At least 10,000 people were killed in Tiananmen Square in June 1989, according to a newly released British diplomatic cable. In the past two days, some variation of that lede has appeared in multiple Western media outlets, from BBC to AFP. The articles will all say that the secret diplomatic cable was sent by Britain’s ambassador to China, Alan Donald, from Beijing to London on June 5, 1989.
Hundreds of people gathered today in Feijia Village 费家村, outside of Beijing’s northeast Fifth Ring Road, to protest the government-mandated mass evictions that have destroyed livelihoods — and entire neighborhoods — over the past month. Today happens to be the 70th edition of Human Rights Day, a UN-recognized commemoration of human rights around the world.
Ever wonder how we produce a daily newsletter with dozens of links every day? (A daily and free newsletter you should subscribe to, by the way.) We read. A lot. We have sources. We call them: SupChina Sources. And we’d like to reveal them to you. The approximately 150 links in this document constitute some (though not all) of the most regularly visited English-language websites that we use to collect noteworthy and newsworthy updates and insights on China.
Too much truth in this latest @mellinger column. "Whatever capital [Andy Reid] earned by saving the Chiefs from the abyss is now spent." https://t.co/IsvdzU00gM More excited about the Mahomes era to start than disappointed about season's end. At least I'm not used to the former https://t.co/BzIvwEI4T5
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".
