    I always enjoyed the show. Some days I was so kicked back that it would take me an hour and a half to watch 60 minutes.

    I always enjoyed watching him on 60 minutes. I liked his interviewing techniques. He never pulled any punches.

    Yes he was considered fair. It was in his later years that he did a few things that got him in trouble as he played the 'gotcha' game. Still, he tried to remain politically nutral from what I remember.

    Excerpt:

    He said it was the death of his 19-year-old son, Peter, in an accident in 1962 that made him decide to stick to serious journalism from then on. (Another son, Chris, followed his father and became a broadcast journalist, most recently as a Fox News Channel anchor.)
    Wallace had a short stint reporting from Vietnam, and took a sock in the jaw while covering the tumultuous 1968 Democratic convention in Chicago. But he didn't fit the stereotype of the Eastern liberal journalist. He was a close friend of the Reagans and was once offered the job of Richard Nixon's press secretary. He called his politics moderate.
