On Thursday, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted to strike down the Obama administration's net neutrality rules, a wildly unpopular decision that drew a lot of outcry. At least one presidential adult son didn't seem too upset about it, however, and he got a pretty good roasting in the process. Donald Trump Jr. didn't realize his dad's FCC chair was the one who pulled the trigger on net neutrality, for starters.
In the country of El Salvador, abortion has been strictly illegal since 1998, meaning nearly a whole generation of El Salvadoran women have been denied reproductive rights for nearly two decades. And the country's strident ban on abortion has had some considerable consequences for women who suffer miscarriages, like Teodora del Carmen Vásquez.
If you're the Environmental Protection Agency, one thing you probably don't want is a viral image of weird black sludge coating a water fountain in your headquarters. And yet, sometimes things don't go the way you want them to ― according to climate change advocacy group Safe Climate Campaign, an EPA water fountain got somehow coated in black sludge, possibly sewage. Bustle has reached out the the EPA for comment.
It was a misogynist smear campaign from jump, with the “journalistic ethics” line reverse-engineered to justify prurient interest in a guy’s deranged screed about his ex. Then neo-Nazis hopped aboard. Those who didn’t see it chose not to. https://t.co/FrsUaDrZLB
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".
