Jeff Bezos owns a newspaper that does not comport itself as the president’s personal Pravda. He has also, repeatedly, expressed a desire to shoot Donald Trump into outer space. Given these facts, it would be perfectly normal for Trump to harbor a grudge against the Amazon CEO. But it’s decidedly less normal for the president of the United States to implicitly threaten Bezos’s company with higher taxes, as retaliation for an accurate — but unflattering — story in the outlet he owns.
For the past three years, humanity has managed to keep global carbon emissions virtually stable. In 2014, emissions increased by a mere 0.7 percent, down from an average annual rate of 2.3 percent in the preceding decade. The following year saw zero emissions growth, while 2016 saw a piddling 0.2 percent rise. This development was among the most hopeful signs that climate scientists had seen in a generation. Emissions plateaued, even as the global economy grew. A better world looked possible.
Republicans have no affirmative case for their health-care bill. They have lies about why the bill is necessary (“Obamacare is collapsing”), lies about what it’s designed to do (reduce premiums and deductibles, and cover everyone), and lies about who would lose out from its passage (“absolutely nobody”).
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".
