Jeremy Corbyn may have just lost the next general election, whenever it takes place. For him still to be a contender, the public would have shake up the kaleidoscope of British politics and be willing to send to Downing Street a leader committed to overturning almost all the UK has stood for in the world for at least 75 years. In his response to the Salisbury poisonings, Corbyn was entirely true to himself and the beliefs he has clung to through four decades in politics.
American diplomats will only mourn the departure of Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State for fear of his replacement being worse. After fourteen months of Tillerson in charge American foreign policy, career professionals describe the State Department in terms such as a “hollowed out shell” with a third of senior and middle ranking posts unfilled. Tillerson, who was previously CEO of Exxon, brought a businessman’s cost-cutting instincts into government.
‘No red box, no official document, no spending increases, no tax changes.” The Treasury official probably regretted leaving out “no fun”. The chancellor has decided there is no need for two big financial statements each year. Big adjustments must await the budget proper in late autumn; this Tuesday he aims to get what little he has to say off his chest in less than 20 minutes. For Philip Hammond greyness is the point. He does not want to do anything exciting.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
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".
