>> harris: steve centanni now live in washington with more on this, steve. >> well, mike wallace was feared by some who faced his probing questions and he was clearly respected by millions more and his close family and nancy reagan who said in a statement. my dear friend, mike wallace, the news is a different place and our lives have been changed having known them. even though wallace was friends with ronald and nancy reagan, they still got the same interview. >> what was your husband-- iran-contra. >> nothing. >> he was president of the united states. >> i don't know enough about iran-contra, mike, to talk to you intelligently about it. >> wallace interviewed friends and foes, dictators and city
counc council-- scoundrels. >> he said recently, arafat is the christ of the palestinian people. >> leave the shoes and start the interview, please. >> they say i'm difficult? >> unquestionably one of the great interviewers. >> joining us on the phone now, a personal friend of mike wallace and they worked together for years. former cbs news vice-president joe peerman, joe, thanks a lot for being with us tonight. you're with us. >> thank you. >> absolutely, first, the passing of a friend. your sentiment? >> well, it's a very sad day for us, personally, here, we both worked at cbs news, my wife and i and worked with him
for many, many years, but it's a very sad day for the cbs family and for all media world, this to mike wallace was an original figure. there was no one like him as a business and he inspired thousands of journalists, along the way, in the '60s, '70s, and '80s to get in and to do a solid interviews, if you will, and get to the bottom and get to the truth. i mean, he really was a very inspirational figure for all of us. >> yeah, solid interviews, indeed. i know in your job in the '80s and '90s, you were in charge of programming, some of mike wallace's famed 60 minutes interview no doubt part of your discussion. >> well, mike was a competitor, he competed for a story, whatever the story was, the hot story, he jumped on it. and often times that would be some key, global figure or some media figure and more
importantly, it was interesting to he see the competition that would take place internally at 60 minutes among the correspondents as they tried to one up each other, trying to get the best interviews, but mike was always, it seemed, the winner. he was very shrewd, very smart. but he was driven and he was focused. a when he did an interview, everybody stood still and quietly watched and he formulate questions be, he got to the heart of the question and he was not fearful. you played the interview with khomeini and you can imagine being in iran and telling him he's considered a tyrant or a lunatic, rather, and that takes some chutzpa, and mike had chutzpa. >> it's interesting to get a peek behind the curtain of the kind of rapport with the other correspondents at 60 minutes and was he as tough in person as he was in the interviews? >> yes, he could be, he was
charming and wonderful in many, many ways and the competition and the job, he loved to compete, he loved to win, and so internally, he would be very competitive and i remember having to sort out yelling matches i don't think correspondents as they were deciding or trying to decide who should get what interview. and that was the nature of the beast, but that was what made the program so great and makes it so great today. this eagerness to be number one, to be first, to be the best, and what's had a mike person son phied. >> joe, we should tell our viewers, you're teaching now the next generation of journalists, how did mike wallace shape what we do today? >> i think in truth, in many ways, first of all, just this desire to get to the truth. and no matter what has to be done, to get to the bottom of the story, he never had to apologize for a story, and he
really focused on doing, stories with integrity, he worked very hard on the research, he was able to follow through and he thought of himself as someone serving the public, asking questions that would help the viewers better understand or resolve issues that faced his viewers. he so, that was very important to him. it was a public service. >> yeah, i remember reading the four words you didn't want to hear, mike wallace is here. >> that's exactly right. it hung in his office and it was in fact the truth. and former cbs news vice-president joining us by phone tonight with his perspective on losing a friend and iconic news man tonight. joe, thank you. >> thank you very much. >> earlier today, fox news channel chairman and ceo roger ailes reacted to the news of mike wallace's death. here is mr. ailes on news headquarters. >> it's sad day for all of us
who knew mike and admired him. he was a bit of a controversial character throughout the years, one of the toughest interviewers, but he'll always be in the pantheon of greats in television and journalism, he is just a legend and will always be. and you know, i had a talk with him about chris wallace. now, chris doesn't know this, but mike had great admiration for chris and he told me things that he said, you know, chris has got some things i don't have. chris has an approach to the thing, but as dogged as his father in terms of going after the truth and that's one of the reasons we hired him at fox, is he gives a fair and balanced interview, but he comes coming. >> harris: we'll have more on the passing of mike wallace coming up inside the fox report. right now, we're learning new details about that rash of deadly shootings that left three people dead and two others hurt in oklahoma and
police are looking at two men in connection with the killings and the victims are black seemingly shot at random and police say there's a possible connection between the shootings and alleged facebook postings by one of the suspects. at a news conference earlier, officials stopped short of calling it racially motivated. >> the evidence to talk us where we want to go. there are motivations other than race in these kind of incidents, but we'll look-- i certainly couldn't make that determination right now. >> and fox news correspondent anna kooiman is here now, and more about the social media connection. >> police are saying they're looking at a possible posting by one of the suspects, jake england to suggest he was angry over the killing of his father by a black man two years ago and it does contain racial slurs, but investigators say it's too
early to talk about this as a hate crime. >> it's premature to talk about hate crimes, we have yet to analyze the information and do you understand the motivation of the subjects in this case? >> with the african-american leaders in the communities have a very different take on the case. >> i think that the communities were very upset with black people and that person happened to be a white person and the people they happened to shoot and kill were black people. >> and harris, the naacp cited a between the community and the police department. >> harris: how did this come about. >> law enforcement apprehended england and watts at a home around 1:45 this morning, happened just hours after creating operation random shooter. the task force of various law
