After years of denial, cyclist Floyd Landis admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs and claimed his former teammate, Lance Armstrong, also was doping during races.
In an exclusive "Nightline" interview in July, Landis said, "If I'm taking on Lance Armstrong, then that should be evidence enough that there's a problem with the system, because I'm saying it -- a bunch of people did it,"
Armstrong's attorney, Tim Herman, adamantly denied Landis' allegations. He went on to say that Armstrong has undergone around 300 separate competition drug tests and never tested positive.
ABC News' Neal Karlinsky reported on the millions of dollars celebrity sex tapes generate for their distributors and whether these tapes create an embarrassing crisis for Hollywood starlets, or if they catapult their careers.
Former playmate Kendra Wilkinson, socialite Paris Hilton and reality TV star Kim Kardashian are a few stars who have had their sex tapes released without their permission. Hilton's sex tape, "One Night in Paris," has reportedly generated about $20 million alone.
Pastor Terry Jones ignited an enormous controversy and international media frenzy when he declared Sept. 11, 2010 as "International Burn a Koran Day."
He threatened to mark the anniversary by burning hundreds of the holy books at his church in Gainesville, Fla. Heads of state and religion, from the Vatican to Gen. David Petraeus, urged Jones not to go through with it.
Jones sat down with ABC News' Terry Moran at his church on Sept. 7, and said he wanted to burn the Koran as "a warning to the radical element." On Sept. 9, Jones canceled the Koran burning after he claimed the proponents of the "Ground Zero Mosque" -- an Islamic cultural center planned a few blocks from the site of New York's World Trade Center -- had agreed to move it to a different site.
At the annual American Atheists Convention in July, one of atheism's premier provocateurs, Edwin Kagin, faced the crowd wielding a blow-dryer to conduct a mass "de-baptism" of his fellow non-believers.
Kagin said the heat from the blow-dryer symbolically dried up the offending waters that were sprinkled on the followers' foreheads as young children during baptism.
