Donald Trump practically founded his campaign as a rebuke of political correctness, invoking the term in his official acceptance of the GOP nomination. He paints political correctness as ideological bondage. He claims it blinds people to the world's hard "truths" - like that handicapped people are funny, or that brown people are bad.
Your new book, "Hidden Figures," is the story of the black female mathematicians at NASA who helped put Americans on the moon. Why haven't we heard about this before? Where I grew up, in Hampton, Va., we knew the story, and we thought it was pretty normal.
Welcome to "Why Is My Dad Mad?", MTV's occasional inquiry into issues that may come up on your Facebook feed or over dinner. Why is my dad mad? Has he been posting links to Talking Points Memo a lot lately? Does the name "Pam Bondi" appear in the headlines?
In February, you were named the director of the National Book Foundation. What does that mean on a day-to-day level? Our mission is to enhance the cultural value of good writing in America. That's a big job! But I can't just think of it in terms of, say, a 10-year plan.
Debates about the health of presidential candidates are a staple of modern politics; they are also almost never really about the candidates' health. Historically, such complaints are more polite concern-trolling than real mudslinging: i.e., "I'm not saying John McCain is too old to be president, I'm just worried about him."
Frustration with the American political system has reached new heights in 2016, whether measured by the popularity of "outsider" candidates or the number of voters who remain undecided this far into the election.
You've been the moderator of "The View" since 2007, where you have been known to share the occasional provocative opinion, including that Bill Cosby should be considered innocent until proven guilty, which you later walked back. Do you consider the Roger Ailes case similarly?
Stop wasting your time trying to figure out why Donald Trump has changed his position on immigration. Stop trying to convince his supporters that he has changed his position on immigration. The most important thing about Trump's position on immigration - whatever it is today - is that his supporters don't give a fuck about policy specifics; heck, they barely care about policy generalities.
It seems as if what you're best known for, at least in pop culture, is being the guy Glenn Beck hounded out of the White House, and also for owning Jeffrey Lord on CNN. What would you like to be known for? I'm a serial, successful social entrepreneur.
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
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".
