Armstrong Lawyers Demand On-Air Apology From ‘60 Minutes’

Lance Armstrong’s attorneys demanded an on-air apology from CBS Corp.’s “60 Minutes” following accusations that Armstrong tested positive for a banned substance at the 2001 Tour of Switzerland cycling race.

Attorneys John Keker and Elliot Peters write in the May 31 letter, a copy of which was provided to Bloomberg News, that the accusations by former Armstrong teammate Tyler Hamilton are “incorrect, false and broadcast in error.” Hamilton’s interview was featured May 22 on “60 Minutes.”
