MIKE WALLACE IS HERE offers an unflinching look at the legendary reporter, who interrogated the 20th century's biggest figures in his over fifty years on air, and his aggressive reporting style and showmanship that redefined what America came to expect from broadcasters. Unearthing decades of never-before-seen footage from the 60 Minutes vault, the film explores what drove and plagued Wallace, whose storied career was entwined with the evolution of journalism itself.

The following statement was issued today by Jane Tillman Irving, president of the New York Press Club:
Today, August 16, news organizations across the country have joined in a concerted effort to defend a fundamental American value, the freedom of the press, against attacks by the President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. Mr. Trump has continually excoriated the press as producers of "fake news" who "only make up stories," and branded the news media "the enemy of the people."
Newspapers are responding to a call from the Boston Globe to publish editorials against what it called "the danger of the administration's assault on the press." The Radio Television Digital News Association encouraged broadcast and online news outlets to devote time and space to emphasizing "the role the media play in preserving the public's right and need to know."
The members of the New York Press Club know that our job as journalists is to seek the truth and present it fairly and objectively. Our colleagues have done so since the founding of the Republic, despite criticism from many sources. Difficulties, obstacles, attacks and increasing physical dangers encouraged by this president notwithstanding, we pledge to continue that pursuit. Our very democracy depends upon it.
Jane Tillman Irving
President, the New York Press Club
(Irving was interviewed by reporter Mike Sacks on FOX5 News on Monday, July 23, 2018).
The sudden dismissal of more than half of the newsroom staff at the New York Daily News is a great loss for our fellow journalists, our city, and our democracy.
The news media are under fire from so many sources, and those who fail to recognize the danger that poses to our democratic system are not paying attention. The first layer of democracy - that which affects us first and most directly - is at the local level: your subway, your suburb, your school district, your block. The men and women of the Daily News knew how to dig deeply into an issue, and because of that, the paper won two Pulitzer Prizes in recent years for coverage that had a major impact on the people who live and work in this area.
The old economic model that once made this a seven newspaper town is not coming back, but surely a new system can and must be developed that allows these talented news people to keep their jobs and continue performing the vital public service they do so well.
