The Grammys is one of the most prestigious events in awards season, where the great and the good of the music world come out to bestow the year's most popular and critically-acclaimed artists, songs and albums with much-deserved prizes. Or so you'd think. The Grammys are notorious for making controversial, questionable and often downright terrible decisions — and it's not been free of stars making embarrassing or offensive gaffes either. Let's start with the bad decisions...
People are proud to be saying Merry Christmas again. I am proud to have led the charge against the assault of our c… https://t.co/TDmO0lcYHATrump's Christmas Eve post is part of a long line of statements playing into the rhetoric of a "war on Christmas." During a Values Voter summit in October, Trump told the audience: "We are stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values." "We’re getting near that beautiful Christmas season that people don’t talk about anymore," he added.
A Bosnian Croat war crimes defendant drank from a small bottle and claimed to have "taken poison" as the verdict in his case was read out at the UN's International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) at The Hague in the Netherlands on Wednesday. Former general Slobodan Praljak â€” one of six Bosnian Croat leaders up before the court â€” had just heard his 2013 sentence of 20 years' imprisonment for crimes in east Mostar had been upheld.
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".
