The former queen of daytime television, Oprah Winfrey, is sitting down with disgraced competitive cyclist Lance Armstrong to discuss his doping scandal. Winfrey herself has said that this is her "biggest interview yet."
Canadians can watch the two-part interview on OWN Canada (if they subscribe) on both January 17 and 18 at 9 p.m. EST and 8 p.m. CT. For those who don't subscribe to the channel, the interview will be streaming online worldwide on Oprah.com. Winfrey was so worried about the security of the interview's content that she brought the interview tapes to her studio herself.
Not that the talk-show maven hasn't offered enough tantalizing details already: over the past week, the public has been made aware that the cycling superstar has indeed confessed to doping, but "not in the manner" she expected.
As the Sydney Morning Herald posits, this may be one of the most carefully manicured media moments in recent history.
