Chuck Todd uncharacteristically challenged the president's chief congressional negotiator, Marc Short, when he gave a rather disingenuous response to a question about Donald Trump's cohort's racist ad. Chuck Todd did not let the president's chief congressional negotiator get away with misinforming about Trump's complicity in the racist shutdown ad. Here is the transcript. Marc Short: We want to solve DACA. We recognize that these are people aged between 16 and 36 who have work permits.
The drumbeat of the impending blue wave is getting louder, so much so that even the traditional mainstream media are starting to quantify the lead-up. Recently, CNN even led a segment with the graphic that included the words “SINCE TRUMP INAUGURATION: DEMS FLIP 34 STATE SEATS, GOP FLIP 4.”But Democrats must not get ahead of themselves. They must do the hard work to keep the momentum.
One thing we all must admit: Donald Trump continues to drive the news cycle, day in and day out, like no other. It can be exhausting at times. News outlets, bloggers, and vloggers must decide what to cover, and they tend to follow the same stories. Unfortunately, they tend to ignore the same issues, and those issues are often more important. Many bloggers and do vloggers attempt to fill that gap.
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".
