In the answer to Baez's Motion to Recuse, the prosecution (State Of Florida) spelled out exactly what it thinks about the news reporting in this case. STATE OF FLORIDA'S MOTION TO STRIKE DEFENDANT'S EMERGENCY MOTION TO RECUSE dtd 1-29-09 1. On January 27 2009, the defendant, through counsel, filed her motion to recuse alleging that news media reports of statements supposedly made by a representitive of the Florida Bar constitute an effort by the State of Florida to interfere with the defendant's Sixth Admendment right to counsel. 8. The defendant's motion is based upon news media reports. The state of Florida would urge to deny without hearing any motion that cites as factual support the report of any news outlet. The media coverage to date has ranged from sensational to speculative to irresponsible to just plain wrong and should never form the basis for a motion in a court of law. I would love to gather a list of things (in one thread) that are unsubstantiated "facts" in this case or are examples of "irresponsible", "sensational" and "speculative" reporting that has come from the media. For instance, WFTV just had on their website a headline that stated: "Baez Tried To Smuggle Bracelet To Casey" Buried in the article is this statement from Jail Spokesman Allen Moore about the rubberband bracelet: "....there is no evidence that there was any malicious intent to smuggle in the bracelet." IMHO the headline by WFTV was an intentionally "sensational" and the word "smuggle" is an example of "irresponsible and sensational" journalism!
