Mike Wallace Unhinged

Can only shake my head and wonder at what's become of our media. Mike Wallace interviews Ahmadinejad.

This is journalism? "Wallace dismissed the common perceptions of Ahmadinejad."

"He's actually, in a strange way, he's a rather attractive man, very smart, savvy, self-assured, good looking in a strange way," Wallace said. "He's very, very short but he's comfortable in his own skin."

Let's see, common perceptions of Ahmadinejad:

--He's a madman, a former exterminator, executioner and torturer in Evin Prison. Thousands of dissident students were executed by his hand. But Mikey likes him!

--He's determined to exterminate, annihilate Israel. Wallace has dismissed this as a common perception, I believe. No big deal.

--He loves Hitler. But I think Mike Wallace would have loved him as well had he the opportunity to interview him. 1939 NYT headline: "Wallace dismisses common perceptions of Hitler".

--He supports and funds terrorism. Wallace would call them heroic freedomfighters.

--Doesn't believe the Holocaust happened. Perhaps neither does his friend, Mike Wallace.

This is by no means a comprehensive list. I am thinking Wallace has got his eye on a Pulitzer, Walter Durante style.
