Lance Armstrong's attorneys demanded an on-air apology from "60 Minutes" for their May 22 report on allegations that the cyclist was a long-time doper during his career. CBS News has refused to do so and stands by the accuracy of its reporting.
In the investigation, Armstrong's teammate Tyler Hamilton told "60 Minutes" that Armstrong had provided him with banned substances and that Armstrong had positive drug tests disappear from his record. Armstrong's lawyers contend that the report only shows one side of the story and that producers were informed of all the allegations being false.
Jeff Fager, head of CBS News, released a letter that was sent to Armstrong's lawyers, refuting their charges against "60 Minutes." He went on to inform the lawyers that their accusations of false reporting were exaggerations and that Armstrong's rebuttals were "fairly and accurately included in the story."
