In a time of questionable candidates and flame wars galore, Alexander Zaitchik has a new book that displays the disarray. A longform Jedi with roots in the alternative press, the author last surfaced between covers with Common Nonsense, a graphic look at "Glenn Beck and the Triumph of Ignorance" in the Tea Party era.
It's a story that Bostonians need to remember. And that people who have moved here in the past two years should hear, however uncomfortable it makes us all. In October 2014, more than 700 people were ordered to evacuate the shelters and facilities on Long Island, a relative humble oasis that was home for many on the margins of society.
As one of the few reporters in the Commonwealth who has sounded alarms about charter schools and their nefarious corporate boosters since Mitt Romney was governor, I thought the fight was over long ago, and that those who think that tycoons should run schools had won.
In a time of questionable candidates and flame wars galore, at least Alexander Zaitchik has a new book that displays the disarray. A longform Jedi with roots in the alternative press, the author last surfaced between covers with Common Nonsense , a graphic look at "Glenn Beck and the Triumph of Ignorance" in the Tea Party era.
The media is a food chain which would fall apart without local newspapers. -John Oliver My email inbox nearly melted Sunday night. By Monday morning, I'd received more DMs on Twitter about John Oliver's assessment of the journalism business than I have on all other topics combined over the past month.
Two standout crime-and-punishment stories hit Hub headlines last week. Separately, they're alarming. In tandem, the panoramic is even more frightening, a snapshot of the gap between the way that criminal justice reformers see things and the typical worldview of those who profit in or get a pass from the modern police state.
There's a man with a dark complexion hocking "Bomb The Hell Out of ISIS" lapel pins. His heart's not really in it. The next vendor over from him isn't legitimately feeling the energy, either, his long hair and thick Boston accent a dead giveaway that he's a foreigner in Trump country.
Not unlike our city's subway but with better drinks and Technics decks, the Good Life in Downtown Crossing is an iconic equalizer, the rare place in our segregated Hub where several walks of life cross paths and even exchange spit and digits.
In the interest of developing a blueprint before hollering about our model from the rooftops, in our first year, while initially tooling the Boston Institute for Nonprofit Journalism, I kept ( relatively) quiet about my team's experiments. Until recently.
Last week more than a thousand people rallied in the shadow of Boston Police Department headquarters. Under a banner reading, "MASS ACTION AGAINST POLICE BRUTALITY," also the name of the group which organized the event , protesters harangued authorities for policies and attitudes that hurt communities of color.
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 politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney 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.
