No matter your feelings of him as a person, i will always be grateful to him for helping to bring "60 Minutes" into the collective consciousness of people everywhere.

Godspeed and a gentle rebirth to you Mike.

He may not have been 'the nicest guy', but he sure did ask the right questions. Sometimes journalists have to be less than polite to get at the bottom of issues. I miss real journalism. RIP Mr. Wallace.

When you consider the weak kneed reporting and underestimating numbers attending Occupy events, it was nice to know once reporters like Mike would go after the story. Occupy is NOT some flash in the pan event, nor is it a bunch of loons with nothing to do. The media is owned by the 1%, but we will not give up.

What an amazing life he had! He interviewed EVERYONE who was ANYONE in positions of prominence.

We are coming to the of the road in terms of living journalists;I don't mean news reporters.
I haven't watched 60 Minutes in years as slowly the true journalists have died off. You have a 12 minute piece -what are you going to get out of him/her, what will be the public's perception of that person after the interview is done? There have only been a handful of journalists who could do this. Wallace was one of those people.
Interviewing today, has been reduced to Oprah(who has her fine points), Ellen, and the like.

Mr. Wallace's impact on generations of Americans as a force of integrity cannot be overlooked. we were privileged to grow in consciousness due to his direct authentic reporting.
Thank you Mr. Wallace!
