Hillary Clinton schemed, lied repeatedly, and jeopardized national security in favor of her own selfish interests while secretary of state. Of course, that's not the gist you will get from the various media outlets sifting through the 7,000 emails the State Department released last night. The Clinton defenders will focus...
At first look, Russia seems to be in a bind. By the end of 2014, international sanctions had finally taken a toll. Moscow has suffered currency flight, inflation, and an economic slowdown that could quickly turn into a recession. Apple stopped selling its products in Russia, and lines for...
As I sit here writing, I can hear the sirens from my apartment, and rotors of police helicopters overhead. They are back. Once again, protestors are unleashing a spasm of anger and disruption onto the streets in New York, and with similar marches across the country, are...
Yes, Obama acted like a monarch last week with his unilateral amnesty for illegals. He aggressively violated the limits of presidential authority he himself had repeatedly recognized in the past and issued an executive order legalizing millions. As many have said, the President has indeed acted like a progressive...
They beheaded another one of ours. The psychotic savages of the Islamic State have claimed a third American victim. Peter Kassig once served as a U.S. Army Ranger. Starting in 2012, he founded a relief organization for the victims of the Syrian civl war. Kassig took food, medicine...
The grand jury for the Michael Brown shooting will announce its decision within weeks, perhaps even days- and among those in the Ferguson area, there seems to be little doubt about what is coming if no indictment is handed down. Businesses and residents are boarding up windows, hoarding...
The world watched in horror as jihadist terrorists swept across large swathes of Iraq last week. The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria ("Sham"), referred to as ISIS, launched a bold jihadist invasion, seizing substantial war spoils and reportedly executing large numbers of captured soldiers. There is panicked...
Vladimir Putin has already won in Ukraine. The pro-western movement in Kiev is basically on its own. The only question left is how far Putin will go with his intrusions, including a possible invasion of the pro-Russian East and the de facto bifurcation of the Ukrainian state. Either...
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
