Anthony Weiner and his soon-to=be ex Huma Abedin pleaded with a judge to allow them to keep their divorce case secret. The disgraced ex-lawmaker, whose sexting scandal helped hand the White House to Donald Trump, urged a Manhattan judge to allow the case to be considered as Anonymous vs. Anonymous to frustrate reporters seeking dirt on the power couple. Abedin, a former top aide to Hillary Clinton, also wants the details shielded from the public. A judge said she would consider the request.
President Trump’s legal team reportedly wanted Jared Kushner fired over his involvement in the Russia collusion scandal — but his father-in-law refused to dump him. The Wall Street Journal said “some” of Trump’s shifting legal team recommended Kushner be ousted from his position as a top White House adviser in June. Trump, whose daughter Ivanka is married to Kushner, refused to heed their advice, insisting Kushner did nothing wrong.
Ousted White House adviser Sebastian Gorka lashed out at liberal American Jews, saying they “have basically become anti-Israel.”Gorka claimed he had come under attack because of his pro-Israel stance — not his long association with far right wing Hungarian group that was allied to the Nazis. “I’ve been a great friend of Israel and I have spoken with honesty about the threat of Jihadism to the United States,” he said in an interview with right-wing radio host Michael Savage, Haaretz reported.
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".
