Mike Wallace 1918-2012

Mike Wallace, journalist and one of the original correspondents for CBS’ 60 Minutes, died yesterday at the age of 93. He amassed 21 Emmy awards during his career, as well as five DuPont-Columbia journalism and five Peabody awards. Wallace was perhaps most well-known for his brilliant interviews, which were more like cross examinations, forceful and to the point. Apparently, one of his own personal favorite interviews was the one of pianist Vladimir Horowitz, which he conducted in 1977. Please see below.
