Turkey is directly borrowing from the Israeli government’s playbook. The Turkish Foreign Ministry claimed that the Kurdish Workers’ Party (PKK) is using civilians as “human shields.” The allegation is quoted in reports by AP and AFP. The leftist, secular, feminist Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) is affiliated with the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) and Women’s Protection Units (YPJ).
VICE made a brief documentary about the destruction of Baghdad’s health care system and the horrors Baghdadi doctors must endure since the illegal 2003 US invasion and subsequent occupation that destroyed the country, killed at least one million people (in a conservative estimate), and created the conditions that led to the rise of ISIS. In the film, a Baghdadi doctor estimates that Sadr City needs four or five entire new hospitals to treat the torrents of patients who need medical assistance.
Erica Garner has passed away. She was taken from us. Erica did not die a “natural” death; she was killed by the same white supremacist system that murdered her father, the same system that destroyed the Garner family. As soon as the last breath left Erica’s body, however, reactionary center-right Democratic Party operatives slithered out of the woodwork to try to exploit her legacy for their own political interests.
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".
