"New York is a parochial town run by publishing media that likes to think it invented everything," said Don Waller, co-founder Back Door Man fanzine. This might explain why, early on, the punkness of L.A. bands like the Seeds and the Doors was ignored by New York, who decided that Lou Reed was "more street" than Jim Morrison, and that any town associated with the Eagles could never possess the grit of the Lower East Side, or the tortured poetry of Patti Smith.
In a first move toward enforcing his “America First” campaign promise, and days before his first State of the Union address in which he promoted a "strong, safe and proud America,” President Donald Trump approved tariff hikes on two foreign imports: solar panels made in China and washing machines from South Korea. It’s a move that he said would “protect American jobs” by increasing the cost of foreign products, thus favoring American companies.
On Twitter last week, Liam Gallagher hinted at a possible Oasis reunion. Though it's not the first time there has been Oasis reunion chatter, it was particularly strange, considering that Liam has said he'd rather eat his own shit than be in a band with his brother Noel again. But Liam's string of Tweets this time nearly broke the internet in the U.K. (In the U.S. we think of Oasis as one of many decent British bands, but over there they're like, I don't know, Kylie Jenner famous.)
I'm not a victim. What I say on social media and the work that I do as a journalist has nothing to do with my gender, race, or sexual orientation. That's never going to change. This is how I choose to conduct myself as a public person.
When I told a liberal friend today that I wasn't white (I had to remind him of this), and that I've dealt with racism my entire life, but make a choice not to turn it into a "brand" or parlay it into a byeline or job, his response was, "you're white ENOUGH." 🤔
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".
