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.

Fox’s Greg Gutfeld And Bob Beckel Admit To ‘Pulling Punches’ With ‘Co-Worker’ Sarah Palin

(By Jon Bershad, Mediaite) - Well, this was unexpected. During a quick segment on Sarah Palin’s 'Hannity' appearance, 'The Five'’s Greg Gutfeld and Bob Beckel both discussed the difficulty with ever saying anything bad about the former Governor since she is, technically, a “co-worker.” This has always been the criticism of Palin’s appearances on the network but we’ve never heard Fox News employees admit it so bluntly. You might as well get used to this video because, as long as Palin is getting paid by Fox News, something tells me detractors of both she and the network will be giving this clip a 'whole' lot of play.

Greg Gutfeld: “The only problem with talking about Sarah Palin is that she works here and it’s like a co-worker and, if I say something bad and I see her in the hallway, I feel really awkward and wrong. So I just kind of say, ‘That was a good job.’”
