ESPN: Motorist v. Bikes Controversy

This is spreading like wildfire through cycling forums, blogs, etc. ESPN radio talk show host, Tony Kornheiser, recently directed motorists to run into cyclists on the road when reacting to new cycling lane in Washington. His argument is based on ignorance of cyclists' right to the road. Lance Armstrong has been the most vocal of protesters, eliciting a personal apology from Kornheiser and an invitation to serve as a guest on his show. Unfortunately, like in other cases like this, the damage is nearly irreparable; the best he can do is retract his statements and hopefully educate some listeners about his mistake. But what about those who heard his original statement but will never hear his apology?

The controversial words are spoken here:
