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.

"Culture of Bias"

(Fox News) - Just one day after an independent report accused the British Broadcasting Company of having a "culture of bias" — the BBC's Web site carried a request for people in Iraq to report troop movements to the network.

The Daily Telegraph writes the request was up for about two hours before furious protests prompted its removal.

The BBC confirms the page read — "Are you in Iraq? Have you seen any troop movements? If you have any information you would like to share with the BBC, you can do so using the form below."

The BBC acknowledged the page should not have been published — but couldn't say why the notice was posted — or if there had been any responses.
