Lance Armstrong's Oprah Winfrey Interview Aired
After years of denials, the disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong admitted using performance-enhancing drugs and blood doping prior to his 2008 comeback from retirement on his interview with Oprah Winfrey aired online and on Oprah's cable channel OWN Thursday night. However, he denied that he did so in 2009 and 2010 and also that he had applied any pressure to his Tour de France teammates to join him in doping
What did not go quite well with his critics and fans on the social media was his statement that he felt that he was not cheating because he "looked the word up in the dictionary." Armstrong admitted that he was a "jerk" and a "prick" at various points in the interview, and that saying sorry was not his forte. "All of this is a process for me," the cyclist said. "I'll spend the rest of my life trying to earn back trust and apologize."
