Media junkie. Writing about journalism, the news biz and other media foibles but never what I had for breakfast. Ever. Back from shaking up life and moving to Afghanistan for 2 years. Ready to have fun in daily journalism again.

“Crooked Hillary.” “The devil.” “Such a nasty woman.” How many times did Donald Trump call Hillary Clinton those epithets on TV or in print throughout the long, heavily covered presidential campaign? Social scientists will tell you that if you hear something over and over — like Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States — some people will come to believe it whether it’s true or not.
She's rightfully angry about press failures and says journalists won't accept their role in her defeat — but also ignores her own initial missteps. “Crooked Hillary.” “The devil.” “Such a nasty woman.” How many times did Donald Trump call Hillary Clinton those epithets on TV or in print throughout the long, heavily covered presidential campaign?
Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Late last Saturday night, CNN producer Jennifer Hauser and her husband, on a whim, bought a $10 lottery ticket to mark their seventh wedding anniversary. They scratched off the blue "50X The Money" ticket and couldn’t believe their eyes. They’d won $1 million. Only three months before, the lucky couple won $100,000. “It was late at night and I was pretty tired and had to be up at 6 a.m. to work the next day,” said Hauser, 29.
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".
