President Donald Trump this week questioned the impartiality of several attorneys hired by special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate whether Trump campaign associates colluded with the Russian government leading up to the 2016 U.S. presidential election. “I can say that the people that have been hired are all Hillary Clinton supporters, some of them worked for Hillary Clinton,” Trump said in a Fox News interview that was taped on Thursday and broadcast Friday.
Left-leaning activists, health analysts and other opponents have spent much of the month bemoaning a lack of media coverage on Senate Republicans’ secretive efforts to draft their legislation to repeal and replace significant parts of Obamacare. Morning Consult polling from recent weeks shows they may have an argument, with a variety of news stories — many pertaining to President Donald Trump — resonating more with the American public.
Senators recently delivered perhaps their firmest rebuke yet to President Donald Trump when they voted 98-2 to apply new sanctions against Russia, and a new Morning Consult/POLITICO survey shows most Americans are behind them. Roughly 3 in 5 registered voters (62 percent) in the poll said they supported new sanctions on Russia, including more than one-third (36 percent) who said they strongly supported them. Just 20 percent of respondents said they were opposed to the sanctions.
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".
