The anti-doping official who investigated Lance Armstrong for years and issued the report that torpedoed his cycling career now tells CBS News Armstrong lied in his interview with Oprah. He’s also giving Armstrong a deadline to come clean. Anderson Cooper talks to Betsy Andreu, wife of former Armstrong teammate Frankie Andreu, and New York Times sports reporter Juliet Macur.
Anderson Cooper interviews Sebastian Junger about his film that remembers fearless photojournalist Tim Hetherington who was killed in Misrata, Libya in 2011. "Which Way Is the Front Line from Here? The Life and Time of Tim Hetherington" will air on HBO in April.
What everyone’s talking about:
The week began with President Barack Obama’s inauguration. From the oath to the balls, we took a look at highlights of the 57th Presidential Inauguration. One part of the ceremony featured Richard Blanco, the first Latin American and openly gay man to deliver the inaugural poem. President Obama gave a speech that left many talking afterwards about his agenda for the next four years – Paul Begala, Margaret Hoover, Alex Castellanos and Van Jones discussed the politics of the address. But politics aside, one of the most talked about moments of the night was when First Lady Michelle Obama stepped out in a red chiffon and velvet Jason Wu gown – the second Wu design she’s worn for an inaugural ball. Anderson spoke to the humble Wu who said he’s not a celebrity, just a “dressmaker.”
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified before Congress on Wednesday on the Benghazi, Libya attack that killed four Americans on September 11, 2012. The hearing was tense with many fiery exchanges. CNN’s Fran Townsend called it “a waste of time.”
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
