(Newser) – When octuplet mom Nadya Suleman's reps named the price for footage of the birth—$1.2 million—NBC was the only outlet to indicate interest. The network denies paying for her exclusive sit-down with Ann Curry, but an insider tells the New York Post NBC used an intermediary to deliver a "donation." Counters an NBC rep, citing network policy:  "Not a dime."
