Breaking on Fox
Film at 11...
we should all live that long...
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.
This was his best work:
RIP Mike Wallace
Mike Malice was his nickname back in the day.
“If you saw that American Soldiers were walking into an ambush, would you warn them, Mr. Wallace?”
Dead . . .
..considering the day,I’ll reserve my comment.
If you saw that American Soldiers were walking into an ambush, would you warn them, Mr. Wallace?
I’d forgotten about that.
Rest in peace.
Which circle of Hell is reserved for journalists?
Ernie Pyle, he wasn't.
Mike Wallace, Peter Jennings Admit They Would Help Enemy Kill U.S. Soldiers To “Get Story!”
Another traitor dead.
As long as we are mobile and healthy.
Now I know what will be leading the news for the next month.....
Prayers for his family. Alway hard to see good people pass away no matter the age.
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.
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.”
He was Jewish. I don’t think he celebrated Easter.
Rest in Peace Mike.
Yes, a pioneer of the destructive, lurid, LEFTIST journalism of today.
A fool and a vengeful, malicious fool.
God rest his soul.
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.
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.
RIP in piece Mike.
And...no once cares!
The excesses of one generation become the norms of the next...until it all collapese.
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.)
The one and only thing you ever need to know about the man. Nothing else need ever be said.
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.
I can’t believe some of the replies here. Such hatred. It looks like as if this is DU
I agree Kaslin. FR used to be above such animosity on threads about a death. Not any more apparently..
Gates of Hell
Rot in hell you anti American scumbag
One vet who would not aid this POS if he was lying wounded in a firefight
RIP commie... what is the frequency mister wallace?
“Such hatred. “
I am not going to wish anyone well that wished me harm and tried to do me harm. He was a Communist that did my nation harm.
BTW I hear about Catcher mitt I lost all respect of Mike Wallace when he ask Rod Serling what is Twilight Zone WTF
