We lost a great one here. Mike asked the questions those of us sitting in our living rooms would ask. He got the the crux, and he did so quickly. There was no “fluff” with him, he shot from the shoulder, and as he did, he endeared himself to us.

Mike Wallace made people sweat. Politicians, celebrities, pro athletes, convicted criminals, dictators. Anybody, everybody.

In his 60 years with CBS, Wallace became the consummate interviewer, the master of on-air confrontations. And he partnered with producer Don Hewitt to make “60 Minutes” the most successful primetime TV news program of all time.

Wallace died Saturday at a nursing home in New Canaan, Conn., where he had lived in recent years. He was 93, only five years into retirement.
