Wallace stepped on some toes. His career proves that if you go through life trying to make everyone like you – both personally and professionally — you won’t achieve all you are capable of achieving. Here’s a little advice: You are always going to have a choice: to think of what the other guy wants to hear, or do what you know is right. Forget about what people want you to tell them. Do what you know is right. What I loved most about Mike Wallace was that he believed in a kind of old school reporting that we’ve lost sight of now: reporting with a conscience. His best stories followed a simple “good guys versus bad guys” format, but Wallace himself was one of the good guys. He will be missed.
