Now that the Casey Anthony trial is over, HLN and all of its hosts are still in scramble mode to continue their collective campaign in bashing Casey at every opportunity. In addition, HLN is actively doing everything humanly possible to increase market share and that translates into increased advertising revenue.
They figure if they keep the trial, Casey Anthony, and indirectly Caylee in the news, they can maximize ad revenue on all their shows – loosely translated that means “Making blood money on Caylee”.
They are also hell bent on doing everything possible to find out exactly where Casey is and that translates into “Where in the world is Casey Marie Anthony?” I am sure HLN wishes it could author a book where they can show Casey visiting all her favorite nightclubs where she is doing shots and everyone is touching everyone else. The book could also have a centerfold map of the U. S. and it could come with map pins where readers could map the current rumors as to where Casey is at any moment in time.
At the same time this is going on HLN is ”doing the right thing” for Caylee by making sure that all their morally correct viewers promise to not purchase any videos, photos, books, movies, or any personal interviews of Casey (especially if any interviews are granted on competing networks like ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, or any secondary networks such as “E”, OWN, or even USA, TNT, or CURRENT.
What I find interesting though, is HLN is continuing to show a picture that is rumored to be the “first” picture of Casey after leaving the jail where she is drinking a bottle of beer. HLN is also showing Casey at clubs having a good time dancing with women and men along with numerous photos of Casey in quite provocative poses.
So, why isn’t what is good for the Goose (HLN in this case) not also good for the Gander (Casey)?
HLN constantly covers segments showing details of everyone who is standing in line to get money from Casey either through lawsuits or just to present her bills for services they have performed.
HLN keeps doing their best to interview celebrities like Mark Geragos, Larry Flynt, and others to keep viewer interest at an almost historic high.
HLN has also covered every rumored offer that either has been presented to Casey or rumored offers that might be offered to Casey. These range from Jerry Springer, to Hustler, Vivid Entertainment, the three major networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC), and even a consortium of foreign investors who are rumored to pool their money to pay for an exclusive Casey Anthony interview.
If debts are mounting against Casey, she will need some income stream that can be used to pay all the people in line but HLN is doing the “noble” thing by doing everything possible to dissuade any companies from doing business with Casey. To me, that translates “We (HLN) can make blood money off of Caylee but no one else can – including Casey”.
I think HLN is acting like a spoiled child who is being punished and sent to bed with no dessert. They really want the interview with Casey but Baez and his team are giving interviews to other networks instead of HLN because of how nasty HLN’s hosts have treated Baez and company collectively during and after the trial. As a result, HLN is talking to everyone else to counter the blackout by Jose Baez.
HLN would love to book an “Extreme Cagefighting Match” between Nancy “Twin Mom” Grace and Casey “Tot Mom” Anthony with Jane “Loud Mouth” Velez-Mitchell and Vinnie “Perfect Hair” Napolitan as referees. It would be 3 five-minute rounds. Judge Beldon Perry would be the announcer and he could stop the fight at will to have side-bars with the referees to discuss any cheap hits, spitting, or rumored biting incidents. Tickets could go at high as $150.00 ringside and CourtTV, aka TruTV subscriptions would go for $49.99 because hundreds of people would pack bars and clubs to view the “most hated women in America” fighting for the crown.
I digress and I apologize, but wasn’t it fun???
If HLN cared so much about Caylee and her unfortunate death they would not be trying to prevent Casey from making any significant income in the next few months because that money would be used to pay off lawsuits and to pay claims by others who helped in the search for Caylee.
So, to help out, why doesn’t HLN donate some of their lucrative profits from ad revenue to Texas Equusearch, and anyone along the way who volunteered their services in finding Caylee?
I am sure HLN’s loyal listeners would highly appreciate anything HLN would choose to do on behalf of Caylee. HLN could even donate money on Caylee’s behalf to other active cases, like the case they are covering of Celina Cass, the 5th grade girl who is missing in New Hampshire. Why not? HLN gets significant ad revenue from covering these kind of cases – why don’t they simply give back some of that income to where it can do the most good?
On a side note and not of any less importance, Jean Casarez was in last night for Nancy “Tot Mom” Grace and she did another wonderful job filling in – except for the fact that the WHOLE show was dedicated to Casey Anthony in one manner or another. Not one minute was dedicated to Celina Cass, but 45 seconds was spent on a tribute to LCPL. Stephen Johnson USMC, who died on October 8th, 2006 at the age of 20. The tribute was well done and quite deserving but HLN, in their infinite wisdom chose to ignore little Celina Cass, the 11 year old girl who is still missing in New Hampshire close to the Canadian border. Shame on you HLN, Nancy Grace, and even Jean Casarez, who chose to not keep Celina in the public’s view. Up until last night, Jean was at the top of my list as a suggested replacement for Nancy but Jean lost all my respect by focusing every minute of the show to Casey Anthony.
Please take part in the poll “Should HLN donate some of its Caylee Anthony Blood Advertising Money to charities?”
By the way, I used the word Blood just like individuals referred to Blood Diamonds in South Africa. I have no intention of showing disrespect to Caylee but I did intend to show disrespect for HLN and its hosts who are making ad money off of Caylee’s death. And as Nancy Grace says “It is all about Caylee”.
