I remember him when he and his 1st(I think) wife Buff Cobb did table interviews of celebrities at NYC night clubs on “Radio”. Loooong time ago. Sort of like “Regis and Kathie” but without the video. That format has been endemic to NYC forever.

“If you saw that American Soldiers were walking into an ambush, would you warn them, Mr. Wallace?”

“No.”

Depends...

8th Level: The Eighth Circle of Hell The Eighth Level of Hell is for those guilty of fraud: the thieves, liars, cheats, sorcerers and false prophets.

9th Level: The Ninth Circle of Hell Treachery is punished in the 9th and lowest level of hell. Those who have betrayed a special relationship in committing their crimes are condemned to the lowest and most horrific level.

it was a long time ago but iirc it was a PBS FrontLine round table about reporting on war and went somethinmg like this...

A uniformed Captain ask Mike Wallace if he would let a US patrol get killed in the ambush he was reporting on from the other side.

He replied he probably would keep quiet because he was a reporter and not a combatant. He was then ask if the ambush was blown and now he was captured and screaming for help, should the soldiers rescue him to which he said "yes he was still a citizen."

The Captain raised his arm and pointed the stump of a wrist where his hand should be and said "Mister, we'd do it, and some good men would probably get killed… and you AREN"T WORTH IT!!!"
Needless to say he had no reply, you could hear a pin drop.

In 2005, he brought out his memoir, “Between You and Me.”

Among those interviewing him about the book was son Chris, for “Fox News Sunday.” His son asked: Does he understand why people feel a disaffection from the mainstream media?

“They think they’re wide-eyed commies. Liberals,” the elder Wallace replied, a notion he dismissed as “damned foolishness.”

Yes, a pioneer of the destructive, lurid, LEFTIST journalism of today.

A fool and a vengeful, malicious fool.

Need to find out where he will be buried, so that I may be able to go and out of respect, leave a token of my appreciation, after a few beers.

Need to practice for Fonda.

The ambivalence I feel is poignant to say the least. Chris came out pretty good but Mike did a lot of bad things when he invented/perfected the “jump out from behind a bush and gotcha” mode of “investigative reporting.”

As with all, I leave it to God to judge his soul but I personally won’t bless Mike’s works.

Rest in peace and prayers for Chris and the rest of the family.

According to the obit on Wallace by the Associated Press, he described his politics as "moderate."

Maybe it was because he reached his peak in an earlier era, but I don't seem to recall him as the kind of lefty propagandist that's commonly employed by CBS News nowadays.

We may hope that he found a path to the Lord — who gave him over 90 years to find it.
And let’s hope he was at least rated to enter purgatory. None should be lost.
Godspeed, fool. ABH! (Anywhere but hell.)

I don't know how many pieces of his I've seen where his crew would haul a camera up to the front door of some business and begin filming while Wallace browbeat his way in.

Sincerely, R.I.P. Mike Wallace, but I can't get that image out of my mind: just Wallace, the cameraman, the cameraman's shadow on the sidewalk, the Gates of Heaven, St. Peter... Man, what I wouldn't give to see that.

Condolensces to the family. Chris Wallace strikes me as a decent enough guy, his politics may be different than mine, certainly his dad’s were.

But even with that, I’d feel uncomfortable coming onto a thread and making some of the comments I read here.
RIP Mike Wallace.

I know the Judeo-Christian “American values” and basic respect for the family should override the cat calls and “hope he burns in Hell” DU and Firedoglake gave Breitbart...but Breitbart was on the side of truth and Wallace was an old Media New World Order Commie who profited off the system he fought his entire life to destroy, along with Jennings, Rather, Kronkite to the present lying Lib newsrooms across the US, especially in NYC.

Mike Wallace, dead at 93, to be buried in Red Square, where his idols are buried.

Well, we used to be under the illusion that we had a free press and that they told the truth... since that cover is blown forever and the evil of their treachery is known by all... sympathy for dead commies and traitors on FR is in short supply. I said RIP commie... that is as nice as it gets from me for a presstitute.
