Today, Jian talked to journalist Bill Gifford about his article about Lance Armstrong and his cancer charity LiveStrong in the latest issue of Outside.

Gifford says there's a widespread misperception that LiveStrong funds medical research. He says the charity does some valuable work for people with cancer. But he argues that, overall, it seems to be more about burnishing the seven-time Tour de France winner's image than fighting the disease.
