Context is important in stories, and WFTV-Channel 9 dropped context in reporting on the Casey Anthony saga on Wednesday night. Anthony is charged with first-degree murder in the death of her daughter, Caylee.
WFTV reported that CBS News paid $20,000 for several photos of Casey and Caylee Anthony that were recently posted on the CBS web site. Those photos included one of Casey after giving birth to Caylee. Another showed Casey in her high-school senior portrait.

Judge Issues Plan For Anthony Hearing
Hearing Slated For Tuesday
Judge Belvin Perry made a change as to what controversial issues he will consider at a hearing in the Casey Anthony case on Tuesday.
The prosecution and defense have been going back and forth regarding how much prosecutors must reveal about why they're seeking to have Anthony executed.
Both sides have insisted they're right. The defense filed a motion to strike the state's so-called notice of aggravating circumstances because it lacks the detail to which they believe they're entitled.
