Jemele Hill, clearly, can see through all that. She’s been around long enough, and has enough of a head on her shoulders, to know that plenty of people are going to get hurt, and chances are, a great many of them are going to look a lot like her. That’s what this whole story, which grew from a disingenuous right-wing conniption fit, all the way to a podium in the White House, was really all about. Take another look at that tweet. There’s been a lot of ink spilled and energy devoted to it.
Over the course of the past eight months, Trump’s hostile takeover of the Republican Party has been matched only by his total annexation of the American media. There have been enough pages devoted to the rise of Trumpism to sustain entire publications, enough hours spent listening to, arguing with, and just generally contemplating him on TV that he has essentially become the engine that drives cable news. And online?
Sadly, almost a year later, Lynch’s words read as false optimism, even naivety. Call it racism, call it backlash, call it plain old fear, but as he continues to search for a place in a league he is more than qualified to remain a part of, one thing is abundantly clear. America, and the NFL, most assuredly see Colin Kaepernick as a threat.
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
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".
