Maxine Waters has represented, in the U.S. House of Representatives, a region of communities on the southside of Los Angeles since 1991. She is criticized for not even living in her district, one of four members of Congress in California to make the claim. However, truth be told, her lavish mansion in South Los Angeles used to be in her district, but redistricting shifted Waters and a few of her neighbors, into the 37th District now represented by Democratic Rep. Karen Bass.
The Net Neutrality argument is an old one that has been around much longer than the internet. Long before today’s technology was even a nugget of thought in science fiction novels the concept of statism existed. In today’s America, the Marxist idea of collectivism and utopia goes a little something like, if the federal government doesn’t maintain some kind of control over something the big bad corporations will take away our freedom regarding that something - whatever it may be.
Bob Ley, leading the Friday Four on ESPN’s Outside the Lines, mentioned on a recent episode that the NFL’s Thursday Night Football game on television lost 27% of its audience, compared to last year’s numbers from the game during the same time of the year. That’s more than a quarter of its viewers! Faced with such a stunning revelation of reality in 2017, he asked if the violence of the game was turning off viewers.
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".
