NBC/NBCSN's hiring of the most infamous drug cheat & liar in sports history a fucking disgrace

NBC/NBCSN's hiring of the most infamous drug cheat & liar in sports history a fucking disgrace.
Here we go: Name the most disgraced, discredited competitor in the history of the Tour de France?

Correct!

So it stood as small surprise that NBC/NBCSN last week designated Lance Armstrong as its long-distance hook-up guest analyst for its coverage of the Tour de France.

NBC was unable to pass on the inclusion of the most infamous drug cheat and liar in sports history. But TV’s value judgments are as corrupt as its hires attest.

TV now always holds a warm, welcoming place for the worst acts. And the epidemic of mass media social insanity in service to misanthropes doesn’t end.

Perhaps the biggest drug cheat and liar in MLB history, Alex Rodriguez, is now the face and voice of two national baseball networks, ESPN and Fox. Fox made extra room for him by dumping Pete Rose!

You helped corrupt college basketball and football programs to achieve fame and fortune as a coach? TV wants you! Urban Meyer is a Fox rookie, as if he’ll be asked to explain his disreputable, criminal laden football teams at Florida then Ohio State.

Remorseless head-breaking linebacker Ray Lewis made a cash settlement with the families of the victims of a double homicide after pleading to obstruction of justice in that still-unsolved case? First he was chased and signed by ESPN, then by Fox.

That Lewis couldn’t speak a cogent sentence was irrelevant. He had bad-guy appeal, even if only wishful.

And Turner TV’s Charles Barkley, admitted problem gambler who bolted on a $400,000 casino marker but later starred in ads for a get-’em-young gambling operation and who was nabbed for a DUI en route to be serviced by a prostitute, remains in demand by all networks to lecture on what’s wrong with America.

So welcome, Lance Armstrong! To the spoilers go the spoils!
