Mike Wallace-Attacked as Self-Hating Jew

The most controversial reports Mike Wallace and I did at 60 Minutes involved Israel--and provoked --from some-- the charge that Mike (and I ) were self-hating Jews...There's an in-depth look at the most controversial of all those reports in the current edition of The Jewish Daily Forward in New York. If  you're interested, check it out:

  1. Great article in The Forward. I recall that controversy in real time, and my initial shock from reading The Village Voice article. And then, I recall my admiration for CBS for not being afraid to check out the facts in that report and do its own independent analysis--and drawing the proper conclusions that back The Voice's article's facts and conclusions. I recall the firestorm that erupted, and, as this was pre-Internet, voices like mine were easily drowned by the organized American Jewish lobbyists inhabiting the AIPAC, ADL, ZOA and Jewish Federations across the US. It is easier to speak up today inside the Jewish community, largely because of the Internet, Peace Now USA and J Street.
