Anderson Cooper on Lance Armstrong Doping Scandal: "He Was a Complete Jerk About This For Years and Years"By Jillian Bowe on January 16, 2013
Don’t expect Anderson Cooper and disgraced cyclist Lance Armstrong to go bike riding anytime soon. On Wednesday's episode of Anderson, Cooper and guest co-host Dari Alexander discussed Armstrong copping to using performance-enhancement drugs in an upcoming interview with Oprah Winfrey.

He would go after and try to destroy the people who were telling the truth and people who were telling the truth would get anonymous death threats. Even the guy from the anti-doping agency got anonymous email death threats; it's not known who it's from.
