And there is further value to the White House in allowing reporters along. Since the pool was established, during the Dwight D. Eisenhower administration, its presence has also allowed the president to react quickly to events while traveling. Plus, “on every trip the president makes, he has certain messages he’s trying to broadcast, and the pool reporters are the first people and the closest people to him that can help the White House get those messages out,” Mr. Landler said.
Ask a certain kind of twentysomething woman whether she ever visited, 10 or 15 years ago, a website called gURL.com, and she will almost invariably respond the same way. “Oh my God,” she’ll say, eyes widening. “I loved gURL.” gURL elicits a fierce nostalgia among those who read it, and there were plenty who did: According to then-editor Heather McDonald, gURL at its height boasted about three million unique visitors monthly, which was an even more impressive number over a decade ago.
In Newport, R. I., the clambake is more than just a way to pass a summer afternoon; it’s a beloved New England tradition that locals take very seriously. Castle Hill Inn’s summer clambakes, overseen by the chef Karsten Hart (the director of restaurants at Newport Harbor Corporations), have been voted the state’s best by Rhode Island Monthly. They’re inspired, Hart explains, by the Wampanoag and Narragansett tribes’ centuries-old customs — but presented with some modern twists.
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".
