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:
