Source: Armstrong Will Admit To Doping In Oprah Interview
Lance Armstrong "plans to make an admission about doping in an interview with Oprah Winfrey scheduled to tape Monday at his home in Austin." A source said that in the interview scheduled to air Thursday on the Oprah Winfrey Network, Armstrong "plans to admit to doping throughout his career but probably will not get into great detail about specific cases and events" (USATODAY.com, 1/12).
The DETROIT FREE PRESS' Drew Sharp writes Armstrong admitting to doping would be "about PR, not journalism." Winfrey is "this generation's Walter Cronkite, capable of massively shifting public sentiment" (1/13). Meanwhile, the London Times placed a full-page ad in today's Chicago Tribune under the header, "An Open Letter To Oprah Winfrey." Also, the N.Y. DAILY NEWS suggests a list of questions for Winfrey to ask Armstrong.
