The interview apparently went on for a full two-and-a-half hours and will be edited down to 90 minutes, but fortunately, the only thing that matters has leaked, and it fits easily in a single tweet. According to an AP source, Armstrong confessed to Oprah that he did indeed use performance-enhancing drugs. Following the earlier tearful stops on his apology tour, who expected that bombshell, aside from every person on earth?
AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — AP Source: Lance Armstrong confesses to Oprah Winfrey that he used performance-enhancing drugs.

Frankly, I'm still more shocked about the news that Al Roker pooped his pants at the White House than I am that Lance Armstrong doped.

This is not breaking!!! “@newstalk1010: BREAKING: AP Source says Lance Armstrong admits he used performance enhancing drugs

I'm not sure Lance Armstrong's admission is worthy of prime-time. It's like admitting the Pope is Catholic. #NoNewsHere

Lance Armstrong admitting to doping surprises me as much as if LeBron James admitted he was balding.

"I AM SO SHOCKED LANCE ARMSTRONG USED PERFORMANCE-ENHANCING DRUGS!" …said nobody ever.

Really don't care about Lance Armstrong's confession, we already knew. Let me know when OJ is ready, then I will pay attention.

Lance Armstrong apparently admitted to doping. In other news, OJ has been acquitted of murder.

Lance Armstrong was doping? *gasp* What's next? Finding out that Pete Rose bet on baseball?

Lance Armstrong confession is as interesting as OJ admitting guilt. We knew you were a lying narcissist long ago. Stop giving him attention.

And so begins Lance Armstrong's carefully orchestrated attempt to apologise his way back to having a career.

Raise your hand if Lance Armstrong's confession is actually shocking or surprising news.
— Amelia Stanley (@Reeses2020) January 15, 2013
OK, it is news to some people who wanted to believe Armstrong was telling the truth.

Lance Armstrong admits to cheating is not really the surprise. The surprise is that it took him this long.

Speaking of taking a long time, who else is sitting down for an interview this month?
