ABC News is facing sharp criticism over the disclosure that it paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to a Florida woman who now stands accused of killing her own daughter.
The $200,000 payment in August 2008 to Casey Anthony was used for exclusive rights to reproduce family photographs and videotape of her then-missing 2-year-old, Caylee.
The pictures and footage were used on Sept. 5, 2008, as the heart of a story on ABC's Good Morning America and a full-hour treatment later that night on the prime-time newsmagazine 20/20. Casey Anthony was charged with child neglect and endangerment that day. The next month, she was indicted by a grand jury on charges of murder....
No one commented about this? Hmm, I vaguely remember it after reading the material on it, q.v., Casey Anthony Trial Fast Facts. However, the story wasn't so much about Casey Anthony, as it was about ABC TV News, which has had a strong streak of anti-Christianity going for it. See the article, Pray for Peter Jennings‚ÄĒHe‚Äôs Searching If memory serves he was also pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel. Oh, forget about praying for him, Christians don't believe in prayers for the dead, He died some years after this article was written.
So, SA, used a good source and it was an interesting article, too bad none of us commented on it when it came out.
