Aisha Harris: It’s been really hard to keep track of everything. I think it feels like we’re coming back to the time of [accusations against Bill] Cosby just a couple years ago. It was 2014, I think, when that broke, and that felt like it took a little bit more time for it to become this big thing, for the accusers to sort of trickle out slower, like once every few days. Whereas now, we have women coming forward every hour, every morning since this broke a week ago as of this recording.
The bland candidate: Can Seth Moulton save the Democratic Party? Some seem to think so. Seth Stevenson headed to Iowa to find out what—if anything—the war hero–turned–congressman stands for. The myths of Islamic law: According to some right-wingers, Sharia law is threatening to take over America. Aymann Ismail addresses the confusion around what Sharia law is, and travels to Texas—a center of anti-Sharia protests—to investigate the state’s “foreign law” ban.
Health care hypocrite: Looks like Senate GOP members won’t vote on Graham-Cassidy after all, and Vice President Mike Pence won’t get a chance to break a tie on repealing Obamacare. But wait—remember when the former governor actually implemented the Affordable Care Act’s Medicaid expansion to great success in Indiana? Mark Joseph Stern recalls when Pence once went left on health care.
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".
