Sebastian Gorka had some unsolicited words of advice for Harvey Weinstein after the Hollywood producer’s fall from grace this week over a slew of articles detailing decades of allegations of sexual harassment and assault. Gorka, who as ousted from his post on the White House’s National Security Council in August, was referring to news reports that Vice President Mike Pence refuses to dine or meet alone with women other than his wife.
David Duke was not pleased after the New York Times praised the Forward for its dogged coverage of the rise of anti-Semitism and the “alt-right.”The former Ku Klux Klan leader accused this media organization of being “communist” in a tweet sent after the article appeared.

Julian Edelman, the New England Patriots wide receiver, has been benched for the rest of the football season due to an injury but that’s not stopping him from inspiring children with his new story-book. Edelman is set to read from his new children’s book, “Flying High,” on Tuesday to a group of kids at the Newton, Massachusetts Jewish community center. “Flying High” is a semi-autobiographical story about Edelman’s life - instead following the adventures of the football playing squirrel Jules.
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".
