Mike Wallace

Mike Wallace has died at 93.
To me he was 60 Minutes, enjoyed his stories with celebs and rooting out the bad guys.
He had long a long career in TV, 60 Minutes won't be the same without him.

  1. Mike Wallace spanned an era between the dawn of TV news and today's incessant, politically colored 24/7 yammering. Not quite a Walter Cronkite or Edward R. Munrow, he could be legitimately criticized for his political ideology, but he remained essentially honest.

    But we can trace today's penchant for "gotcha" journalism directly through Wallace - imitation is not only flattery, but requires exaggeration.

    Perhaps, the best accolade is that Wallace is infinitely preferable to today's crop of Limbaugh, Beck, Maddow and Olbermann.
