Personal Quote:

The Westmoreland affair, professionally and personally, was one of the most difficult times of my life. It was just devastatingly difficult because my integrity was put to question, and as a reporter, that's the single most important thing you've got. See more »

Trivia:

The most shocking interview he had ever done on 60 Minutes (1968) was with Vietnam veteran, Paul Meadlo, where Meadlo confessed his role in the 'My Lai Massacre,' the Vietnam atrocity by American troops that pulled the nation. Wallace told Bradley about this, years after. See more »
