“A heck of a run undermining this great nation. I will never forgive this communist POS for stating in an open panel he would allow American soldiers to die to maintain his “objectivity”

Well I imagine ole Mike’s trying to splain it to God today.

“and he was Hispanic”

Was he the good Hispanic or the White Hispanic...???
Otherwise, everyone here knows that the group known as “Hispanic” is a made up. Its origin can be traced historically all the way back to the 1960’s..???

:) Viva la Nixon!

So? Big deal. Everyone dies. Some people contribute more to the world than others while here.

Until someone shows me evidence otherwise, Mike Wallace didn’t do much of the stuff for which I believe people should be remembered fondly.

My mother in law died Friday at 90. The list of people whose lives she touched in a genuinely positive way is almost endless. And she didn’t have to lie and destroy the lives of innocent people to do it.

Nuff said.

"In 1995, Mike Wallace on CBS 60 Minutes interviewed then-President Radovan Karadzic. When President Karadzic brought up the atrocities committed by Croatians, Hitler's ally during World War II, Mike Wallace reared back in his chair and incredulously said, "But SIR! That was over 50 years ago!"

How ironic that a man of Jewish descent would make such a statement, as though "NEVER AGAIN," did not apply to the extermination of Serbs during World War II and therefore, their genocide was of no real significance. "

It's possible Wallace had the longest run in the history of television, and he was Hispanic.

I thought he was Jewish.

Don’t know why the other FReeper thought Wallace was Hispanic. He was born in Brookline, Massachusetts to Russian Jewish immigrant parents, Frank and Zina (Sharfman) Wallace. The family’s surname was originally Wallik.
