Local Fool Calls Press Conference to Complain About Media Attention

-Orlando, FL

In a move of mind-numbing ignorance, Orlando fool George Anthony called a press conference today to formally complain about all the media attention he’s been getting. In fact, Anthony’s disgust with the press inspired him to take pen to paper and compose a literary masterpiece called “Life Under a Microscope,” a short essay he opted to read in-person, rather than through his lawyer/paid mouthpiece, for the annoying, intrusive cameras this morning.

In the essay, Anthony describes the inconvenience of voluntarily walking under a microscope and making totally conflicting statements about his grandaughter’s murder, only to have all his words and actions “unfairly dissected” by an overzealous media, and bored evil bloggers looking for their 15 minutes of “fame” under totally anonymous pseudonymns.

Bafflingly, George went on to claim that on average, a whopping 9 out of 10 people made positive, heartwarming comments about him, leaving many reporters scratching their heads as to why he would feel compelled to call a press conference to complain about negative publicity. But the one vicious comment, he went on to say, would be so hurtful it outweighed ALL the others, prompting his call for national attention to the issue today.

7th graders everywhere nodded their heads in agreement.

He also wished to clarify that the controversial diamond stud spotted in his ear on a recent luxury Bahamian cruise was inspired by his daughter (and accused murderess) Casey, who complimented him once on his “attractive earlobes.” Ahh, well….that changes EVERYTHING.

At the conclusion of his impassioned speech, George announced that published, autographed copies of his essay were available free with purchase of Andrea Lyons new book, “Angel of Death Row,” out in the lobby. Also available (for the right price): Cindy Anthony’s “Guide to Public Relations,” Jose Baez’s “Mouthbreathing for Dummies,” and replicas of Casey’s “Mother of the Year” plaque.

    Incidentally, his teacher gave him an “F”. She said the piece was not a complete grammatical horror, but the assignment was to write a book report on the newest Mad Libs edition.

    Unfortunately, this means that KC will not be receiving the GED her dad has been trying so hard to earn by putting her name on the assignments…

    • Spacely, I’m so sorry you were trapped in my spam folder until I set you free today! πŸ™‚ I have no clue how you ended up in there, but now that you’re out, LOL!! Did she ever make up that 1/4 credit she needed to get her diploma?

      I read your link. That’s creepy. Very similar case…. tragic….

    How funny!! Thank you for the humor, but sadly what you wrote is absolutely true!! Don’t you just love the hypocriscy of theses two grifters?

    George was in the Bahamas? How on earth did they afford that trip with both of them unemployed? Maybe there is a private benefactor in the wings, waiting for their 15 minutes of fame too! Good lord George, sounds to me like you are looking for publicity at this point. Noone is talking about you or Cindy or Lee anymore. Casey is a different matter. She is still going to trial and there are more documents to read. I did happen upon Lee’s posts in 2008 plus a couple of letters back and forth between Cindy and her brother. Now that was enlightening. Don’t fuel the fire George, stick to what you know not how you feel.

    I’m curious how all you others out there feel

  5. Posted by Elizabeth on January 8, 2010 at 1:37 pm

    I feel BORED.. The Anthonys are becoming “old news”…this has gone on far, far too long. The trial should have started long ago. Andrea Lyon is doing what she set out to do: Bring attention to her book. Once that is done she will probably find a legal way to remove herself from this case. She is now saying that no homocide was ever committed. That’s where this is going next. yawning

  6. Posted by Elizabeth on January 8, 2010 at 1:49 pm

    The Defense are going to say “it was an accident” and go with that. Casey was “afraid” to tell anyone, so made up Zannie story.

    Hi Linda! Hypocrisy is the perfect word for it, huh? πŸ™‚

  8. Posted by eggtreenews on January 8, 2010 at 2:01 pm

    Hi Weezie! My understanding is The Anthonys took a cruise to the Bahamas right around the time the 48 Hours special aired, which was in (I think) late October. There was speculation they used $$ earned from the special to pay for the cruise. The tabloids got hold of some photos of them on the cruise, and George was wearing a diamond earring, and they both had Caylee-themed tattoos. The press criticized them for it. The weird thing is, why bring it up now, over 2 months later? Nobodys mentioned the earring at all lately, so why would he stir the pot by bringing it up again, ya know? πŸ™‚

    weezie, I feel disgusted. one earring would have been bad, but both?
    while georgie was in california on larry king, and dining on crab puffs, some very serious dedicated careful people were picking up bones. down the street from his house!

    At that time his darling casey was already in jail charged with murder=partially based on his testimony.
    He sometimes feels like jumping out the window? He lives in a one story house for crissakes.
    He’s goes on TV to whine about us whining about his whining.

    sigh. yeah I feel disgusted.

  10. Posted by eggtreenews on January 8, 2010 at 2:08 pm

    Hey Elizabeth! It is tedious, and I really wish the trial would start. Its dragging…. I do think The Lyon will remove herself fairly soon (we can hope!). They might try and cry accident, but it’ll never fly. If they do, they’ll throw George under the bus, not Casey.

  11. Posted by MJ on January 8, 2010 at 2:11 pm

    Do you think that you could contact Fox Orlando for your own “reading”?
    George was pure magic, mesmerizing and his subject matter , well, brilliant, but really I think this piece has more depth. I’ll be looking for you on tv.

  12. Posted by BEES KNEES on January 8, 2010 at 2:15 pm

    HaHaHa!!! That is FUNNY!!!

    Blink has also taken issue with George’s letter. Here’s a snippet (below). You can read the rest at her link.

    ++++++++++

    β€œWhen she was found and OCSO and the FBI spent 72 hours straight at the site to make sure they had all this baby’s bones what did you do?
    You called the very people whose hands extracted almost every teensy bone of this cherub β€œeffing flunkies” and ordered them out of your house.”

    Hey MJ! That’s all part of my master plan, as one of those fame-seeking bloggers!

    • Posted by MJ on January 8, 2010 at 3:17 pm

      Of course it is your plan. Isn’t that what we all really want? It’s serendipity that some of us find ourselves in a prickly sitcheachun but have the street smarts to recognize a golden goose for the golden part. That’s why george n cindy (gindy) are where they are today. Pure genius, those two.
      Follow in their footsteps if you dare!

  17. Thanks egg, I needed that. That family brings it upon themselves for the satirical comments. Every time you hear about them, it’s a new swirl of the bowl.
    George should be out volunteering with all his great writing skills- not. Oh, I forgot, they have jobs – counting blood money.
    This trial is moving at the speed of oozing mud due to all the TV apprearances and book signings of the defense.
    When this trial is over with, Casey will become a T shirt of the week at best. They will all disappear and be forgotten. People will be sick to death of them. (Insert death pun here) And, I will write a book as just a lowly blogger and become rich too. Ha!

    Hi Blink! Thank you so kindly for the compliment! I’m so glad you enjoyed it! πŸ™‚

  21. I just have ONE question. Where are they finding all of these soft/feel good interviewers at? I just want to jump through the screen and ask George or Cindy a tough question that hasn’t been rehearsed over and over. Must be some kind of waver or a list of questions a reporter is allowed to ask. Why bother? These softball whining sessions are just infuriating people more than they already are. George, PLEASE stay home!!! You are NOT helping your beloved daughter. In fact………You are hurting her case even more because of the disgust the public has for you and your family.

  23. Posted by BrendakaRileysmom on January 8, 2010 at 4:17 pm

    Why did George feel the need to call a press conference to formally complain about all the media attention he’s been getting???? Because he’s so disgusted with the media, George composed a literary masterpiece about “Life Under A Microscope”??? Why did he have to read it in front of the media he is complaining about???? Was there any $$$$ paid by the media outlets to George???? How in the world, did George find his way off Hope Spring Drive and around Orlando without Cindy???

    πŸ˜† Very Well Said! I love it! I think you hit at the core issues here. πŸ˜† I think I see one of their past patterns rearing it’s ugly head again. Let’s see……………A document dump? New info of any kind?? “Damage Control” :mrgreen: , I don’t think he and Lyon doing the media rounds is an accident. Of course she has a book that came out, but usually the A’s do start up the rants when something big is coming. A plea deal on the check fraud? Maybe their broke and he sold the letter to them?

  29. Posted by Donna on January 8, 2010 at 9:35 pm

    Love it!! Thanks so much for the humor in this unbelievable ridiculousness. The only other person that would call a press conference to complain about media attention is Jose Baez. The two of them deserve each other, with Cindy thrown in.

    Eggcellent :mrgreen:

    I must give credit to Spacely who aptly pointed out that it won’t be long before Cindy gives us a bigger/better more verbiose epistle…it’s all about one-upmanship with the Anthony family.

    Message to George … “Keep your shirt on instead of flaunting your tat!” We all know this was done for a publicity stunt…same as your “me me me” essay…have you forgotten Caylee?

    Hugs β™₯β™₯β™₯

    Hi Carol! You’re very welcome, and I’m in total agreement with everything you wrote. I can’t WAIT for them all to go away…

    Hey Diana! Just once, I’d like to see an interviewer who knows a sliver or two of evidence, and who isn’t afraid to really pin them down on the lies. Its so maddening. And draining.

    Hi Patti! Thanks very much!

  32. Posted by eggtreenews on January 8, 2010 at 11:28 pm

    Hey BrendakaRileysmom! I know, their hypocrisy is astounding, huh?! I’m not sure if $$ exchanged hands for the interview, but I wouldn’t rule out “licensing fees.” I’m sure he got somethin out of it, anyway. LOL! I’m surprised cindy wasn’t standing next to him holding his leash! πŸ™‚

    Hi Nauseated! Thanx!

  33. Posted by eggtreenews on January 8, 2010 at 11:52 pm

    Howdy Niecey! Ya know, I was wondering the same thing about damage control…all the signs are there…maybe a docdrop is coming? I guess we’ll find out next week.

    Hi Brendagail! Thank you so much for the compliment! Glad you liked it! πŸ™‚

    Hi Donna! You’re more than welcome. I’m pretty sure Baez has done this exact thing a few times before. He must be coaching George. They do all deserve eachother; I’ve never seen such a cluster of nincompoops.

    Hi Jill!! I hope wondertwin Spacely will give us a sneak preview of cindys essay. George would be wise to listen your advice, but I’m afraid he’s gone to the dark side… :mrgreen:

    Hey Eggy :mrgreen:

    I read over at Blinks that this essay [written before October 2008] was to be presented at a seminar that fortunately due to the public outcry George and Cindy were un-invited to attend. From memory the seminar title was very similar to GA’s current presentation.

    George states that he wrote this during Thanksgiving 2009…LIAR!!!! Disgusting πŸ‘Ώ LIAR!!!

    Oooooooh Spacely…please give us a preview of Cindy’s essay….purrrrty please πŸ˜†

    Hugs β™₯β™₯β™₯

    • Hey Jill! Ugggghhh….liar liar britches on fire, george. That’s VERY interesting….I think Niecey’s on to something, and they’re in damage control mode. We’ll find out next week. Hugs!!

      Jill~ good catch…..you would think that if they had one brain cell between them they would know that people would figure that out. Whatever planet they came from must have a force shield that blocks out common sense. C’mon george, couldn’t ya even doctor up the title a little bit? DOH!

    Keep up the good work there, Eggy! I am quite sure that the Anthonys will be reading this too!

  36. excellent and soooo perfectly witty.. not to mention TRUE!!! thanks.

    he reminded me of casey in the jailhouse visit where everything was taken from HER!!! he was the same privacy taken from him, normalcy taken from him, joy over holidays taken from him, his daughter taken from him. protester taking peace away from him!! NOT ONE WORD did he have for all that has been taken from little caylee…

    The Anthony’s wouldn’t be living their lives under a microscope had they taken care of their problem child Casey years ago. But no…..she lied, stole money etc and Casey never suffered the consquences for her actions. They all have the same motto: “it’s all about me”, “poor me”. They made their bed, now lie in it. Enough about themselves. What about Caylee?

    “Literary masterpiece” No kidding! Funny funny post Eggie!

    Thanks! I needed a chuckle. I think we all do at this point…

  40. Posted by tired of all of this BS on January 9, 2010 at 9:53 pm

    Jump George, Jump! Sling open Caylee’s window and do all of us a favor. You and your warden have been nothing but amusing during this whole thing.

    I cannot wait until the trial to see how your story changes again when you know the SA is going to be listening to every lying word that comes out of your and the warden’s mouth. I would love to see both of you busted down to your socks, told to bend over and spread em. Then you can join “Gorgeous”. Won’t that be fun. You can all get together to compares lies and just catch up.

    You two just keep talking. You are just digging your hole deeper and deeper.

    • Hi Tired! I doubt his perilous fall from a first story window would do much damage, but he would probably try anyway, just to have a story to tell. πŸ™‚ I would love to see all of them held accountable for their actions (dreams, dreams), and hopefully all the BS they’re spewing on air will eventually come back to haunt them.

    Too funny and way true! Thanks for the chuckle!

  42. thanks for some fun truth and entertainment! i now no longer will watch anything on fox news-do ev er so wonder about the gerakdo,baez, and fox connection–i can only dreaam for the answer

    • Hi Jean! I wonder about that too… Baez has a real “bromance” going on with Geraldo, and Fox in general. Maybe we’ll learn more about that before this is all over.

    Read this yesterday and I am still laughing this evening. I should not have read it again before bedtime;)
    It is just inconceivable to me that None of these people understand how Idiotic they Might (;) sound before they speak/read, whatever. It’s like they are trying to resurrect the old SNL Coneheads.
    If Ever the old adage, birds of a feather flock together fit, it is with this character flawed bevy of buffoons from CMA through her parents, Lee, and all their Associates including the PI and duh-fense. Please, God, don’t let this be some new communicable disease.

    • Hi Blueonblue! Its tough to wrap my head around their mentality. Its like they’re one giant cluster of arrogant, hostile EGOS out to steamroll anyone and anything that doesn’t swallow their idiotic delusion. I’m pretty firmly convinced they intentionally push the public’s buttons like this to spark public “hate” so they can then cry victim, and thus their cycle of manipulation continues. Sickening…..

    Local Fool’s Spouse Releases Own Microscopic Ramblings

    In response to the release of total nonsense last week by local media stations unaware of the tragedy of this case, Mrs. Fool has published her own essay through yet more irresponsible media outlets. Below are excerpts (as our typesettists refuse to dull their brains by entering the entire text):

    A Perfect 10 Magnified to 100

    or

    You Can Say Anything on TV (It’s the Stand You Got to Be Worried About)

    … I wrote stuff too, not just George, he can’t even hold a crayon without me telling him which color to pick…

    … and then I told that stupid detective it couldn’t be her because I knew she would never do something like that even though I picked her up from her friend’s apt while she was doing it, but it couldn’t have been her…

    … seriously, if she did it, why would I have called the cops???

    … after he went on and on and on about it, I finally told him just to get a six pack and a motel room and get it over with if that’s the way he felt about it, but PLEASE just get out of this room so D and I can get back to it…

    … I told that Morgan off in no uncertain terms. Can you imagine someone telling me that I am lying when he has that fake babysitter sitting there stealing the name from my baby’s story as if she was born with it?!? The sheer gall…

    … I’m not even sure that was her. I still got people looking in Puerto Rico and I get tips everyday…

    … Why shouldn’t I take a cruise? It’s been a tough year and I haven’t slept…

    … Who doesn’t take a hose to people in their yard?

      Spacely~ lol
      I want to be just like Mrs. Fool, I know I’ll fall short though.
      If you have contact with her please tell her I have an extremely large check for her foundation, heck, ya know, I’ll just write it out to her personally, she deserves it.
      Thanks for bringing her story to us.
      Does Lee have their way with words also?

    George: Where are they?
    Cindy: what?
    George whispering: “my nads”.
    Cindy: They are still in my purse and you just leave them there. Now let me hear you read that letter one more time.

  47. Posted by Jill from Western Australia on January 12, 2010 at 1:13 am

    Tee Hee Spacely :mrgreen:

    Silly thing is that you are probably correct in your ponderings…there is no way that Cindy is going to let George have the limelight for long. Anyone running a “book” on when her “epistle” will hit the airwaves?

    Eisor :mrgreen: I can just see that happening…gosh I must be turning into a sad old “FLAB” πŸ™„

  48. I think George Anthony has some serious issues. I think he always has. Maybe a little too in touch with his feminine side, so by marrying a bulldog it just magnifies that. I have zero pity for these two. I wish I could, but just when I start to…….they do something so bazaar (like this latest goofy whine session), that I despise them all over again and even more so.
