Mike Wallace, RIH: No Tears for Anti-Israel, Anti-American Propagandist & Liar

By Debbie Schlussel

Count me out of the parade of morons mourning scumbag propagandist Mike Wallace. 

He was no journalist.  Just a smug, arrogant, agenda-driven fraud who said he admired mass-murderer Yasser Arafat and went out of his way to defame Israel and American patriots who served our country.

Rot In Hell (w/ Your “Good-Looking,” “Soulful-Eyed” ManCrush), Schmuck

The man was a lying, bigoted, anti-Israel, America-hating piece of crap who compared Israel to Islamic terrorists, lionized the Palestinians, never asked tough questions to Yasser Arafat, and crucified Israeli leaders, like Menachem Begin.  And that’s not to mention how this cretin deliberately defamed a real American patriot, General William Westmoreland, for his role in the Vietnam War, which Wallace and his fellow liberals were against. He attacked America while we were in Vietnam and helped us lose the war in the media while we were winning it on the ground. He attacked Ronald Reagan, the Shah of Iran, business owners, and every other force of stability and or good in America and the world, helping to usher them out.

I find it interesting that missing from the eulogies and beatifications for this schmuck, Wallace, are his jokes about how Blacks and Hispanics would easily get ripped off by the California banks because  it’s hard to understand contracts “if you’re reading them over watermelon or tacos.”  (This charlatan invoked his long-forgotten and self-despised Jewish heritage to get out of the flap over his dumb comments.) But liberals like him can–and did–get away with this stuff.  Because, hey, he did years of sympathetic interviews with Yasser Arafat and other liberal pet figures, so anything goes.  Read some excerpts of Wallace interviews with Arafat.  They couldn’t have been more soft and uncritical.

Also missing from the remembrances of Wallace are that he usually got the facts wrong, in addition to skewing his reports to his agenda.  For example, if you watch the sympathetic video, below, of Wallace describing the Palestinians “struggle,” and showing Israelis as morally equivalent to these bloody terrorists, you’ll note that Wallace reported Yasser Arafat’s birthplace as Jerusalem.  Reality check:  Arafat was born in Cairo, Egypt.


And he lied about numerous other things.  In the video, Wallace shows his friend, Kamal Nasser, the late PLO spokesman, saying that “Zionists invented terrorism.”  Wallace never questions it, and in fact, makes that his narrative, telling us about “Jewish terrorists,” as he grills late Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and invokes the King David Hotel bombing.  But he fails to note that the King David Hotel was only bombed after phone call warnings left by the Irgun seven days before that they were going to bomb it.  There was ample warning to the British that it was a target.  It was done because the British used the hotel as their command center, had arrested 2,500 Jews, killed several innocent Jews, some of them Holocaust survivors, for absolutely no reason, and helped prop up Arab terrorists against the Jews. The British had also seized documents from the Jewish Agency about its intelligence on Arab activities, turning it over the Arabs and sending many Jewish spies to certain death. It was war.

In contrast, Wallace praises Arafat in Lebanon (a country he destroyed, as his PLO/Fatah Fedayeen raped and mass murdered thousands, most of them Shi’ite Muslims).  Wallace tells us, “Yasser Arafat drew back from confrontation, sought to hold his own hotheads in check . . . sought a ceasefire.”  HUH?!  As I’ve noted over the years, even the anti-Israel New York Times reported accurately on how Yasser Arafat sent his PLO terrorists to rape girls in front of their fathers, and murder sons in front of their families, then took over their homes en masse.  But, instead of reporting any of this, Wallace reported on, “The Palestinians of the camps, yearning for their homeland.”

In the video below, Wallace mourns the death of Yasser Arafat on “The Charlie Rose Show.”  He describes to Rose “how good-looking” Arafat was.  “He had soulful eyes . . . .  I liked him. . . .  My eyes were opened about the Palestinians.”  Seriously?  Yasser Arafat . . . good-looking?  This is what a fraud Mike Wallace was.  He just oozed fertilizer if it helped bolster his false agenda.  He also went on to tell Rose that then-Israeli Prime Minister Ariel “Sharon created the Intifada [Palestinian terrorist uprising]” by visiting the Temple Mount.  Huh?  While that was the Palestinian excuse–that an Israeli leader should not visit the holiest of Jewish sites because it offends Muslims, it was well-known and documented that Arafat and the Palestinians had planned the terrorist uprising long before and were immediately ready to go.  The speeches ginning people up were featured in Palestinian newspapers, on Palestinian TV, and in Palestinian mosques for weeks.

But that’s the point with Mike Wallace.  He never reported.  He merely lied and carefully left out or flat-out fabricated “facts” to fit his agenda.  There were stories that Wallace was paid off by the Muslims.  And I wouldn’t put that–or anything else–past him.  His anti-Israel reports were that bad and that manufactured.  My own cousin, an Israeli journalist who worked for both Israeli TV and shot footage for CBS, saw that was the case, and repeatedly complained to his friend, then-CBS President William S. Paley.  My cousin told me there were many far worse anti-Israel “reports” Wallace did that never aired because he and other Israelis complained.

The sad thing is that many Wallace reports on Israel, the Middle East, Vietnam, the American military, and plenty of other topics did air.

And most of them were just a stream of lies spread to the gullible American public, which for most of his career had only three channels to choose from and most of them were glued to his “60 Minutes” disinformation. Wallace was far worse than the Keith Olbermanns of this world because he actually pretended that what he was serving up was objective news, not the partisan, left-wing crap it really was.

At age 93, Mike Wallace lived far too long a life for the piece of dung that he was.  But, now, courtesy of G-d, he’ll get his and meet up again with his boyfriend, Yasser.

Mike Wallace, I hope you packed your summer clothes. It’s hot where you’re going.

Mike Wallace, Rot In Hell.

Finally a breath of honesty. Mike Wallace, a Jew in name only and a lying sack of crap.

His reporting on anything Jewish showed his attempt to bend over backwards to show he was not biased, or even a Jew at all (None of his wives were Jewish). Worse, he never once told the truth regarding Israel, the PLO, or any Middle East related subject.

He also constantly lied about….everything. He went for the sensational, facts be damned, and omitted or edited explanations, contradictory facts, alternative views, etc. He inserted himself in stories, and his bigoted views.

Fundamentally, the man was a psychotic, but because people like to be entertained rather than informed, people are mourning the turd’s passing.

He was no Harry Reasoner or David Brinkley.

Jonathan E. Grant on April 9, 2012 at 1:49 pm

    He’s wasn’t what I would call a mensch. When I was a young man, I thought he came came across as a self-righteous, holier than thou bastard who pretend to be better than his Western interviewees.

    To call him a journalist is a disservice to the profession.

    NormanF on April 9, 2012 at 2:09 pm

      The only thing he did good in his life was report on his treatment for depression. As a scumbag and and terrorist supporting piece of crap, he had a lot of genuine reasons to be depressed.

      As you know, Debbie, you are an exception to all rules, being simply fantastic, but I have always held that the vast majority of journos I have dealt with are only slightly above child molesters in their moral integrity. I recall being a major player in an international newsstory (Psychiatrist for the Alabama Chain Gang), and noting that every article I read on it was wrong.

      I do love what the general said about having to send good men to rescue those vermin.

      Occam's Tool on April 9, 2012 at 5:22 pm

        Here’s the you tube video of the Marine Corp Colonel telling the journos what maggots they are: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dtyDxfwG6LA.

        Wallace deserved a kick in the balls for 3 meals a day. A true worthless pissant.

        Occam's Tool on April 9, 2012 at 5:56 pm

His son is no better.

His classic interview with the late Israeli Foreign Minister Abba Eban tilted pro-Arab.

Decades later we can see Eban actually held his own quite well. There’s no mistaking Wallace sympathized with dictators, Islamic terrorists and very villain on the planet.

Like most Jews who made it he hated being a Jew and did much to distance himself from his roots.

Here’s one American who won’t miss him. Good riddance!

NormanF on April 9, 2012 at 1:50 pm

    I can’t disagree with a word you or Debbie said. As for any kind words to say about Mike Wallace, “you can include me out,” as the late, great Samuel Goldwyn used to say. The only thing we can say about Wallace is that he was relatively consistent in his hatred for Israel and his love for their enemies.

    That interview you spoke of–of Abba Eban–took place in 1958. In that interview, Wallace tried to foster the myth of “displaced Arabs,” but Wallace was clearly no match for Eban, intellectually–and certainly not spiritually and morally–if one can speak of those things when referring to Wallace.

    And when Wallace’s hero, Arafat, died, Wallace proceeded to lionize a new hero, Ahmadinijad. I’m sure that Wallace also found Ahmadinijad to be “handsome” and “attractive.” Wallace was truly a repulsive character.

    Among the past stories of Mike Wallace that have hit the media in the wake of his untimely death (in the sense that it did not come far sooner than he deserved), I could not find one of my favorites. It was a skit on Saturday Night Live in which one of the SNL cast members was made up to look exactly like Mike Wallace. In that skit, the look-alike Wallace went with his crew and cameras to the offices at 60-Minutes at CBS in order to AMBUSH the real Mike Wallace about his on-air manipulations of interviews.

    (This, of course, was the very same sort of tactic that Wallace and 60-Minutes have used for season after season, and the “idea” was to convey that because the person being ambushed was “caught,” that person’s objections to–and protests about–the ambush, were somehow “proof” that Wallace’s assertions were correct.)

    But when the real Mike Wallace was confronted by the look-alike Mike Wallace and crew, CBS vigorously protested and the real Mike Wallace was very upset with the ambush and the questioned posed to him. CBS security eventually came and forced the look-alike Wallace and crew to leave the premises immediately–just like the scenes we’ve repeatedly seen from Wallace’s own ambushes. This was a wonderful and hilarious SNL skit that put Wallace and 60-Minutes in their places. The skit is from the old days, when the writers and performers at SNL were truly top-notch.

    Ralph Adamo on April 9, 2012 at 6:31 pm

    Norman:

    FYI, I posted a link to that 1958 Abba Eban interview.

    On one occasion, they were covering Mike Wallace’s interviews with Louis Farrakhan. An interviewer asked Mike Wallace: “Do you think Louis Farrakhan is an anti-Semite?”

    Wallace did not answer the question. He certainly didn’t say “Yes”. He just offered an obfuscated answer that led the viewer to forget the original question.

    When it comes to truth in reporting, 60 minutes ran a segment on a company I was working for in the early 1980s. My company had its own video production facility and agreed to let 60 Minutes do the segment on condition that my company could video-tape all interview sessions. After 60 Minutes aired their hatchet-job, my company issued a videotape rebuttal showing what 60 Minutes had edited out of the segment. It demonstrated beyond reasonable doubt the fact that 60 Minutes was slanting their report and thus LYING.

    I never watched 60 Minutes after that.

Sensationalism versus Journalism.

Sensationalism always wins out.

Jonathan E. Grant on April 9, 2012 at 2:27 pm

The anti-American part fits, too. I remember reading about Wallace on a PBS (Palestinian Broadcasting System, a.k.a. the cat ladies’ network) panel show about journalists covering war stories in the field, and when the question came up on whether any of them, if embedded with rebels who sought to ambush American soldiers, would warn the soldiers of such a planned ambush, Wallace nonchalantly said he would not say a word and simply report on any ambush, claiming he was a “journalist first.” (Yeah, right – but he certainly qualified as an American last.) Even another pro-”Palestinian” snake, Peter Jennings, said he’d have warned our troops about planned ambushes, as an “American first” – every journalist on the panel, that is, except Wallace. More than one person has written in print and online about how they lost any and all respect for Wallace after that.

And that’s not counting his fawning interview with the Iranian Hitler, Ahmadinejad, towards the end of his career, among his other lowlights. “One-man truth squad,” indeed. More like something out of Pravda or Izvestia.

But then, prior to latching himself onto CBS News in 1963, he started out as a jack-of-all-trades, doing everything from game show hosting (“The Big Surprise”) to mindless chit-chat (“Mike and Buff,” with his then-wife Buff Cobb) to Madison Avenue pitchman (hawking Parliament cigarettes) to even what passes for acting (in a short-lived Broadway play called “Reclining Figure”). Wallace was so controversial and infamous, and his ethics and scruples shaky, even during his days hosting “The Mike Wallace Interview” for ABC in 1957, that John Charles Daly (who was that network’s VP for news and public affairs at the time) threatened to bolt one Sunday night’s “What’s My Line?” (of which he was panel moderator from its 1950 debut until its 1967 cancellation) on CBS if Wallace were put on as a mystery guest; on that night, Sammy Davis, Jr. was substituted at the last minute.

ConcernedPatriot on April 9, 2012 at 2:41 pm

    I never watched that jerk, and had not heard about his treasonous statement. I quit trusting the networks after the way they cruicified Goldwater in the ’64 campaign.

    Joel Harrell-Confederate Son on April 10, 2012 at 11:33 am

Bill Bennett was obviously no fan and spent much of his morning show explaining why not. He focused on Wallace’s stated refusal to warn American troops if he were to receive information of an ambush because of “journalistic integrity”.

Blayne on April 9, 2012 at 2:44 pm

Debbie,
Which jouralists today are NOT left wing? Or at least which ones are fair?

J: Until he began plagiarizing the work of others (including me, word for word) and then went to virtual anonymity at FOX Business Channel, I would have said, John Stossel. There are very few I can think of who are fair and not left wing . . . even at PAWNN–the Prince Al-Waleed News Network a/k/a FOX News Channel. DS

John on April 9, 2012 at 2:57 pm

Thanks for this article Debbie and BTW, happy birthday. To be honest with all of you here, I didn’t know that Mike Wallace was this vile and repugnant, I knew he leaned towards the left wing and pretty bias, etc., and I also know that he undermined our efforts in the Vietnam War 40 years ago (I wasn’t around when the Vietnam war ended, that’s how young I still am right now) causing us to lose that war by using all sorts of propaganda against our brave troops.

But I really didn’t know the man was a USA-defamer, Israel-defamer, pan-Arabist, pan-Islamist, pro-Palestine, etc. When I was a little child growing up in the 1980s, I watched the news on some occasions, and I thought Mr. Wallace was an honest person, despite me as little child never paid any attention to politics, news, etc. But as time went on and I became alot older life and paid close attention to the news, world events, politics, etc. I knew their was something sketchy and fishy about Mike Wallace, and I heard alot of conservative talk show hosts blast, ridicule and called out Mike Wallace for his positions.

Anyway DS, thanks for the information about Mike Wallace, and I to am not shedding any tears for this guy!

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on April 9, 2012 at 3:15 pm

One would have a hard time calling him a journalist. Mike Wallace was very much like Walter Cronkite in this respect. In both cases, they shamelessly pushed their ideologies in the guise of straight news presenters. Debbie has already covered his evident anti-Semitism, which was just another hallmark of his septic career.

Worry01 on April 9, 2012 at 3:31 pm

    I feel better now. For years I thought I was the only person on the planet who did NOT believe Cronkite was the most trusted man in America.

    Cronkite, Mike Wallace and their ilk were self important, puffed up leftists hiding behind the mask of so-called “Journalism.” Today, what passes for journalism makes pimping look like a noble profession. Napoleon said, “Scratch a Russian and you’ll find a Tartar.” To paraphrase Napoleon, Scratch a “Journalist,” and you’ll find what I call a “Leftophile.” Their religion is liberalism and their holy book was written by Marx. These people are the useful idiots of today. Their hatred of their own country, Israel, etc., knows no bounds. They despise Judaism and Catholicism – equal opportunity denigrators. We live in a world of propaganda, not news. The news business is inhabitated by prostitutes – and that includes Fake News channel. I read the foreign papers to find out what is happening in my country.

    Herbster on April 10, 2012 at 6:35 am

Around 20 years ago Jews praying at the Western Wall during the holiday of Sukkot in Jerusalem were stoned by a bunch of Arabs. To realize how despicable and dangerous this was, think of someone stoning you from an overapass as you drive below, only those praying were “siting ducks” and did not have the ability to drive away fast.

Mike Wallace did a story on this which somehow portrayed the Israelis as the bad guys. Wallace was such a brazen liar that he showed one group of Jews escaping through a certain exit as proof that Israel was lying (to show they were not in any real danger). The only problem was that anyone who had been in the Western Wall area and saw the footage knew the footage was taken at an exit closer to the Western Wall and that Mike Wallace was lying.

A good friend of mine was there that day and almost lost his life.

Mike Wallace – Scumbag!

I_AM_ME on April 9, 2012 at 3:31 pm

I’m surprised you didn’t call Mike Wallace a Kapo!

I’ll shed a tear for him as a fellow human being.

But right now Satan is pissed that he has to put up with this Hippie-journo drivel. He asked me if I had any aspirin to spare last night.

BTW – he also wished everyone a Chag Sameach.

The Reverend Jacques on April 9, 2012 at 4:02 pm

ConcernedPatriot, I remember the PBS program you referred to. There was an army or marine general on the panel, and they asked what he thought of Mike Wallace’s response, I paraphrase but it was something like “your integraty is all well and good, what concerns me more is that if any of you are captured by our enemies, I have to order good men, some with families, risk their lives to go out and rescue your sorry asses! I swear, every journalist on that panel visably shrunk!

sgtvinnie16 on April 9, 2012 at 4:11 pm

    I remember that very well… Debbie and I were in college in those days and Wallace was part of a panel doing a PBS retrospective on the Vietnam War and if memory serves me, he said something to the effect, a journalist’s duty is to the truth, not to one’s country and if that meant not informing the American military of Viet-Cong movements was necessary to preserve journalistic objectivity over the lives of American troops who made that press freedom possible in the first place, then the profession came before patriotism. It was really the most disgusting thing Wallace ever said on the air and the generals on the panel were genuinely outraged by it. If anything, that situation has gotten worse since the aired over a quarter of a century ago.

    That showed him to be scum without any sense of integrity but serving whatever suited the needs of the journalist, to him the government was supposed to cater to that and the journalist had no duty to the country whose soldiers were dying to give him the freedom to spread trash about them and undermine the war effort. That’s why I don’t think there’s anything decent about the man and he’s no American hero. Just the opposite.

    NormanF on April 9, 2012 at 8:10 pm

      I remember that comment by wallace. He had no shame. Thanks, Norman F., for reminding us once again that these people are the true prostitutes of the world. The lowest of the low now being lionized be the same.

      Herbster on April 10, 2012 at 6:46 am

Not gonna miss any mainstream journo-list type reporters who check out of the profession either by choice or death.

Glad their gone!

P. Aaron on April 9, 2012 at 5:33 pm

This is really how you can evaluate a blog — does it pull punches when supporters of terrorism, communism, or socialism die. The comments about Howard Zinn were a very positive example of how this blog treats our enemies upon their deaths.

I had to turn off the radio today because of all the garbage about Mike Wallace. Not quite as much about him as there was about the Runaway Bride, or the latest disaster, but close. And as was said about his son, the acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree.

Little Al on April 9, 2012 at 5:46 pm

John Stossel is more libertarian than conservative. Mike Wallace: was he the guy on 60 Minutes who used to extol the alleged virtues of the Nation of Islam all the time?

G: Yup, same guy. He’s the one who did the softball interview with Malcolm X, too. DS

Gerald on April 9, 2012 at 6:06 pm

Bravura job, Debbie. Absolutely great–and you won’t find this anywhere else.

Red Ryder on April 9, 2012 at 6:31 pm

May we all be as well informed as DS when it comes to the issues and as take-no-prisoners when it comes to the facts, personal opinion and the bottom line.

We have had far too much equivocation and PC crapola. Fresh air, indeed!

I knew he was NOT a good guy but this post was enlightening. What a repugnant human being.

Was not his real forname Wallechinsky? Was he related to David? (I think David is dead but I could be wrong).

THIS is where we get the good guts. I came across an article written this weekend by a Jewish woman from Israel who wrote of why she had to leave Israel…and it was allllll the Zionists fault and their heavy-hand. Of course this big-mouth made sure the lefty website dismantled comments. I decided not to read her boring column then since she wanted her say but didn’t want the blowback.

Idiots like the dead Mike Wallace and that self-hating Israeli do NOT fool me. Even when uninformed I knew the crap said about Israel was a bunch of horsesh**. That’s why these pukes make me so angry. They are NOT fooling me! And should be called what they are and as loud as we can muster!

Skunky on April 9, 2012 at 6:54 pm

    Mike Wallace’s family’s original surname was Wallich, and therefore of no relation to David Wallechinsky (who, alas, is still around – he’d once co-written “What Really Happened to the Class of ’65?” with the execrable Michael Medved). I remember one host (can’t recall, however, if it was talk radio or cable access TV) who always referred to Wallace as “Mike Wallich,” calling attention to his status as a self-hating Judenrat kapo and his aforementioned anti-Israel, pan-Arabist bias / “man-crush” on Arafat.

    CP: Every single report I’ve read over the years and since his death notes that the Wallace family name was originally Wallechinsky, not Wallich. DS

    ConcernedPatriot on April 9, 2012 at 8:20 pm

      Thank you CP! I enjoyed your info!

      Skunky on April 9, 2012 at 8:28 pm

Oh, and Mike Wallace was prolly one of the reasons why Michael Savage ingeniously re-named “60 Minutes” into “59 Minutes: One Minute Away From The Truth”.

And Mike Wallace, if he thought Arafat was “good-looking” (barf!!!!!!), was one of those demented and deluded sorts who thought FLOTUS was “beautiful” (Ack!).

Skunky on April 9, 2012 at 7:06 pm

i remember that liar from when i was a paratrooper in viet nam where he said we were losing.this was in 1968 during their tet holiday when the nva attacked us in the cities and other places.but contrary to what Wallache and Cronkite were saying we rolled over the commie army.then destroyed the so called viet cong.we were not surprised by the attack because we had captured the plans for the operation and were waiting for them and they took a beating.they lost over 50,000 troops and could not mount an operation like that for 5yrs.it wasn’t just him it was all of them who lied about viet nam.we had one of these liars come out in the field with us,this after writing nasty stories about us,so the squad leader dropped him in front of me and told me to keep an eye on him.i asked him where was his rifle,he told me he did not need a gun because he was a journalist and just needed his camera.i took his water and drank it,then told him he was not a journalist that he was a sand bag.i told him i would use him for cover if we ran in to any nva.he left the next day.

    Good use of a Liberal journalist. I can think of none better.

    Occam's Tool on April 10, 2012 at 12:52 pm

    Even a stopped clock is right twice a day and I disagree with you about that ramrod putz Westmoreland who used Nam as his personal stage. The was one F’d up war if there ever was one. I worked for ABC “Scope” and was sickened at the atrocities of Mai Lai, and our helecopters taking captured Cong into helecopters for questioning, the first one being thrown out to make the point to those remaining.
    I give you credit for being there, I was admittedly chickenshit, however I eventually did my share by getting my ass kicked by helmeted war supporters while at the same time convincing Jules Bergman to expose the problems with the M-16. Fifty eight thousand PlUS casuaties, I say PlUS because of the untold thousands who took that nightmare home with them whether with cancer from agent orange as a Huey helocopter pilot and POW friend of mine died from, or by suicide by every method you can imagine. Was it worth it even if we had won? Was Hamburger Hill worth it? Was Khe Sanh? How many said take your medals and shove them. Those guys are my heros. That war was lost from the first lie told about the Gulf of Tonkin. Wallace, and Fonda had nothing to do with it. Irael needs our support if it to survive, no matter how Israel offended, or patronized innocent “Palistinian” families, there is no comparisson to what they and their supporting Israel haters do and plan to do to when they are given the chance. History tells even the most ignorant A-holes like aKKKa Johnny Rebel that a peaceful solution is not an option to the true practitioners of terror: HAMAS and spawn, Hizbollah(Lebanon), PLO- FATAH (Munich), Assad (father and son to their own people), AlQueda and spawn, and now the greatest threat Iran.

Spot on as usual Debbie. I have known that Mike Wallace has been anti-Israel for a long time. As for the rest, none of it surprises. Also excellent comments by all as of this writing.

Mike Wallace–RIH!

JeffE on April 9, 2012 at 7:50 pm

Every year 60 Minutes would have one hit piece on Israel and Mike Wallace was always the contributor.

R: Almost always. Sometimes, it was Ed Bradley or Bob Simon that did the anti-Israel hit piece. DS

Debbie, you are a breath of fresh air.. Thank you for your hutzpah! lol and don’t stop!

eg on April 9, 2012 at 9:04 pm

Judging from Wallace’s age of 93, I would have to guess that his love affair with Arafat was never sexual. If it had been than he would most likely have died of AIDS like Arafat did several years ago. Or maybe they were butt buddies and then agreed to be “just friends” before Arafat got AIDS. That would have freed up enough time for Arafat to have sex with as many boys as he wanted.

Anyway, now they both have plenty of time to “enjoy each others’ company”.

CornCoLeo on April 9, 2012 at 9:12 pm

Thank you Debbie for your article. All weekend I had to listen to everyone praise this mentally ill, opportunist. He was praised for his style of questioning, really for being rude & disrespectful. It never ceases to amaze me how the Left Wingers will curry favor with monsters like Arafat, just shows what woozes they all are. They are so afraid the Muslims will kill them they want the Muslims to treat them like “good Jews, etc”. Stupid mentally deranged idiots.

A_Zion_State_0'mind on April 9, 2012 at 9:38 pm

Some of Debbie’s points are valid, but she’s wrong about Wallace attacking Reagan. Despite their political differences, Wallace had a lifelong close friendship with Nancy Reagan.

S: Wrong. Thanks for the incorrect correction, but he did attack Ronald Reagan, repeatedly. Yes, he was friends with the more liberal Nancy Reagan, but that didn’t stop him from repeatedly attacking Ronald Reagan. DS

Scott on April 9, 2012 at 10:16 pm

Mike Wallace told it like it is. Israelis are the scum of the earth. Israel is not a “free democratic government.” Rather, it is the most racist bunch of pricks on the planet Earth. Israeli military are war criminals guilty of murdering, lying, land stealing, and children killing acts of terror. Anyone who thinks Isreal is a “friend” of the USA is sadly mistaken. The USS Liberty incident where Israelis attacked and killed US Navy men shows what Israel is capable of. They sell weapons to sworn enemies of the USA. Our US sertvice men get killed from weapons supplied by Israelis. The only good Israeli soldier is a dead Israeli soldier. I pray that someday, Iran will kill off this “cancer” called Israel and these racist Jew Bastards will burn in hell where they belong!!!

    Johnny, the only thing you a rebelling against is the truth and civilization. Studies have shown repeatedly that Arabs prefer to live in Israel than in the neigboring Islamic nations. The reason is simple: they get to live in a civlized country with opportunities for growth and development.

    The fact that you bring up the USS Liberty story merely proves that you are an anti-Semite as well as anti-Israel (not that there is any real distinction between the two). Although there is a cottage industry of dedicated anti-Semites writing books and filling web pages attacking Israel in connection with the USS Liberty story, there have been several books that have thoroughly explored the evidence and there is absolutely NONE that Israel deliberately attacked the USS Liberty with knowledge that it was American ship.

    And, of course, because you are anti-America as well as an anti-Israel (not that there is any real distinction there either), you ignore the truth about Islam, and the relentless attacks by barbaric Muslims (is there really any other kind?) against Americans. And that is to say nothing about the countless attacks by Muslims upon the citizens of other nations.

    Not that an ignoramus like you would be interested, but here is just a small sampling of the Muslims attacks against Americans:

    1979 Iran Hostage Crisis: seizure of US Tehran Embassy, Iran (Nov 4, 1979 for 444 days)

    1983 Bombing of US Beirut Embassy, Lebanon (April 18, 1983)

    1984 Kuwait Airlines Flight 221 hijacked to Tehran – American passengers murdered (Dec 3, 1984)

    1985 Hijacking TWA Flight 847 hijacked to Beirut (June 14, 1985)

    1985 Hijacking cruise ship Achille Lauro, wheelchair-bound American is thrown overboard & killed (Oct 7, 1985)

    1986 Bombing Berlin disco frequented by US servicemen (April 5, 1986)

    1996 Bombing Khobar Towers, Saudi Arabia, housing U.S. foreign military personnel (Jun 25, 1996)

    1998 Bombing U.S. Nairobi Embassy, Kenya, Africa (Aug 7, 1998)

    1998 Bombing U.S. Dar es Salaam Embassy, Tanzania, Africa (Aug 7, 1998)

    1999 Foiled LAX Millennium plot by Ahmed Ressam to bomb Los Angeles International Airport(Ressam was arrested at US Canadian border)

    2000 Failed USS The Sullivans bombing that was refueling in the port of Aden, Yemen. (Jan 3, 2000)

    2000 Bombing USS Cole in the port of Aden, Yemen, 17 U.S. Navy sailors murdered (Oct 12, 2000)(The USS Cole was not engaged in any combat during this period)

    2000 Bombing plaza across from US Manila Embassy (Dec 30, 2000)

    2001 9/11 attacks: World Trade Center, Flight 93, Pentagon, 3000+ murdered (Sept 11, 2001)

    I could go on and on, but even an idiot lowlife like you, Johnny “Rebel,” gets the point. And I’m not talking about the one at the apex of your head.

    Ralph Adamo on April 10, 2012 at 3:50 am

    Defending that vile piece of human flotsam who said he would never warm US soldiers if their lives were at stake so he could keep his “professional” composure intact – well you come on here and attack Israel. Mike Wallace must be proud you are his fan. The rest of us of think you’re as bad as he was. Keep up with your hatred of the Jews and Israel. You will go a long way in life with it!

    NormanF on April 10, 2012 at 4:25 am

    USS Liberty: Gun camera film shows no US Flag laid out that’s visible. US did not warn Israel of ship in area, despite knowing that it was a war zone.

    Israeli intelligence has saved countless US lives.

    Occam's Tool on April 10, 2012 at 12:54 pm

    Bad enough that you are obnoxious, but being ignorant and bigoted makes you pathetic almost not worth replying to, but as a proud Jew and Zionist I have to have my say.

    Naomi R on April 10, 2012 at 2:16 pm

    No F*+k you, you lying cross burning, church bombing piece of shit. The only difference between you and your sheep f#+king Al Queda buddies is that they iron their sheets.

    Ron Wolf aka "Columbo" on April 11, 2012 at 12:44 am

    May you rot and burn in hell, you vile, little left-wing, radical anti-American, anti-Israeli pathetic extremist!! May you drop dead, the sooner, the better.

    Dave on April 11, 2012 at 3:25 am

Way to go, Debbie…couldn’t have said it better.

ger on April 10, 2012 at 12:59 am

Say it like it is Debbie!

Lucy on April 10, 2012 at 2:27 am

Bless you Debbie…………….”And the truth shall set ye free.”

Herbster on April 10, 2012 at 6:37 am

Thanks, Debbie! I weary of the misplaced praise heaped upon our Quislings.

Wallace was OK, I guess, when he did un-journalistic live beer commercials in the early days of television. If I recall correctly, he pushed for Ballantine or Foxhead 400 beer.
After such an auspicious start, he was elevated to his subversive activities for the networks.

First feeling of loathing came with his way-holier-and judgmental-than-thou interview of Lt. Calley. Along with the
red Cronkite, Wallace liked to “set the agenda” — and
usually it did not favor the USA or its allies. I have a bit of sympathy for the devil — having the company of Walter and Mike together, again.

Otto Schaden on April 10, 2012 at 8:21 am

The God he mocked and rebelled aginst in life will see him soon at the White Throne. Such a tragedy.

Bill Ford on April 10, 2012 at 9:41 am

GREAT WORK DEBBIE YOU KNOW HOW TO GET THE FACTS

martin potashner on April 10, 2012 at 9:54 am

Debbie this is one of the reasons why I think you’re so awesome. You pull no punches and call ‘em like you see ‘em. Myron Wallechinsky aka Mike Wallace was a world class jerkwad in the same vein as Walter Cronkite and Ed Bradley. I too shed no tears for this man whatsoever. This was in part because my of my dad. Due to this scumbag’s “reporting” of the Vietnam War my dad was spit upon and called a baby killer by the leftwing hippy vermin at the time. He had the same reaction when crazy “Uncle” Walter went tango uniform in 2009. I also knew that through his “reporting” that he was an anti-Israel pro terrorist apologist. This is why he had a fit when the terrorist Yasser Arafathead finally took his trip on the highway to hell. Typical leftist journalist that Mike was he had much love for a “man” that he called good looking and having soulful eyes. This is the same stupid crap as when Chris Matthews said that he got tingly feelings in his crotch(or was it his leg) hearing Oblamo vomit forth from his telepromter. Talk about having a major mancrush. I see the same type of reporting from his son Chrissy on Fox News. I guesss the apple didn’t fall far from the liberal tree as far as he’s concerned. Thanks for your post Ralph. You reminded me about why I HATE Muslim terrorists with a passion. Especially the USS Cole bombing as I had 3 friends on that ship at the time and I had just transfered from the same class of ship to a shore command. So I know exactly where those bastards hit the Cole. I just hope that Mike is happy being “down under” with his buddies Yasser, Hussein, and Cronkite. Hey Mike don’t forget to say hi to your other buds Kennedy, Murtha and KKK Byrd. Happy trails dirtbag.

Ken b on April 10, 2012 at 10:28 am

Debbie, thanks for the great perspective of this scumbag

Jay on April 10, 2012 at 10:32 am

Hi Deb.

Being more “moderate” than you, I often can’t go all the way with your theses on any given day. However, where Mike Wallace is concerned, you have probably UNDERSTATED how bad he was. Mike Wallace was neither tough nor fair.

He was unfair to my company when they videotaped 60 minutes conducting their interview and then issued a video rebuttal showing what was edited out of the CBS report. He was not tough, and could not mentally stand up to the same kind of interrogation he dished out when Gen. Westmoreland sued him.

And last but not least. If you think Wallace was anti-Israel because it suddenly became “hip” after the 1974 oil embargo, think again. We have THIS timeless piece of evidence to show Wallace ripping Israel AND (If that’s not enough!) also selling himself out to tobacco companies. Please check the link and watch the video:

You’re gonna love it!

    No Santa: Thanks for posting the link to this 1958 interview. Revelatory. Not only does it reveal the scope and profundity of Wallace’s self-hatred as a Jew and his mendacity regarding Israel’s legal and moral existential legitimacy, the interview starkly reveals the greatness of Abba Eban.

    commonsense on April 10, 2012 at 5:52 pm

      Dear Commonsense:

      I wish I could remember who first sent that link to me. One thing that struck me was how handsome and dapper Abba Eban was as a young man. I always remembered him in his later years after the Six Day War.

      Also, thank you for taking time to watch that link. I think that was a remarkable exchange between an anti-Israel antagonist and one of the Israel’s greatest hasbora representatives.

      I hope others take time to watch it too.

      Regards,

Excellent Debbie. It was well known even years ago that Mike Wallace was bigoted and a Jewish anti-Semite. A real “darling” of a human being.

Naomi R on April 10, 2012 at 2:18 pm

But now the important question: Is the son like the father? Or is the son an independent thinker? I don’t know.

FrenchKiss on April 10, 2012 at 2:41 pm

They said he lived the last part of his life suffering from dementia.

A fitting end for him. May Helen Thomas soon join him after a similar ending.

Bill Co2 on April 10, 2012 at 6:17 pm

I’ll never forget the night he asked Mitt Romney if he had pre-marital sex. Talk about unprofessional!

Nicole on April 10, 2012 at 9:31 pm

Very intersting article, Debbie!

Dave on April 11, 2012 at 3:19 am

What an ugly piece of shit was he.

Not Ovenready on April 11, 2012 at 9:56 am

What I don’t understand about Mike Wallace is why he and his Jewish wife named their son Christopher.

dee on April 11, 2012 at 12:54 pm

Dee, Wallace had non-Jewish wives and he never gave any indication Judaism mattered personally to him in any way. He hated being a Jew and in that respect I suppose he isn’t all that different from Robert Novak, who is probably greeting him when he gets to where he’s going now.

NormanF on April 11, 2012 at 2:58 pm

Mike Wallace’s first wife, Norma Kaphan, was Jewish, and she was (is?) the mother of his son, Christopher.

dee on April 11, 2012 at 5:11 pm

Oh, to have been able to sign the guest book at Yasser Arafat’s funeral like this:

“Dear Rat Bastard,
Hope you’re enjoying the start of your eternity in Hell. May it burn hot enough and long enough to sufficiently punish you for all your deeds against humanity over your not-short-enough lifetime.”

Looks like there is plenty of cause for a similar entry in Mike Wallace’s guest book. Oh sonny boy Chris, look and learn from your father’s mistakes…

Robert on April 16, 2012 at 6:01 pm

not much good news lately, mike wallaces death was a welcome bit of good news though, to never have to suffer thru his anti-Semitic dribble. he was very simply put, a Capo of the first order, if your not familiar with that word, those were the folks who guarded the concentration camps, some of the camps had only 50 to 100 germans all the rest of the really horrible things were done by jews and poles most jews refused and died. but then theres the mike wallaces who wished to continue the work. he is by far one of the most contemptible people ever. watching him kiss Arafat,s ass, he thought he possessed a intellect, as the young people say he was a poseur
