The Los Angeles Times reports that Santa Barbara County is asking news organizations covering the Michael Jackson trial to come up with a total of around $800,000 to defray the expenses the county will incur through having all those journalists and camera crews to deal with. The costs break down to about $125/day for newspapers and about $300/day for national tv crews- much much more than the Peterson trial.
