Her Palmares as as Fake as His
Here is what I wrote in the comments on the Post. This actually really bothers me--she has cheated at her craft a much as he has at his, and is just as brazen.
"So now we know--Ms. Jenkins is Lance Armstrong's true partner in character.
Let me share with you some names: Gideon Haigh. Nick Tosches. Clive Gilson, Mike Pratt, Kevin Roberts and Ed Weymes. Andrew Jennings.
These are the fellow writers Sally Jenkins beat out for the 2000 William Hill Sports Book of The Year with "Its Not About the Bike.". These are the people whose honest books could not keep up the pace against the lie-fueled enhanced performance of Jenkins' narrative. These are the people whose careers might have received the boost that Sally got instead. Yet today, with the central story of her book in smoking ruins, she tells us, chin up, that she "stands by nearly every paragraph."
Just as Lance Armstrong stood on the podium while the spit dried on the face of Simeoni, so Jenkins stands on the podium to this day, clinging to her palmares won on lies, leaving the spit to dry on the faces of her competitors for the biggest prize in her profession--and on our faces as readers."
