@BreakingNews: Report: Lance Armstrong confesses to Oprah Winfrey that he used performance-enhancing drugs, source tells @AP

AP SOURCE: ARMSTRONG TELLS OPRAH HE DOPED

By JIM VERTUNO and JIM LITKE

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Lance Armstrong confessed to Oprah Winfrey during an interview Monday that he used performance-enhancing drugs to win the Tour de France, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the interview is to be broadcast Thursday on Winfrey's network.

Armstrong was stripped of all seven Tour titles last year following a voluminous U.S. Anti-Doping Agency report that portrayed him as a ruthless competitor, willing to go to any lengths to win the prestigious race.

USADA chief executive Travis Tygart labeled the doping regimen allegedly carried out by the U.S. Postal Service team that Armstrong once led, "The most sophisticated, professionalized and successful doping program that sport has ever seen."

7. I need to quote George Carlin here.

 

I'd like to begin by saying fuck Lance Armstrong. Fuck him and his balls and his bicycles and his steroids and his yellow shirts and the dumb empty expression on his face. I'm tired of that asshole.

16. Don't you remember the story of Lance Armstrong?

During the first Tour de France he temporarily won, the broadcasters spent 95 percent of their time talking about Lance Armstrong surviving testicular cancer and, at most, five percent talking about people riding bicycles really fast.

9. He had 10 friends?

"A group of about 10 close friends and advisers to Armstrong left a downtown Austin hotel about three hours after they arrived Monday afternoon for the taping." http://bigstory.ap.org/article/armstrong-ready-oprah-comes-town

12. He cheated. There. No need to watch Oprah lionize him

post-scandal, and help him refurbish his image.

Just saved you all 2.5 hours. You owe me beer and gas money. Or however that expression goes.

15. +1

He has no business in the public eye any more.
If anything, his drug use places and will keep him in deep danger healthwise for DECADES!
His history of lying and intimidation should have brought criminal charges.
Mr. Armstrong, you have other things to think about.
Competition may have been fun, but the party's over.

14. But... but.. but.. he never failed a drugs test! I thought it was all a conspiracy!

At least, that's what I have read on DU quite a few times.
