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.

9 to 1 Democrat

(Fox News) - An analysis of Federal Election Commission records by NBC indicates journalists who make political donations favor Democrats over Republicans by a margin of almost nine-to-one.

The network identified 144 media members who made contributions from 2004 through the start of the 2008 campaign. 125 of those gave to Democrats or liberal causes. Only 17 gave to Republicans, with two giving to both parties.

Two of those 144 work here at the FOX News Channel. One gave to Republican candidates and the other— a researcher for Special Report— gave to a Democrat.
