Bully Pulpit

The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

RE: Should the government be in the TV business???

Behethland responds to Steve:

But you don't find this type of programming anywhere else. Nickelodean isn't educational; it's purely for entertainment and there's nothing wrong with that, but children need to learn too.

My point is that PBS fills a void that commercial programming does not. I don't see the opera Carmen or the ballet Swan Lake being shown on NBC.
