NYT Better Reporting on Landis

New York Times ran with the headline “Landis Fails Drug Test After Triumph in Tour de France” which is a better headline but it lead with “illegally high levels of testosterone.”  No mention by the writer of ratio except for quoting the Phonak web site. Juliet Macur also quoted Donald Catlin who runs the Olympic drug testing laboratory at U.C.L.A. “This is not a slam-dunk case,” he said of Landis’s case. “There is work to do, and if there’s ever a test that won’t repeat a positive, it will be a really complex analysis, and this is one of them.”
