The men who would be king - OLN

I cant see it anywhere on the TV listings. Have they pulled it because of the Landis situation?

Yeah, 5 or 6 days before air the biggest scandal in tour history completely blind-sides their TDF recap feature. I've been just shaking my head at how ill equipped OLN is for things like this. It is a huge missed opportunity, too bad OLN can't shift gears as quick as events do.

OLN couldn't figure out how to say the word "Armstrong" every five minutes during the recap given the current situation. So they pulled the program.

Maybe Trek pulled their sponsorship. Should have been "The Man Who Would Be Deposed"
