This is a great video. Three cheers.

Police Juror Steve Coco claims to be the “most qualified, experienced news source” in all of Central Louisiana. This will most assuredly help his candidacy for Mayor of Alexandria. If you are running for Mayor and you also believe yourself to be the “most qualified, experienced news source,” then you can literally endorse your own candidacy and criticize your opponents as a “news source.” No, no, it wouldn’t be Steve Coco the Candidate reporting; it’d be Steve Coco the Source of News in Central Louisiana. It’s ingenious.

Maybe I’ve had it all wrong. During the last four years, I’ve written a personal blog on my own time, and I haven’t earned a penny doing so. But somehow, I’ve been maligned by Mr. Coco as some sort of paid propagandist. If I had only labeled myself as Central Louisiana’s Most Trusted Name in News or something to that effect, maybe Xeroxed a couple of PRESS badges, then I could have claimed journalistic immunity, which is like political kevlar, and earned an income through the Police Jury or SSI instead.

In all seriousness:

For real?

  1. Steve Coco’s comments, divorced from reality, disturbing in and of themselves, pale when we consider that he does represent the public in an official capacity. Combined with his tendency to distort information makes me want to live in Grant Parish.

  2. A great thing about this and the other “fortress” video is that if City Hall was truly a fortress of security, he would have never been able to make these videos in the first place!

    I’d like to see him come down to New Orleans and do this over at the Hale Boggs Federal Building like O’Keefe tried, so he can learn first hand about real security at a public building.

    A sign-in sheet. OH THE HORROR!

  3. Steve Coco is enthralled with Steve Coco and the only way to get airtime is to fight The Man and stand in front of his sad little camera with his sad little anchorman suit and glasses and act like he’s changing the world.

  4. Quoting you: “If I had only labeled myself as Central Louisiana’s Most Trusted Name in News or something to that effect, maybe Xeroxed a couple of PRESS badges, then I could have claimed journalistic immunity, which is like political kevlar, and earned an income through the Police Jury or SSI instead.”

    Really LOL funny, Lamar. Thanks for making my night.
