Who Said It: Anthony Scaramucci or Tommy from Goodfellas? Newly-installed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci talks like someone shoved a Martin Scorcese script up his ass. Case-in-point: This remarkable rant dictated to the New Yorker's Ryan Lizza last night. We wanted to test this theory, so we've juxtaposed lines from Scaramucci's interview with lines spoken by Joe Pesci as Tommy DeVito, the violently angry and profane gangster from the 1990 film Goodfellas. WHO SAID IT?
GOP'S "Skinny Repeal" in Danger Thanks to a "Pig in a Poke"? WHAT? The Washington Post is reporting that the GOP's "Skinny Repeal"—which is a scaled-back version of Obamacare that Senate leader Mitch McConnell has been trying to jam down America's throats—is now on very wobbly legs thanks to three senators who are refusing to vote for it unless certain conditions are met.
Your Landlord Doesn't Need a Reason to Evict You. Advocates Want that to Change. MOVING IS STRESSFUL: Searching for a house, coming up with the extra cash for deposits, cleaning, packing, unpacking. Moving after an eviction, though, can be devastating. Oregon law dictates landlords only need to give either one or two months' notice if they want you out, depending on how long you've been a tenant—but they don't need to reveal their motives.
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".
