Glaring from the headlines of WFTV and the Examiner were shocking declarations that Casey’s defense is searching for someone else to explain her story to the jury; someone willing to blurt it out so she won’t have to take the stand at her trial. On Tuesday, the ABC affiliate in Orlando wrote:
DEFENSE WANTS SOMEONE ELSE TO TELL CASEY’S STORY TO JURY¹
Yesterday, the Examiner had two separate headline links, and depending on which one you clicked, you saw:
CASEY ANTHONY TEAM FILES MOTION ASKING SOMEONE [to] TESTIFY ON HER BEHALF (READ HERE)²
The other one popped up two minutes later:
CASEY ANTHONY DEFENSE MOTION REQUESTING SOMEONE OTHER THAN CASEY BE ALLOWED TO TELL HER STORY AT HER TRIAL³
Of course, it would be easy to surmise, from WFTV’s headline and the first one from the Examiner, that Casey’s defense team is searching for someone who knows how to narrate a good story, perhaps someone like Garrison Keillor. The problem is, that’s not at all what the defense response says – the one both Websites loosely interpreted.
