"Pat Harvey, I've always thought you carried yourself professionally and personally the way a strong black woman should," wrote Dorner. "Your articulation and speech is second to none. You are the epitome of a journalist/anchor. You are America."
Dorner singles out many American celebrities in the post, including Tim Tebow, Bill Cosby, Larry David and Charlie Sheen. He presumably watched a lot of TV news, mentioning several broadcast journalists in the manifesto.
"Willie Geist, you're a talented and charismatic journalist," wrote Dorner, who then urged Geist to "stop with the talk show shenanigans."
"Chris Matthews, Joe Scarborough, Pat Harvey, Brian Williams, Soledad Obrien, Wolf Blitzer, Meredith Viera [sic], Tavis Smiley, and Anderson Cooper, keep up the great work and follow Cronkite's lead," he wrote.
A former Los Angeles police officer, Dorner remains at large -- wanted in the deaths of three people, including a police officer. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa announced a $1 million reward for information leading to Dorner's capture.
In his interview with Harvey, Chief Beck said he is reopening the disciplinary case that resulted in Dorner's termination from the LAPD. "I'm not doing this to appease him. I'm doing this so the community has faith in what the police department does," Beck told Harvey.
Beck also told Harvey, an African-American, he chose to speak with her to best reach out the African-American community in Los Angeles. Dorner claimed the LAPD unfairly targeted African-Americans.
Harvey was named co-anchor of KCBS's 5 and 11 p.m. newscasts in 2010. She joined the station after 20 years with sister station KCAL.
