NBC: No, We Didn’t Pay To Interview Lady With 8 Babies

A woman named Nadya Suleman had octuplets earlier this month. Then, a couple days later, NBC News landed an exclusive interview. Lots of people watched.

Then, from somewhere, rumours started that NBC paid Nadya for the interview. Today, an NBC rep denied the charges. “NBC News does not pay for interviews,” NBC News SVP of communications Allison Gollust told TVNewser:
