    They are doing this simply for ratings. If they had just done a normal summary of the case, there would just be a few articles advertising the show, "Watch 48 Hours on the Caylee Anthony case on Saturday!" but by acquitting Casey, they are purposely causing controversy and outrage, which will bring more media coverage about their show, and more viewers who will tune in. I know the first 48 hours episode had about 6 million viewers, and I'm interested in seeing how many people watch the new episode. I hope the ratings are consistent, because if there's a big increase, that will just show that their controversial plan for ratings worked.

    Do photo agencies own any pictures of Caylee or were they all sold directly to the media outlets by the Anthonys? I know in JonBenet's case, all of her pageant pictures and videos are owned by photo agencies so whenever the media wants to use a picture/video of her, they have to pay a licensing fee to the photo agency. There is no media outlet that actually owns JonBenet's pageant videos/pictures; they have to pay the fee every time they show a picture or video. However, it seems that in Caylee's case, her pictures were just sold to the media outlets directly from the Anthonys, for them to use on any of their shows. I guess the Anthonys figured they could get a better deal licensing out Caylee's photos themselves, instead of selling them to a photo agency, or perhaps they didn't think of that option.

    Also, does anyone know how many pictures and videos that 200k covered?

    Focus group? Sounds like the focus group was sponsored by Kool-aid!

    I have to keep reminding myself that this "focus group" was not in any way selected by anyone representing the State. For all we know, whoever picked this particular group of people LOOKED for those who leaned toward the defense in the first place.

    I think the whole thing is a farce and it truly makes me sick CBS/48 Hrs. can produce this kind of "journalism" right before trial is due to start and get away with it. Talk about jury tampering...

    For that matter, they could have been actors. Who knows? Bunch of pure fiction.

    But If what Richard Hornsby opined, that Richard Gabriel is DT's jury consultant and the same person that visited ICA in jail and the same person on 48 Hours with a beard - Then the Defense Team was totally involved with this "mock jury focus group"

    my hinkey meter is up...wonder if there was an agreement with JB to give theses shows full access to everything once the trail is over in return of good press and these so called focus groups. They all must live under a rock. LOL

    You know what ya'll? I think maybe we need to just ignore this whole thing - they obviously want the controversy - any publicity is good publicity!! And this will give the DT and the defendant (and her mother) reason to think they can be cocky. Let them gloat. It will be disgusting to watch, but someone needs to remind them that:

    This focus group never saw the actual case against Casey. I would wager they don't know a fourth of the things we know just from reading the discovery. :banghead:

    Let Cindy gloat. It will just be that much sweeter when the REAL verdict comes.

    Well she has already spent more time in jail than most who have been convicted of murder. At some point like it or not she will be let go and giving a big high-five to her brother. She will have a big smile on her face while racking in tons of money telling us all how she is the victim. Her daughter will be a distant memory while she is totally 100% self-absorbed.
