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.

NBC Nightly News Does Wicked Hatchet Job on Their Own Sucessful Employee…Donald Trump…Why?

Trump Is a Giant

(By Christopher Ruddy, Newsmax.com) -
On Tuesday night, “NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams” began its evening newscast with a program on Donald Trump and his 2012 presidential ambitions.

I was surprised by the segment, especially since NBC airs Trump’s top-rated “Apprentice” show.

The NBC News segment was a hatchet job, focusing on a slice of Trump’s business dealings through the years. NBC only highlighted controversies and failures the businessman has been involved in throughout more than three decades of deal-making.

Apparently, NBC dug up every little company that Trump has been associated with that had a lawsuit, bankruptcy, or other problem.

The report was simply unfair. NBC completely left out Trump’s fantastic business success that has yielded him a multibillion-dollar net worth. He didn’t get this status by being a schlep. There is no dispute that Trump has built beautiful buildings and properties and profitable companies, and has burnished a global brand the likes of which few can boast.

Hello NBC — doesn’t your own “Apprentice” program promote The Donald as one of the great businessmen in the land, a man whose “you’re fired” means he knows what he’s talking about?
