My math might be off for the exact amount of time Sean Spicer served as White House press secretary, but there are 182 days from Jan. 20 to July 21. On Friday, Spicer resigned. Anthony Scaramucci was named White House communications director and, in turn, announced that Sarah Huckabee Sanders would be taking over Spicer’s job. Scaramucci is close to President Trump, a successful businessman, defender of Trump on television and has that look of success that appeals to Trump.
I have an O.J. Simpson story of sorts. I was living in Los Angeles in June of 1994 and, as fate would have it, I was working near Westwood on June 17. I had bought lunch and was eating in my car with the windows down near a small neighborhood park in Holmby Hills, an affluent section of Los Angeles near Bel-Air and Beverly Hills. A car pulled alongside mine, and the driver rolled down his window and asked, “Did he surrender?” The “he” was Simpson.
The president's children are not qualified to be advisers to the president. They should be loyal supporters, but that's it. Donald Trump went to Paris to celebrate Bastille Day with France’s new president, Emmanuel Macron. Forget the deux amis handshake. The kissing. The interaction between Trump and Brigitte Macron, the French president’s wife. Think about why Trump was there: to celebrate France’s overthrow of the Bourbon king, Louis XVI.
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".
