Lance Armstrong's chat show with Oprah Winfrey may be 'completely stage-managed'

Lance Armstrong

British cyclist David Millar, who is a part of the World Anti-Doping Agency's Athlete Committee, has raised concerns that Lance Armstrong's television chat show with Oprah Winfrey next week might be completely stage-managed.

Millar said the banned cyclist would get to have his moment of truth, if that's what it will be, in front of Winfrey, but added that it won't be anything like sitting in front of a judge or a disciplinary hearing and being properly questioned about the things he has done wrong, the Sun reports. Millar added that his biggest concern is that the chat show will be completely stage-managed.

However, a spokeswoman for the Oprah show insisted Armstrong was not being paid for the interview, and added in an email that there won't be any editorial control over the show and any question could be asked. Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles by the International Cycling Union last year following a US Anti-Doping Agency report.
