Jose Baez: WFTV is ‘the Worst Tabloid Channel’

Today is the one-year anniversary of Casey Anthony‘s acquittal in the death of her daughter, Caylee. Anthony’s attorney, Jose Baez, has just released a book about the case, which was the subject of intense coverage in the Orlando market. The Orlando Sentinel‘s Hal Boedeker breaks down the details:

Early in the book, he blasts WFTV-Channel 9 as “the worst tabloid channel” and “a channel so inflammatory it was just a notch below ‘Nancy Grace.’”

Baez rips WKMG-Channel 6’s Tony Pipitone for being presumptuous in suggesting that Baez work on an insanity defense for Anthony. Baez blasts Michelle Meredith of WESH-Channel 2 for asking “a ridiculous and inflammatory question.”

TVNewser notes that Baez kicked off his book tour this morning on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” and will also appear tonight on Fox News Channel’s “On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.”
