Just thought I'd back this truck up and revisit this topic... Esp regarding the topic of Armstrong's massive PR machine which swiped and character assassinated basically anyone who dared accuse him of impropriety.

Read this article.. from paragraph 4 on this page (page 2). An sick insight into how Armstrong approached any potential criticism.

By comparison, the Michael J. Fox Foundation had similar revenue to Livestrong in 2008 - $40 million - and gave away $33 million of that in grants for Parkinson's research. That PR machine has done a good job huh!
