Now that President Trump has grudgingly been goaded into denouncing white supremacy, he needs to take concrete actions to address the tragic violence in Charlottesville this weekend. President Trump took a useful first step on Monday by labeling the violent actors as thugs, promising action against lawbreakers, and condemning racism.
Bin Laden knew that his terror could not inflict a grave blow on a strong country like the United States. The logic of the 9/11 attacks, however, was to cause America to harm itself by allowing fear to overcome our judgment and abandon what has made us the most successful nation in the history of the planet.
If you want to be president of the United States in these dangerous times, you better understand that terrorism is a form of psychological warfare. Terrorist groups use spectacular forms of violence to make it seem they are far more powerful than they really are.
Not to mention it would undermine any Israeli will to do hard things, since it knows that Trump can be rolled, and it can get everything it wants without making any concessions to the Palestinians. https://t.co/iTfffypjN1
It is time for all decent people in public life to say, boldly and unequivocally, that the President is a bigot & his actions are damaging our security, our national cohesion, and status as a great nation. #NavajoCodeTalkers#BritainFirst#MAGA
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".
