Copaganda

Nobody asked but …

Some Facebook friends and I were discussing a new cops and robbers (I repeat myself) teevee show, “Almost Human.” I joked that the show might be an example of “copaganda.” Surely I am not the first to coin that word. But J. Edgar Hoover (FBI) and William Parker (LAPD) invented the genre copaganda, although I’m sure Teddy Roosevelt did it via his natural bent for self-promotion, when he was NYPD chief. We will not forget, however, “I was a Communist for the FBI” or “Dragnet.”
