Now that Lance Armstrong has been stripped off his seven Tour de France titles, several people have been wondering what Washington Post sports writer Sally Jenkins, who has written two books with Armstrong, thinks about the revelations. And now we know: Apparently, she’s not thinking about it much.
In an email to blogger Jim Romenesko, Jenkins claims that she has been too busy writing another book to read the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency’s report. As for whether she’ll revisit Armstrong, whose character she energetically defended in an August column for the paper, Jenkins is equally noncommittal.
“If my editors ask me to write when I come back from the book project, I will discuss it with them,” Jenkins writes to Romenesko. “Until then my thoughts remain my own.”
