBS continues:
“CBS News is not offering and will not offer to license any materials from Casey Anthony. Not a damn nickel.”
"We've talked with Baez about getting an interview with Casey Anthony, but only under NBC News standards and conditions: no payment, and absolutely no job offers for members of her defense team."
All three of the network sources have confirmed that although they had sent bookers to meet with Baez, that was it.
And as far as we're concerned, that's already pushing it! That woman doesn't need ANYMORE exposure, let alone any kind of compensation for what she did or 'didn't do.'
