Trump, who’s no stranger to inappropriate tweets, fired off an especially disgusting one about Senator Kirsten Gillibrand yesterday. Angered that the New York senator had called for his resignation, Trump called her a “lightweight” who “would do anything” for campaign contributions, a statement that many interpreted as a sexual innuendo and a blatant example of sexual harassment. Appearing on NBC’s Today show on Wednesday, Gillibrand said she also took it that way, The Hill reports.
So rarely do women get to witness men who have allegedly harassed or abused them face any sort of consequences for their actions, a major reason why so few bother to come forward in the first place. But after culture warrior Roy Moore, an accused pedophile who allegedly trawled malls for teenage girls, lost to Doug Jones in last night’s Alabama Senate race, one of Moore’s accusers is feeling a renewed sense of justice.
When U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley appeared on Face the Nation this weekend, she made the risky decision to express her support for all people who choose to come forward with stories about sexual misconduct — even those who have accused Trump. According to two people who are familiar with the president’s views, Haley’s statement made Trump furious, AP News reports.
"The fact that income inequality is at 1920s levels is a crisis. The fact that wages haven’t increased in real terms, that’s a crisis. Those are real crises. The national debt is not a crisis." https://t.co/VY8kvjv44J
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".
