What’s in a name …

Tacky but typical of modern media:

The media, as a group, agreed to help court officials by putting themselves all in one place, an attempt to make logistics and security easier for all. And that one place, a production official said off-handedly at one of the meetings, was a “Casey Town” of media.


We know this is about you, Caylee

    “Casey Town” was an off-handed remark made by someone trying to explain to the local media what was being proposed for the undeveloped lot across the street from the courthouse. That is, an area for all the expected local and national news satellite trucks and an area for studio-type television broadcasts.

    “It was not an attempt to aggrandize Casey Anthony. It was simply an off-the-cuff term coined about that piece of property. As some readers know, the other team that has been used is ‘Camp Casey’ — because the media will be camping out over there.”

    Anthony’s defense filed a motion asking that the video of the reaction and any accounts of it be suppressed from the trial. In response, prosecutors said they don’t even plan to introduce the reaction.

    “Under Florida’s reporter’s privilege statute, Ms. Belich has a qualified privilege not to be a witness concerning, and not to disclose, information she obtained while actively gathering news in the normal scope of her employment,” unless the defense proves the information is relevant to unresolved issues, cannot be obtained elsewhere and a compelling interest exists for disclosing the information, according to the filing.

    The motion, filed by media attorneys Rachel Fugate and Gregg D. Thomas, says the defense has not “made the requisite showing to defeat application of the privilege.”

    WFTV, the motion states, is also “concerned that an attempt may be made to exclude Ms. Belich from the courtroom pursuant to the rule authorizing sequestration of witnesses.”

    ”The more it was staged to get her reaction, the greater danger it is that it could become an issue on appeal,” WFTV-Channel 9 legal analyst Bill Sheaffer said.

    WESH-Channel 2 analyst Richard Hornsby agreed. “There’s no need to jeopardize the entire case over one piece of questionable evidence,” Hornsby told Bob Kealing.
