Mike Wallace Has Died

Famed 60 Minutes reporter Mike Wallace has died. He was 93.

I am not sure where he stood on the elitist spectrum, but he never digged into the heart of the government beast

But, early in his career, he did conduct a fascinating interview with Ayn Rand.


  1. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend this video which shows how Mike Wallace dishonestly edited an interview with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Unfortunately for Wallace, (who won an Emmy for the piece) the entire *UNEDITED* interview was aired on C-Span, laying Wallace's war propaganda bare.

  2. Love the interview he did with Rod Serling.. This was 1959 and pre 60 minutes... Love that they were so candid and both smoking on air! LOL

  3. Interesting that Wallace mentions "the current system of capitalism modified by government regulation". It seems that it was common understanding then that the economic system was NOT capitalist.

    Today, you'd be hard-pressed to convince anyone that our economy isn't capitalist.

  4. What, is Drudge on a holiday?
