Mike Wallace passes away

Aw. This is sad, but nobody can say this guy didn't live a good life!

60 Minutes correspondent Mike Wallace passed away on Saturday night at 93-years-old. The newsman was the first staff member on the CBS show when it began in 1968 and earned 21 Emmy awards before retiring in 2006.

His merciless reporting became part of major Hollywood productions like The Insider, in which Russell Crowe played tobacco industry whistle-blower Jeffrey Wigandwhere, who was interviewed by Wallace on 60 Minutes in 1995. The reporter was also a character in the stage production of Frost/Nixon.

He is survived by an outstanding legacy in journalism — including five Peabody awards — as well as a wife, a son, and two stepchildren.

Rest in peace, Mike!

    Cronkite is the Godfather and Mike Wallace was his 'Fake But Accurate Reporting' son in the field of journalistic propaganda.

    Glad Wallace is is dead.
    Wallace is responsible for initially opening my eyes about journalists on tv lie.
    -
    You people needed to be around in 1978 and early '80's.
    A huge scandal of these same great "investigative journalists" blowing up cars but they were the ones making them blow up. No shit.
    Mike Wallace and Don Hewitt were in the middle of it.
    -
    Now, we have the successor, Brian Williams over at NBC with the fluking fake Florida, 'Black child that looks like me' kid and the White Latinos edited film.
    -
    Williams is the big dog in this scandal.
    When Zimmerman sues the networks, it'll come out in discovery.
    -
    Fluke you, you creeps. You're all corrupt.
    Killing America, one story at a time, to fit your lame idealogy.

    I like how you always say 'passed away'. Dead @ 93, for example feels harsh to me. R.I.P.Re: luvs2hustle – Didn't go to church today huh?
