Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

Fox 29 Reporter Attacked During Live Report

Cops: Man Faces Assault, Resisting Arrest Charges

Fox 29 reporter Chris O’Connell and video journalist Dave Edwards are OK after they were attacked on live TV by the son of a man charged in a bizarre animal cruelty case involving a naked man and an Iguana.

O’Connell and Edwards were doing a live report at 10 p.m. about the case, where a police raid was triggered by the naked man outside a house at 9th and Shunk Street on Tuesday night.

The man, who O’Connell later said was the suspect’s son, appeared during the live segment and lunged at O’Connell as Edwards tried to restrain him.
