More arsehole than hero

Journalist David Walsh knew, back in 1999, that Lance Armstrong was a cheat, a liar, and a bold litigious arsehole.  He had to wait another 13 years for the cycling fraternity to come clean and dismantle the myth.

It's an ugly story about an ugly, manipulative man.  Lance Armstrong is no hero.

The story of Armstrong and of those who insisted on telling the truth about him illustrates why we all need to be vigilant in defending free thought, free speech, and hold tight to skepticism when all those around us are demanding meek conformity.
