Mike Wallace Obits (Video)

When someone like Mike Wallace dies, you feel the loss.

That’s because the CBS “60 Minutes” newsman, who died at 93 after a long illness, fearlessly practiced a level of rigorous stand-up journalism that rarely exists anymore. Few institutions–even “60 Minutes” itself, which keeps on ticking, still compelling and watchable every Sunday– are willing to fight the power the way Wallace did, week after week, year after year, decade after decade. 

He will be missed. Who else is as well-researched and demanding? You tell me. Next to him folks like Keith Olbermann look like featherweights. 

Here’s an excellent A.P. obit. And the BBC. And a CBS News video. UPDATE: And an archive of Wallace interviews.

I am 52 years old and Mike Wallace has been in my life the entire time.
Incredible newsman, I will miss him.

I grew up watching Mr. Wallace on TV…my whole life! He was the person we could go to for the truth, the plain, hard truth. My prayers and thoughts are with his family.
