I have no sorrow for the death of that homophobic bigot Mike Wallace. He knew that documentary was rabidly biased and homophobic, even for its day. Full of falsehoods, lies and propaganda. Why didn't he make an up-dated documentary and set the record "straight" and expose all the indignities, misinformation and outright irrational homophobic fear and hate before he died ? Because he was an old bigot and did not care about gay people....then or now ! Furthermore, he was a Jew and should have known better ! Did he not get it ? Look what happened in Nazi Germany, only 30 years before this twisted broadcast was produced. People were scapegoated, terrorized, tortured and murdered because they were despised, hated and seen as vermin. Did he not see the analogy of an intolerant and evil greater society at large towards vulnerable and oppressed minorities with it ? He has an almost "smug" apathetic and personal condescending attitude in his actions and expressions towards all the brave gay men that went on camera and spoke of their sexuality and plight. Back then, most were disguised for fear of physical harm, lives being destroyed and even being murdered for daring to speak-up and declare yourself gay. The one very handsome young man that went on camera free of any "mask" was truly brave, admirable and worthy of my full respect as a human being.
