Roger Clemens has now told essentially the same story to Mike Wallace on "60 Minutes." What did he say he used?
Lidocaine and [vitamin] B-12. It's for my joints, and B-12 I still take today, Clemens told Wallace in the interview.
So, who do we believe? Clemens' former trainer, Brian McNamee, had his story corroborated by Andy Pettitte, who admitted to using HGH.
As journalists, how do we cover people who could be caught in a lie without getting caught up in the situation ourselves?
Few situations have existed like the steroid story where journalists could have outed players for years, but never had the facts straight or the guts to do it. Buster Olney of ESPN.com, for one, has partially blamed himself and his colleagues for the lack of fortitude to cover the steroid issue better, earlier.
How do we cover the issue better so this doesn't happen again? Did journalists get caught being fans first and professionals second with their coverage of the situation?
