From the very first it may have been about former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Back when Governor Sarah Palin suddenly rose out of the Alaska wilderness to excoriate the “Eastern Establishment” and send New York’s and Los Angeles’ late night pundits to the fainting couch. Back when Texas Governor Rick Perry stood at the steps of the Alamo and declared to a horde of anti-Obamacare rebels and Tenthers, “States rights, states rights, states rights!”Suddenly, revolution was in the air.
One of Hercules’ first tasks was to clean the stables. This came to mind this week as the Democrats made a quantum leap into the millennium. The aggressive sure-footedness of a gathering force of women abused has proven itself in Alabama and in Washington, D.C. with a vengeance. There is a lot of work ahead. The problems go back decades and have threatened to destroy the Democratic Party. They may have forced the election of a president that many here and abroad consider unfit for office.
Romney’s job has always been to fix things which are broke. He did so at the great 2002 Winter Olympics, he did so at Bain Capital and he did so as governor of Massachusetts. And he is a good luck guy: Surrounding his governorship of Massachusetts the New England Patriots rose out of nowhere to begin winning everything there was to win. And the Red Sox even began to win, taking their first World Series since 1918 and lifting The Curse from us here in New England.
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".
