Remembering Mike Wallace

CCLP Senior Fellow, Adam Clayton Powell III quoted in John Gizzi’s article, How Mike Wallace nearly became White House press secretary. “And Mike was an admirer,” said Adam Clayton Powell, III, both of whose parents were friends of Wallace and who himself got his start in journalism as an intern with the newsman at CBS. Powell recalled how Wallace later told The New York Times he regarded Nixon “with great respect. He was savvy, smart, hard-working.”
