Remembering Mike Wallace, Icon of Broadcast Investigative Journalism

Original post made by Too bad on Apr 8, 2012

Sorry to hear that Mike Wallace passed away over the weekend. Who can forget those classic 60 minutes episodes and Mike Wallace and the camera crew chasing the target of the interview down some hallway?

Here is a video of Mike Wallace highlights --

He will be missed.

This man was sharp. It's interesting that his son, Chris Wallace, and he were on the different sides politically.

What truly amazed me were the people that allowed themselves to be interviewed by him. It tells you that megalomania minds (delusional) such as Putin, Ayatollah Khomeini, et al think that they can stand up to someone like Mike Wallace, a person that they cannot shoot or jail.

Bless Mike.
