This week's question: Is the left-wing complicit in the shooting of members of the U.S. Congress? Left-wing political violence poses a clear and present danger to the stability of capitalist democracies. For the Left, the entire point is to incite revolution and overthrow the status quo. James T. Hodgkinson is the 66-year-old Bernie Sanders supporter who opened fire with a high power rifle on dozens of people at a baseball practice in Alexandria, Va.
This week's question: Should U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May feel sorry for calling a snap election? In war and politics, the greatest threat always comes from within. Treachery, treason and insurgency are the customary tactics of the ignoble. But victory’s most pernicious threat comes from deliberate action instigated by a leader — an unforced error. In his column, Garth draws an incorrect parallel between B.C. Premier Christy Clark and British Prime Minister Theresa May. Unlike the recent B.C.
This week's question: Should protecting transgender rights be included in the Canadian Human Rights Act? Hate has lost all meaning. All one need do is disagree with any issue of importance to the Left to find him or herself branded as someone that hates. Oops, I just used him and her pronouns. Pardon me. My pronouns are he, him, his and himself.
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
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".
