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.

Not Returning

(Fox News) - TIME — which has been engaged in a effort to hire what managing editor Richard Stengel calls "star writers" — is not renewing the contracts of conservative columnists William Kristol and Charles Krauthammer — both of whom are also FOX News contributors.

The New York Observer reports Stengel was unavailable for comment about the reasoning for the decision because he was working on the "Person of the Year" issue.

TIME is said to be negotiating to replace one of the high-profile contributor spots with National Review senior editor Ramesh Ponnuru.

This is pretty good. Time is actually improving their credibility with this. They are replacing a quasi-conservative (Krauthammer) and a faux conservative (Kristol) with a genuine right-leaning writer.

Congratulations to Time Magazine.
