Clemens and Armstrong: Who Cares about Doping?

Hosted by

A jury deliberated for just a day and a half before acquitting former Yankee pitcher Roger Clemens of lying to Congress when he denied using performance enhancing drugs. As the Wall Street Journal pointed out, the federal government offered no excuse for its failed prosecution. What about Lance Armstrong? Do sports fans really care? John Hoberman is professor at the University of Texas in Austin and author of several books including, The Olympic Crisis: Sport, Politics and the Moral Order and Testosterone Dreams: Rejuvenation, Aphrodesia, Doping.
