Since years, many people/organizations have asked him to come clean but now I don't get why he chose Oprah in the first place. This sounds a lame choice to me. Anyway, his vehement-denial-later-confess story sounds similar to Richard Virenque aka known as the Darling of the France.
Where would you have preferred that he get interviewed?
Confrontattion is not necessarily a good avenue for this.
The man is admiting to doping, the only big question remaining to ask is why he did what did, betraying the confidence of so many friends, families, charitable organization, and letting down the country and US cycling he professes to represent.
As I wrote in another post, if anyone wants to see a public flogging or prosecution or humiliation, then don't watch Oprah.
That is not her style
Most importantly, he broke enormous trust of cycling fans (tens of millions). Thus he ceased to exist for me. I simply can't believe he did all that crap. Personally I wish either FBI or USADA slaps a case against him on multiple-counts (for perjury, bribes, intimidation etc)
I wish there some avenue for the federal goverment investigate and take some punitive action, but I doubt the US goverment can has any juridiction.
But again I could be wrong.
USA Cycling could administer more punishment in addtition to the measures the international cyclcing body already took.
If he had won national titles during that time period, he should be stripped of the titles.
If any awards was named after his name sake, it should be rescinded.
The sponsors have already derserted him.
To give a chance to charity ,Live Strong, to survive, he has resigned from ti, but I doubt it will continue.
My guess is it will fades and die as the fund rasing slowly dries up without his trong personality.
For good or bad, now for bad, he was really a one man powerhouse. Charming potential sponsors, intimadating potential enemies.
