Mike Wallace RIP

Legendary journalist and “60 Minutes” icon Mike Wallace died Saturday in a care facility in Connecticut. He was 93.

I can’t think of another journalist who could interrogate and cross-examine interview subjects the way Wallace did, making “60 Minutes” must-watch TV for more then a generation. Wallace’s death follows the death of another pillar of “60 Minutes,” Andy Rooney, who died back in November a month after delivering his last show-closing essay.

Here are some of the first cartoons to memorialize Wallace. I’ll add more as they come in…

One reply on “Mike Wallace RIP”

I see the Yahtzee forming. my own dry joke was "The last Great Miracle… Mike Wallace and a camera crew came to the Pearly Gates to see God, and He didn't flinch."
