Copaganda facts for kids
Copaganda is when the media show police officers in a good way, and do not show the bad actions that they do. The word is a portmanteau of cop and propaganda, and is used by Black Lives Matter activists. Showing police in a good way is not thought to be true for many working class, indigenous, brown, and black people.
Since the George Floyd protests, the term has been used more to criticize the media.
Although the term is quite new, copaganda has been around for a long time.
Many TV shows are seen as examples of copaganda.
