Gotta Watch: Stay away from the webcam

Nowadays just about anyone can get a hold of a camera and upload videos online for the whole world to see… whether this is a good or a bad thing is still up for debate. Just yesterday a “web diary” from Casey Anthony was “leaked” online, receiving a lot of attention. This got us here at Gotta Watch thinking about the perils of webcams. Whether you shouldn’t be allowed alone with a camera, or you just can’t figure out how to work it, here is a look back some top webcam fails.

Casey Anthony’s web confessional – A video surfaced Thursday of Casey Anthony, sporting a new blonde hairdo and glasses, talking vaguely about the developments in her life since being acquitted of murder last year. Many people have criticized the “tot mom” video as being narcissistic and a publicity stunt, even though her lawyers claim it was unauthorized.

Is this thing on? – An older couple mistakenly became a YouTube hit after recording themselves trying to use a webcam.  These seniors may not have any idea what they were doing, but it sure is amusing to watch.

Leave Britney alone! – One passionate fan just couldn’t stand all the criticism Britney Spears was receiving from the media in 2007, so he decided to speak up on her behalf. While you may not agree or even care about the point he is trying to make, you can’t deny that he is pleading his case with fanaticism enthusiasm.

    Why is this on CNN? Front page no less. Not only is it irrelevant, it's also 3 examples of "webcam fails". Nice reporting CNN.

    Get over it. Casey Anthony did not "get away with murder." The state of Florida couldn't prove a case for murder, nor could thet prove manslaughter or aggravated child abuse. There was and is nothing to connect her to the death of her child, no fingerprints, no DNA, no eye-witness testimony, NADA. Should we let bloggers take over our justice system?

    How stupid is this? Anyone in law inforcement who knows how to track that can find her. She is obviously a fry or several short of a happy meal. Hope it is a fake and hope the person who faked it has not put herself in danger.
    If it is really shows how out of touch she is........sad either way.

    If ANY of that team think that they will not get a taste of Casey's sting they are in denial. If Casey was capable of murdering her own child in such a horrific manner then changing lie after lie to protect herself. Then tried to bring down her own father in open court in such a disgusting and vial way then I can only imagine what she will do to Baez AND company if they go against her in anyway.

    Eventually they will all get tied of supporting Casey Anthony and want her to leave. What ten? Baez will be accused of raping her or something worse. Sims needs to watch out for her son because Casey will bring him down also, or even her husband. Casey tried to destroy each and every person that she ever came in contact with, parents, child, best friend, boy friends etc., NO ONE was excluded from her sting.

    Wait Baez, Sims, Mason and whom ever else steps in her way.

    I predict for 2012 that Casey Anthony will make headlines again for something that is against the law. She will be put on trial again. This time Baez will stay out of it or may be the plaintiff.

    Anyone that helps or goes near Casey Anthony will get a taste of her sting..

    I guarantee that Casey is already preparing her masterful lies just incase they decide to throw Casey out in the street. Lets be real, NO ONE is going to keep supporting Casey for the rest of her life. It has to end somewhere. That will be the point when Casey's lies surface again...

    I wait for the day that Baez, Sims and Mason will regret ever having defended Casey Anthony. The day when they realize that it wasn't worth it. They made NO money from her and are stuck having her as a dependant.

    Good for them, they deserve everything Casey Has planned for them.

    George and Cindy are probably estactic that Casey is gone out of their lives, they can now maybe enjoy life without a psycho living in their home. George should NEVER forgive his daughter for doing what she did, not only to Caylee but to him and her brother Lee as well.

    Casey is worse than a wild animal.
