In his new book, "Presumed Guilty - Casey Anthony: The Inside Story," defense attorney Jose Baez comes out swinging. He calls the media a "monster," the police "careless," and the prosecution "scheming, ruthless."

"This was not real life," writes Baez, "it was the media's Casey Anthony reality show, a show that depended on name-calling and controversy for television ratings."

What began with a phone call about representing a young woman accused of lying to law enforcement and child neglect, turned into a three-year child-murder case that made international headlines and turned him into the lead advocate for "the most hated woman in the world."

In "Presumed Guilty," Baez makes a compelling case for Anthony's innocence, revealing bits of evidence not introduced at trial - including rips in the shorts Caylee was buried in, and phone records that he says correspond with Casey's version of what happened the day Caylee died.
