Sally Jenkins is a Washington Post columnist and wrote Lance’s books, It’s Not About the Bike and Every Second Counts. She wrote a column on Saturday in the Washington Post titled, Why I’m not angry at Lance Armstrong. With those qualifications, you’d think she would be something special, but no, she’s a complete tool. Here is the link, you should read it and then read the following rebuttals.
I would love to rip Sally, but I don’t have the intellectual ability to do it anywhere nearly as good as the following. One is here at A Twisted Spoke. This pretty much sums up just about everything I was thinking as I was reading the original article. Or you can read David Walsh’s response here.
I have a hard time believing that the Washington Post would print something so misleading and generally one sided as this. They lost a bunch of credibility in my opinion. There must be some behind the scenes political stuff going on. Whatever the reason, it goes to show that you shouldn’t give credence to everything you read in reputable newspapers.
Well, I can say one thing for her. Once Sally Jenkins make a friend, she is a friend for life and will overlook nearly everything that was the basis of the friendship originally. I’m not sure if that makes her just gullible or just ignorant. Either way, I don’t want her to be writing columns for the Washington Post in the future.
Here is a CSPAN video of her. I didn’t watch it. I really have no desire to hear anything she has to say about much of anything.
