I remember when critical thinking was no longer taught in the secondary education schools I went to. Guillibility increased right after that.

I don't believe it was ever taught in the UK when I was at school - something I would definitely like to see though, lol.

Did anyone watch The World According to Lance on CNN last night? The show covered a lot of detail and presented it well.

It originally aired on the Four Corners TV series in Australia. They posted the entire show online:
The World According to Lance - Four Corners

They also posted an article about the "key players," including a videotaped deposition of Armstrong in the SCA case (He firmly states under oath that he never used performance enhancing drugs):

I think public fame has lost it's adjuration.

The TDF has vacated his titles and has said, since 21 of the 22 other rides on the podium for those 7 years were also dopers, there are no winners for those years. What a shame.

Too true - it is not as if these guys are not superb athletes and are doing a quite dangerous and exciting spectator sport so the drugs are just unnecessary. The TDF would still rank as one of the world's top sporting achievements for any winner. I hope changes do come about and are lasting.

Some of those on this forum who were defending Armstrong (against strong indications or lack of knowledge) might like to admit their bias or lack of judgement now?

In the US one is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. I don't really care one way or another though.

It isn't people are standing by him because he is innocent

It's the fact they had to keep pushing the BS over so many years

The fact that they test these people every time there is an event even they take blood pee what ever and it took them years to find out

Also the guy had cancer people can't be too sure that the meds he took could of been steroids to help him get better

My whole point of it is these people waste years with hardly no evidence now once he comes out on Oprah he is guilty I just think he did it to shut everyone up already i still think this is just a farse to put someone down that was a winner you may not agree with me or what ever but seriously to take this long to catch him doing something when he was in plain view just makes me think it is more about personal gain then anything else
