Suspect in L.A. Cop Slaying Names TV News Personalities in His Manifesto TVNewser
The former Los Angeles police officer who is a suspect in the killings of a police officer and two other people has written a "rambling manifesto" that mentions several TV news personalities, reports TVNewser.com.
In the note, Christopher Jordan Dorner offers praise to many on TV, writing:
"Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough, (KCBS anchor) Pat Harvey, Brian Williams, Soledad Obrien (sic), Wolf Blitzer, Meredith Viera (sic), Tavis Smiley, and Anderson Cooper, keep up the great work and follow Cronkite’s lead. I hold many of you in the same regard as Tom Brokaw and the late Peter Jennings. Cooper, stop nagging and berating your guest, they’re your (guest). Mr. Scarborough, we met at McGuire’s pub in P-cola in 2002 when I was stationed there. It was an honor conversing with you about politics, family, and life."
He also offers some advice to Willie Geist, the co-host of MSNBC's "Morning Joe," writing, "you’re a talented and charismatic journalist. Stop with all the talk show shenanigans and get back to your core of reporting. Your future is brighter than most."
The report adds: “He goes on to say kind things about Piers Morgan, David Gergen and Jeffrey Toobin, and also suggests that Fareed Zakaria should be deported.”
As previously reported, CNN's Anderson Cooper received a package from Dorner, which included a bullet-riddled memento, a note and a DVD.
