    Casey Anthony: ABC News gets drubbing for $200,000 payment

    The bad reviews just keep coming in for ABC News. Critics say the Disney-owned news organization was wrong in August 2008 to pay $200,000 to Casey Anthony and her family for photos and video of toddler Caylee Anthony.

    &#8220;It doesn&#8217;t make them look very family friendly, does it?&#8221; said Andrew Tyndall, who analyzes ABC, CBS and NBC evening news in his Tyndall Report. &#8220;It&#8217;s not just ABC News. It&#8217;s the entire corporation.&#8221; &#8220;The O&#8217;Reilly Factor&#8221; on Fox News seized on the Disney connection this week.

    ABC News spokeswoman Cathie Levine told the committee that the network should have disclosed the payment to viewers and that ABC had instituted a policy &#8212; because of the Anthony mistake &#8212; to do so in future reporting.

    The problem wasn&#8217;t that ABC made the payment but that Anthony was indicted, news analyst Tyndall said. &#8220;I don&#8217;t think ordinary people get worried about the ethics inside the journalism profession,&#8221; he said. &#8220;What they do get worried about is the idea of money being paid to somebody accused of committing a terrible crime.&#8221;

    The Society of Professional Journalists' ethics committee has once again condemned the growing trend of "checkbook journalism" at the broadcast networks.

    As we reported last week, during a pretrial hearing in the Casey Anthony case, it was revealed that ABC News paid Anthony's family $200,000, which went to her legal defense.
