The N.Y. TIMES' Alessandra Stanley writes Armstrong "appeared as reasoned and dispassionate telling the truth as he did all those years that he so fluently and convincingly spun a lie." The AUSTIN AMERICAN-STATESMAN's Kirk Bohls: "Transparency was lacking. So was sincerity." ESPN.com's Bonnie Ford: "It was desperate. And huge chunks of it ranged from disingenuous to unbelievable." FOXSPORTS.com's Sam Gardner writes Armstrong "was never particularly contrite, and his outward emotion never really changed."
SPORTSONEARTH.com's Will Leitch collected some quantitative data about Armstrong's answers under the header, "Numbers Don't Lie."
