    February 9, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - In 1967, the veteran CBS journalist Mike Wallace did what today would seem revolutionary: he hosted a 43-minute documentary that exposed the stark truth about homosexuality, speaking openly of well-established facts that have since been consigned to the memory hole of political correctness. CBS Documentary - The Homosexuals (1967) Wallace’s documentary, The Homosexuals, is a frank examination of the self-destructive behavior of sexually-active homosexuals, the underlying psychological causes of their impulses, and their troubling influence on American culture. It also discusses curative therapy for homosexual orientation, which had a success rate in the 1960s of...

    CBS Reports ^ | March 7, 1967 | Mike Wallace
    "The Homosexuals" is a 1967 episode of the documentary television series CBS Reports. The hour-long broadcast featured a discussion of a number of topics related to homosexuality and homosexuals. Mike Wallace anchored the episode, which aired on March 7, 1967. Although this was the first network documentary dealing with the topic of homosexuality, it was not the first televised in the United States. That was The Rejected, produced and aired in 1961 on KQED, a public television station out of San Francisco. Three years in the making, "The Homosexuals" went through two producers and multiple revisions. The episode included interviews...

Below are clips from the interview Margaret Sanger gave to Mike Wallace in 1957. During the interview, the full version of which can be seen here, Sanger talks to Wallace about why she became an advocate for birth control, abortion, stopping so-called overpopulation, and talks about the Catholic Church, and morality.

    In 1957, an aging Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood and the international birth control movement, agreed to an interview with CBS News’ Mike Wallace. In stark contrast with the sympathetic reception Sanger could expect to receive today in a network television interview, Wallace hammered Sanger with difficult questions and caught her in contradictions, while Sanger squirmed, fidgeted, and denied statements she had made only a week earlier in pre-interview discussions with CBS staff.

    A documentary (1959) on Black Nationalism by Mike Wallace. This is the film that made Malcolm X famous. In recent years the media has become too politically correct and too intimidated by groups such as the Nation of Islam (NOI) to do honest news reporting about them. The Black Liberation Theology of Obama's sect in Chicago is an offshoot of the theology of the NOI and has similar racist concepts, holding the black race to be the "manifestation of God on earth" and equating white society to the Antichrist.

Another nominee, Mike Wallace, let it be known last month that he, too, had asked Bush to withdraw his nomination.

Last night, Communication for Barbarians Service broadcast Mike Wallace's equally meaningless interview with the Islamic Republic of Iran's fanatical leader. Interviews with evil leaders are meaningless at best and destructive at worst. Few reporters will ask real questions or challenge the propaganda responses of these leaders.

    NBC wants Mike Wallace, but does Mike Wallace want NBC? NBC News chief Steve Capus says the legendary CBS newsman can write his own ticket at 30 Rock. Wallace, in his 38th season at 60 Minutes, confirms that he and the network are talking. "I haven't made up my mind," says Wallace, who turns 88 on May 9. "I do feel a great loyalty to CBS. I've been there for 40 years. I'm there. I've been there. I want to continue to be there. "I've got to figure out my life." Wallace said in March that he would step down...

    Mike Wallace, NBC News? NBC is actively pursuing the legendary CBS newsman, news division president Steve Capus and Wallace confirmed today. "Yes, I'm talking to NBC. Even this morning," says Wallace, 87, in his 38th season on 60 Minutes. He became "correspondent emeritus" in March, when he said he would step down as a regular correspondent in late May. At the time, he said he would stay at the network and be available "for whatever chores CBS News, 60 Minutes, etc., have in mind for me." Wallace turns 88 May 9. He joined CBS in 1951, left four years later...

    Mike Wallace Wants to Interview Bush By DAVID BAUDER NEW YORK (AP) - Before he retires from "60 Minutes," Mike Wallace seems to have a better shot at interviewing the president of Iran than the president of the United States. It's not an obsession - more like a frustration - but the 87-year-old Wallace, who has interviewed every sitting president since Kennedy, is renewing his effort to sit down with President Bush. "I've never even shaken hands with the man," said Wallace, who announced last week he was retiring this spring as a correspondent for the CBS newsmagazine. Ever competitive,...

    "60 Minutes" without Mike Wallace? It's almost like "Oprah" without Oprah. But yesterday Wallace, 87, confirmed that this season on the Sunday-night CBS News program will be his last. "The time comes, for crying out loud," Wallace said from his apartment in New York. "You want to do it while you still can, under your own power." Wallace said that he plans to remain at CBS News and that he will continue to work on occasional pieces as a "correspondent emeritus." At CBS News and in the TV business generally yesterday, there was speculation that the retirement is not Wallace's...

    by Mark Finkelstein March 15, 2006 Was this a news report, or a coming attraction for a new series about inter-generational love? Perhaps there's a third explanation: a not-too-subtle kiss blown in the direction of a soon-to-be new employer. Amidst rampant speculation that Katie Couric might be leaving the Today show to anchor the CBS Evening News, Couric narrated a segment on this morning's Today on the occasion of Mike Wallace's announcement this week that he will be retiring from '60 Minutes'. If you think it's impossible to sustain a gush for five minutes, you obviously weren't watching Katie this...

    NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The acting editor in chief at the Village Voice has left the weekly alternative newspaper, two weeks after overseeing publication of an issue containing fabricated material. The Voice announced the departure of Doug Simmons on its Web site by posting a photograph of what appeared to be a paper napkin bearing a handwritten note from Village Voice Media Executive Editor Michael Lacey. ``Doug Simmons is no longer acting editor,'' the napkin said. ``Ward Harkavy, long time senior editor and Arizona crony, is now interim editor. Call us tomorrow for next update.'' In a brief telephone...

    (CBS) NEW YORK Mike Wallace, the bull-dog co-host of "60 Minutes" since its premiere, announced today he will retire as he approaches his 88th birthday. Wallace said he's getting too old to travel and to maintain the busy schedule required of 60 Minutes correspondents. “I’ve often replied, when asked, ‘I’ll retire when my toes turn up’," said Wallace. “Well, they’re just beginning to curl a trifle, which means that, as I approach my 88th birthday, it’s become apparent to me that my eyes and ears, among other appurtenances, aren’t quite what they used to be. And the prospect of long...

    'Minutes' man gets Rather curt CBS legend Don Hewitt hasn't been shy about criticizing Dan Rather, but the grand old man of "60 Minutes" had stopped short of publicly recommending termination for the central figure in CBS News' painful 2004 Memogate flap. Until yesterday. "Should Dan Rather have been fired?" Time magazine managing editor Jim Kelly asked the 83-year-old Hewitt during a Court TV journalism panel at Michael's. "Yes," Hewitt answered. He suggested that the 74-year-old Rather - a "60 Minutes" correspondent since stepping down last March as "Evening News" anchor - was politically motivated in airing a controversial pre-election...
