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.

(By Scott Gustin, WGHP) - FOX8 Meteorologist Emily Byrd is recovering at a local hospital after she was badly hurt in a fall on Monday.
