Sometimes, when thinking about President Trump and our reactions to the things that he says and does, I’m reminded of the type of ‘good guy’ who, when touting his personal attributes and distinguishing qualities, lists nothing but mundanities as if they’re exceptional. He “has a job.” He “has his own place” and “pays his own bills.” He’s “never been arrested” and he “takes care of his children.”Of course, there’s nothing wrong with any of these things. These are the right things to do.
Video footage surfaced Friday evening of a black woman inside of Pizza Milano — a popular Pittsburgh-area pizza chain — being pushed, restrained, headbutted, and tackled by a manager of the store, who then, while on top of her, slammed her head repeatedly into the floor. Equally disturbing is that Pizza Milano appeared to be busy — with numerous workers and customers (including the person taking the video) — and no one intervened until after the woman’s head was smashed into the floor.
I get it, I get it, I get it, I get it. No, I really do get it. I get the hell out of it. I get the shit out of it. I get it so much it hurts. And I don’t get everything. Shit, I don’t even get most things.
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".
