Video: First look at Lance Armstrong's interview with Oprah

A short promo for Oprah’s interview with Lance Armstrong has been released.

Unfortunately, there is very little to be learned from it besides the fact that Oprah loves a little dramatic suspense.

Let’s hope Armstrong actually says something in the interview.

    Just watched the first half of the interview. I didnt like how it was cut, he came across disingenuous and Oprah was smug for having the interview. An interview like that should be held like a witness deposition. And he spent a lot of time justifying himself and and it felt like he was only giving half-truths. He was federally investigated for breaking the law, and he has now admitted to that, why hasn’t he been arrested?

    “Tonight, Lance Armstrong finally acknowledged that his cycling career
    was built on a powerful combination of doping and deceit. His admission
    that he doped throughout his career is a small step in the right
    direction. But if he is sincere in his desire to correct his past
    mistakes, he will testify under oath about the full extent of his doping
    activities.” – Travis Tygart, head of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency

    “He’s gone halfway, he’s told us he took drugs, he’s told us how long he
    took drugs. He swears categorically he’s never taken drugs since `05,
    since his comeback period. But that’s all behind us now. Where did he
    get the drugs from? Where did all the big money go to pay for those
    drugs? Because it’s very, very expensive to buy EPO. Who gave him the
    knowhow, the wherewithal to do it?” – Cycling commentator Phil Liggett
    to the Australian Broadcasting Corp

    “It didn’t go far enough. … He has to name names. … He is probably
    the biggest cheat sport has ever known.” – David Walsh, a long-time
    Armstrong critic, to the BBC.
