CNN news published on August 22, 2016 an article on Ryan Lochte: ‘I over-exaggerated’ Olympics robbery story by Azadeh Ansari. In the following article U.S Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte has formally apologized for his immature behaviour and false accusations during the world Olympics that took place in Brazil during 2016. Lochte claimed that after a party hosted by  team France, him and his teammates were held at gun point by Brazilian police officers demanding money. 


However, the truth was that the olympians had stopped at a gas station, very intoxicated, to use the restrooms. The teammates had vandalized the bathrooms, when security came he refused to let them go and while holding a gun pointed towards the olympians. They athletes were afraid to speak to the police and offered the security a bribe.


The following article published by CNN is a credible source in my opinion because of the credibility of the author who wrote it. Azadeh Ansari is an award winning multimedia journalist for CNN. This article can also be credible because of the other similar articles published by multiple different journalists and different newspapers. Also, ABC news posted a message that Ryan Lochte’s social media account had posted on August 19th, apologizing for his unprofessional behaviour during the Olympic Games held in Brazil making this article more credible.
