The hustle is on to land the first major interview with Casey Anthony’s defense team, and it’s Barbara Walters who’s scored a sitdown with lead attorney Jose Baez for a multi-part interview. Although “first” probably goes to Fox News Channel’s Geraldo Rivera, who had an exclusive chat with Baez shortly after Anthony was found not guilty of murder in an Orlando courtroom Tuesday.
According to an ABC News release, the interview will be broadcast on “The View” on Wednesday and Thursday – and on just about every other ABC News broadcast for that matter.
Because the network is making sure to spread it around. The colorful, passionate defense lawyer who got the Florida mother off the hook for the murder of her two-year-old daughter Caylee is sure to have some choice quotes after digesting the shocking verdict and the media and public outcry in the hours since.
The interview will be shared with several ABC News properties in addition to “The View.” Portions of the sitdown will air Wednesday on World News with Diane Sawyer and later at 10 p.m. for the primetime special “Casey Anthony Not Guilty: Inside the Bombshell Verdict.” On Thursday, the interview will run on “Good Morning America” and again on “The View.”
