Former President Hein Verbruggen this week criticized the media for giving too much focus to doping coverage. His view seems to be that doping in cycling is only "1 or 2%" of the sport, yet it gets 50% of the coverage. Presumably Verbruggen hasn't seen lists of his own sport's former champions, at least 50% of whom are tainted by failed tests, doping admissions and allegations. Go back on the Top 3 of every Tour since about 1992 and see how many convicted or confessed dopers there are - it certainly isn't 2%! In fact, the entire podium in some years is questionable at best, or entirely composed of dopers at worst.
