My mother always wanted me to be a doctor. She wanted it so much that when I got my first newspaper job as a sportswriter in Rockford, Ill., I actually thought about writing letters home on doctors’ stationery. I figured that would make her happy for awhile. Eventually, Momma Stein became comfortable with me following my heart, which eventually led me to the Sun Sentinel 36 years ago. The area was obviously very different then.
They are the biggest enemy of the president of the United States and his loyal brand of groupies. I’m talking about the media. Trump needs an enemy to get his base aroused, and the media is it. Hating Hillary only goes so far. The media is forever. So Trump has called the media “the enemy of the people.” He has called them “sick.” He says they “don’t like America.” And his robotic followers eat it up because they eat up anything Trump says.
Will Dixie cups be the next to go? Getting rid of Confederate street names in Hollywood was a good idea, particularly since one street was named after a former KKK honcho. I don’t mind getting rid of some Confederacy monuments, although I don’t really see what purpose it is serving. But now, political correctness is going too far. There is a movement afoot to get rid of the name Dixie Highway because it is offending some sensibilities. Dixie Highway is a geographic designation.
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".
