(yeah, sure, it's Sky doing the reporting too, but I can believe that LA affects the news cycles () for US readers
Heheh that's really some "interview"... or probably it's just Armstrong who knows how to deal with certain PR stuff, and tell things certain people would want to hear. :) On the other hand, even if "he feels so bad that he's reason why innocent Froome needs to deal with this shi**t", he tweets "Clearly Froome/Porte/Sky are very strong. Too strong to be clean? Don't ask me, I have no clue." Of course he's smart enough not to accuse anyone directly, but you can get idea if you read between the lines ;)
Precisely my point. LA knew exactly what he was doing, did it, and is now busy keeping himself within the public eye. The people and media that think LA still has anything to say about the sport went bonkers with a story they knew how to exploit. And so we have an 'imbalance', one that is created out of lazy reporting, confirmation bias, and astroturf.
