Lance Armstrong: This Bob Ley Interview From 2006 Reveals Far More Than Oprah Will

By Ty Duffy

Bob Ley interviewed Lance Armstrong for “Outside The Lines” about allegations into his performance enhancing drug use in June 2006. Ley brings the heat for 10 minutes. Lance deflects and retreats to clichés and talking points.

This interview highlights the paramount point about Lance Armstrong. He’s not a jerk for taking performance enhancing drugs (everyone else was/is) or even for not being forthright about it (understandable). He’s a jerk for bullying and callously impugning the integrity and character of former colleagues, former employees, legends of the sport, media members and anyone else who stood in his way. People trying to tell the truth.
