Jodi Arias: 'Death Is The Ultimate Freedom'

Convicted killer Jodi Arias just keeps confounding the TV analysts.

"Jodi Arias could only wait a few minutes after being convicted to find a television camera and start talking," ABC's Ryan Owens marveled on "Good Morning America."

Arias had told the Fox station in Phoenix that she wanted to be put to death after being convicted of first-degree murder in the brutal slaying of former boyfriend Travis Alexander. Arias gave everyone something more to talk about.

"So bizarre that she spoke so quickly after the verdict," ABC's Robin Roberts said.

It was another chance to recall Jose Baez's skill in keeping Casey Anthony from TV cameras and interviews.

What's next as the jury decides whether Arias will get death?

"Jodi Arias has changed her story so many times throughout this case, we're not sure what she'll say," Star Jones said on NBC's "Today."

"One thing that did come out is she is definitely a liar and had to admit that many times on the stand," "Today" anchor Savannah Guthrie agreed.

ABC's Dan Abrams theorized that Arias was trying to manipulate the jury. "My guess is that she does want the jury to come back with a life sentence," he said on "Good Morning America." "She's hoping that by saying she'd prefer death that the jurors will then punish her, so to speak, by giving her life in prison."

Abrams said it was "amazing" that someone just convicted of first-degree murder would sit for a TV interview moments later. "Look she lies so often that it's hard to trust anything that comes out of her mouth," Abrams said.

HLN's Nancy Grace, also on "Good Morning America," said that Arias' attorneys had to be appalled that she had given the interview. "All of this can come in in the next two phases of trial," she said. Grace said the defense needed to shut Arias up.

"I believe death is the ultimate freedom, so I'd rather just have my freedom as soon as I get it," Arias told the Fox station.

"It's just an incredible story," Norah O'Donnell said on "CBS This Morning."

Yep, it sure is. And it's far from over.

NBC has lined up more Arias coverage in a "Dateline" at 9 p.m. Friday. The title: "Obsession: The Jodi Arias Story."
