Ed Henry once held an exalted position at Fox News. As a correspondent covering the Hillary Clinton campaign, he did his assigned job of badgering the candidate into taking questions. In fact, the Clinton traveling press corps could use a little Ed Henry right about now. That won't be happening, however.
WikiLeaks is famous for unsettling the lives of powerful people - diplomats, military leaders, politicians - with its disclosures of emails and cables and otherwise private communications. Little people can also be unsettled by these radical-transparency data dumps, according to an Aug.
Chyron of the day pic.twitter.com/1d37jALCEB - Adrian Taylor (@adrianwtaylor) August 25, 2016 In a speech this afternoon in New Hampshire, Donald Trump said of his opponent: "As all of these revelations have been discovered, some this week, many this month, Hillary Clinton has been hiding. She's been hiding. Where is she?"
Good on Stephen Colbert. The "Late Show" host last night welcomed CNN host Anderson Cooper for a little chat, and the name of former Donald Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski arose. The late-night host moved into media-accountability mode: "Oh, Corey Lewandowski who now works at CNN. So he works for you guys.
Will any group of people ever eclipse Trumpites in producing golden moments on cable news? Moments ago on CNN, the topic was, of course, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's allegedly softening stance on immigration. He has shifted his rhetoric from a primary-campaign hard-liner riffing about building a wall and uprooting 11 million undocumented immigrants via a "deportation force," to something that sounds a great deal different.
Judd Burstein, the New York lawyer representing Andrea Tantaros in her sexual harassment suit against Fox News and its top officials, tells the Erik Wemple Blog there's more to come. Monday's lawsuit was only the beginning.
The Clinton campaign has asked the Associated Press to amend or remove a tweet promoting an investigative story on the meetings of Hillary Clinton when she served as secretary of state. It reads, "BREAKING: AP analysis: More than half those who met Clinton as Cabinet secretary gave money to Clinton Foundation."
Almost as reliably as he shills for Donald Trump and bad-mouths the Black Lives Matter movement, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly levels broad-brush attacks against the Internet. Last night, he welcomed harebrained Fox News analyst Dr. Keith Ablow and an expert to slam social media and meanness on social media.
Fox News's Megyn Kelly had a sound strategy. She had absorbed an endless amount of Twitter-borne abuse from Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump following their famous showdown at the Aug. 6, 2015, primary debate; Trump even boycotted the January Fox News debate in Iowa over concerns about her.
If Andrea Tantaros's lawsuit against Fox News had been filed on July 5, it would have dominated the day's news. A former Fox News host on the show "The Five" and later "Outnumbered," Tantaros alleges that now-deposed Fox News chief Roger Ailes sexually harassed her, isolated her and demoted her.
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 politicians Barack Obama and Mitt Romney 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.
