    NEW YORK — 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 prime-time television news program ever, has died. He was 93.

    Rest in Peace. A true journalist. Not an entertainer.
    As a dreamer of dreams and a travellin' man, I have chalked up many a mile.
    Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks and I've learned much from both of their styles!

    An Icon in the industry. I didn't agree with his politics, but he was always a great interviewer, and I think in the end a real journalist. RIP.

    Seven of the most feared words in the English language:

    "Hello, I'm Mike Wallace from 60 Minutes."

    Rest in peace.

    RIP Mike. Let's all be thankful that he had 93 wonderful years living on this planet and enjoyed his life's work.

    Let's be joyous, rather than sad.
