    Mike Wallace, `60 Minutes' star interviewer, dies
    April 8, 2012, 9:40 AM EST
    NEW YORK (AP) -- CBS newsman Mike Wallace, the dogged, merciless reporter and interviewer who took on politicians, celebrities and other public figures in a 60-year career highlighted by the on-air confrontations that helped make "60 Minutes" the most successful primetime television news program ever, has died. He was 93.
    Wallace died Saturday night, CBS spokesman Kevin Tedesco said.

    Until he was slowed by heart surgery as he neared his 90th birthday in 2008, Wallace continued making news, doing "60 Minutes" interviews with such subjects as Jack Kevorkian and Roger Clemens. He had promised to still do occasional reports when he announced his retirement as a regular correspondent in March 2006.

    Wallace said then that he had long vowed to retire "when my toes turn up" and "they're just beginning to curl a trifle. ... It's become apparent to me that my eyes and ears, among other appurtenances, aren't quite what they used to be."
    Among his later contributions, after bowing out as a regular, was a May 2007 profile of GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, and an interview with Kevorkian, the assisted suicide doctor released from prison in June 2007 who died June 3, 2011, at age 83.

    why should black people care about a white man who took advantage of opportunities that were denied us and put a racist son on fox news?
    do you really make an equivalence? really?

    Ahhh. Okay, i have to give Mike a little credit. Back in the day, he did interviews with many important black people including Malcolm X. And of course Martin Luther King.

    sigh

    In that he was 93, the only people that had an opportunity back then were wasps. You are misrepresenting the facts.
