Although it had a pre-packaged obituary ready to air in the event of Mike Wallace's death, CBS News and 60 Minutes decided to refresh it and air it next Sunday as a special edition of the magazine show, The New York Times reported on its website Sunday. The delay, said the newspaper, will give the network time to promote the special and make final adjustments to it. Wallace, who was 93, died on Saturday after being in declining health for the past four years. His position at CBS News was always of a special nature. Like Edward R. Murrow and Lowell Thomas, he did not contribute to the regular CBS news programs, focusing all his effort on 60 Minutes. Nevertheless, in numerous tributes released on Sunday, many colleagues at CBS News and competitors described how they were influenced by his aggressive style of journalism and particularly for his tough, often confrontational interviews.
