Mike Wallace’s interview with Judge Charles Pickering

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

When I heard Mike Wallace passed away last weekend, I thought back to the pleasure I had to meet and work with him in 2004. He did a segment with Judge Charles Pickering, Sr. for 60 Minutes and I was working for Pickering’s son, then Congressman Chip Pickering. Working with Wallace was personally and professionally a rewarding experience. I wrote about Wallace and his interview with Pickering in this week’s column in the Madison County Journal: Perry / Mike Wallace’s Mississippi story

Judge Pickering dedicated a chapter to the Mike Wallace interview in his 2007 book, “A Price Too High: The Judiciary in Jeopardy.”

You can find some excerpts from the interview here.

Below are a few pictures from the interview day.
