@realDonaldTrump backs out of scheduled 1-on-1 interview w/ me after I decline to send campaign list of my questions. At 6 @ActionNewsJax pic.twitter.com/CybGLMoudx - Jenna Bourne (@jennaANjax) October 24, 2016 Jenna Bourne, a 27-year-old reporter for CBS47/Fox30 Action News Jax, has gotten a good amount of attention with the tweet above.
In March 2015, Hillary Clinton gave an address at an event for the prestigious Toner Prize for Excellence in Political Reporting - a highly anticipated occasion in light of Clinton's long and fractious relationship with the national political press corps. In her remarks, Clinton reflected on being asked to "spend an evening with a room full of political reporters."
It has been almost eight months since Donald Trump dramatically declared his intent to "open up" this country's libel laws. The assertion was absurd not only because even a strong President Trump wouldn't have the executive authority to flick his wrist and upend U.S. law overnight.
Over the past 10 days, the Erik Wemple Blog has written two posts questioning a key passage in the 2015 book by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard, " Killing Reagan." The passage posited that then-ABC News correspondent Sam Donaldson confronted President Ronald Reagan at a photo op on Aug.
In an informative session last week at Harvard's Institute of Politics, CNN Worldwide President Jeff Zucker addressed the rise of Donald Trump, CNN's role therein, Don Lemon, ratings, public-service journalism and more.
On Friday, the Wall Street Journal's Gerard Baker sent a memo to editorial staffers whose contours are familiar to those who work in the newspaper industry: "In order to limit the number of involuntary layoffs, we will be offering all news employees around the world - management and non-management - the option to elect to take an enhanced voluntary severance benefit," wrote Baker.
It's a great American tradition. Activists, partisans and, yes, sleazebags lie and cheat and steal to obtain red-hot information. Then they drop it in the mailboxes of journalists in hopes of generating publicity for their cause. Happens all the time, under the approving gaze of the Supreme Court, which ruled in the Bartnicki v.
"Fair and balanced" is a brilliant marketing slogan for Fox News, in addition to being a crock. Viewers know the contours: News anchors commonly gang up with a conservative commentator to beat down the liberal voice in panel discussions; the choice of news stories skews rightward; et cetera.
As the final presidential debate was concluding Wednesday night, so was an astonishing moderatorial performance. Fox News anchor Chris Wallace managed a tidy, headline-making affair between two opponents who couldn't even bring themselves to shake hands at the outset. This is no contest: Chris Wallace of Fox News has run laps around all previous moderators.
In a recent chat with his colleague and debate-moderation conqueror Chris Wallace, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly spoke about his approach to writing his "Killing" series of books. "What [co-author] Martin Dugard and I have crafted is a franchise for people who want to know about history, but they don't have time to read 900 pages.
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
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".
