Revered journalist Mike Wallace has died at the age of 93.

Bob Schieffer, host of the CBS show Face the Nation, said that Wallace passed away at a care facility in New Haven, Conn., the Washington Post reported.

Wallace was known for his confrontational style—a format that worked well on 60 Minutes, the TV show where he was a regular correspondent from 1968 to 2006. ( He also won 21 Emmys during his career. ) Among his post-2006 profiles were current GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and Dr. Jack Kevorkian.

One of his early groundbreaking reports involved gay people. In 1967, Wallace did a controversial report entitled "The Homosexuals," according to MagneticFire.com . The segment covers the Mattachine Society, one of the earliest organizations that focused on the gay-rights movement. The program also looks at the medical, legal and social aspects of homosexuality.

During one part of the report, Wallace says, "This much is certain. Male homosexuals in America number in the millions—and their number is growing. They are attracted mostly to the anonymity that a big city gives them: New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco." However, he also says, "The average homosexual if there be such, is promiscuous. He is not interested in or capable of a lasting relationship like that of a heterosexual marriage. ... The one-night stand is a characteristic of the homosexual relationship…."

The video is at www.towleroad.com/2010/02/1967.html.

Wallace also hosted a 1996 documentary on gays in the military as part of his "20th Century with Mike Wallace" series, according to the New York Times.
