Chaney Mason, one of Casey Anthony's defense attorneys, has confirmed the woman in the video is indeed Casey Anthony. Mr. Mason told a Fox network affiliate that Casey has confirmed to him that she made the video diary for herself, but did not post it to the internet. Mr. Mason believes the video was obtained illegally and uploaded by someone other than Casey.
This revelation has not stopped the networks from squeezing everything they can from the short, 4 minute diary entry. Nancy Grace, the HLN network darling that first alerted the nation to Casey Anthony, is none too pleased about the video diary, its contents and the fact the video is going viral.
Nancy spoke with Mike Galanos this morning on HLN's News Now and gave her views on the video. Nancy says the video is reprehensible and she was put-off by seeing Casey back in the nation spotlight. It isn't any surprise hearing Nancy tell the viewers she is convinced Casey is still lying as much as always. She firmly believes that Casey knowingly allowed the broadcast of the video diary through two online pay-per-view video sights.
Ms. Grace, like other network anchors, is more concerned about Casey not mentioning her family, Caylee or the justice system in the diary and Casey's nonverbal cues. She goes on to state that this video is nothing more than generating an interest in Casey and making money. Nancy did say "they" are shopping a one million dollar deal for Casey to tell her story on camera, but never mentions who "they" are. Apparently Nancy has not gotten over her anger at Casey Anthony, but shouldn't Nancy be happy that Casey has herself back in the spotlight? The Casey Anthony case did help Nancy's star status to rise a bit higher.
