Dr. Kelli Ward, Senator John McCain’s former challenger, was asked on Friday if she believed that he should step down over his failing health and if she believes she should be considered as a replacement. Not one to beat around the bush, Ward responded in the affirmative to both questions. Ward’s straightforward response to the question created a storm online, as NeverTrumpers and liberals both pounced on her remarks to call her insensitive.
A man who attempted to kill a stranger’s dog during a road rage incident last week has been arrested and charged with two counts of animal cruelty involving torture and torment of a living creature after being identified by users of the 4chan message board /pol/. A witness video of the incident was uploaded to YouTube showing the assailant ripping a couple’s pet dog from their vehicle and throwing it at least 30 feet during the incident last Wednesday.
The Anti-Defamation league has ironically published a list defaming and lumping together 36 people, all with unique views and opinions, as being â€œalt-rightâ€? or â€œalt-lightâ€? in an attempt to squash right-wing voices. The report, titled â€œFrom Alt Right to Alt Lite: Naming the Hate,â€? is listed under the organizationâ€™s tab for â€œAnti-Semitism in the US,â€? but includes several people who are themselves Jewish — including Gateway Punditâ€™s White House Correspondent Lucian Wintrich.
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".
