I guess we’ll have to change our plans for the weekend Oct 7-9. We were going to head up to the Colusa Casino, but then I noticed who the headline entertainer was going to be. I mean, how could we possibly go to see a performer named Bobby Lee? “Bobby,” if you’re familiar with the nickname, was the familiar usage for none other than Robert E. Lee. Think I’m kidding?
I would hope that the thousands of rescuers risking their own lives to save others from the ravages of Hurricane Harvey have a diversity profile approved by liberals. They must have had the proper number of women, minorities, LGBT and transgender members before they were allowed to begin their treacherous work. That work is still going on, by the way, and is truly hazardous.
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse – something happens to prove you wrong. If you’re wondering why I focus on the left, and not the neo-Nazis, for example, it’s because the extreme right is a constant presence with minimal influence, while the extreme politically correct crowd is gaining strength by the day. How else would you explain the decision by ESPN to pull the Asian-American announcer off the broadcast of the University of Virginia – William and Mary game?
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".
